Education Day

Our 32 schools and 11 preschools are on the front line of mission, sharing the love of Jesus every day with our students and our communities. Stop by our Education Tent to learn about our schools, pick up gifts, enter drawings, inquire about scholarships, or participate in our 3rd Annual Scavenger Hunt (more information in the Gazette).  You won’t want to miss Thursday evening in the main tent, as students, teachers, and principals share what God has been doing for His kids.
