The Bridge: October 8th

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

I hope this week finds you well! Read on to meet our Health and Security team, learn about this week’s academics, and find out how you can send your student an Encouragement Pack to brighten their week.

Our goal is to serve you and your student well, and we are able to improve thanks to your feedback. Therefore, we would love to have you take the Parent Survey–the survey will take less than five minutes and will be a tremendous help in achieving that goal.

This week, our freshman will be exploring the topic of Creationism with Mr. Bryan Osborne from Answers in Genesis. Mr. Osbourne earned his master’s degree in Education from Lee University and has taught Bible History in a public school for 13 years. He also is a sought-after speaker with Answers in Genesis and has authored many books, including Quick Answers to Tough Questions and Quick Answers to Social Issues.

The sophomore class will study Ministry of the Local Church with Dr. Sean Pierce this week. Dr. Pierce started and pastored several churches throughout his time in ministry, and is currently serving as the lead pastor of River of Life church in Albany, New York. He earned his Master of Divinity from Mid-America Baptist Seminary and his Doctor of Ministry from Golden Gate Baptist Seminary.
