Portrait of a Kingdom Educator

 

At Northland Christian, we believe school should be an extension of the Christian home. As parents, you are entrusting your most valuable possessions to your child’s educators. What an honor it is for us to come along side you to bring your children up in the love of Jesus Christ.

As a Kingdom Education school, we hold our teachers to the highest of standards. The portrait of a Kingdom Educator is reflected in the portrait of a Kingdom graduate as our teachers are learning, loving, and leading their students to Christ. Our educators are living out their God-given calling to infuse your child’s education with the love and redemption of Jesus.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
— Mark 12:30-31
