Midland Christian School Receives 5-Year Accreditation

Midland Christian School was recently approved for a five-year accreditation by Christian Schools International.

CSILogo“We worked hard to achieve this status,” said Head of School, Carianne Robbins. “Accreditation recognizes Midland Christian School with what is regarded as the gold seal of excellence from a nationwide accrediting body that has been working to advance Christian education for nearly 100 years.“

“It also reassures families that send their children to Midland Christian School that they are receiving an excellent education that is integrated with our Christ-centered mission,” Robbins said.

The accreditation was awarded after a year-long process followed by a two and a half day on-site visit by a team of six educational professionals from various schools in Michigan and Georgia. The team reviewed the validity of information the school submitted, analyzed school improvement goals and collaborated with the faculty and board to explore what the school will look like in five years when it accomplishes the goals of its school improvement plan.

Accreditation is both significant and a significant effort, according to Bob VanWieren, Accreditation Program Director of Christian Schools International of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

“Schools must analyze their academic program, student services and operations based on best-practice standards and their own Christian mission,” VanWieren said. Midland Christian School joins a select group of 112 other schools accredited by Christian Schools International.

“We are excited about where God is leading Midland Christian School in the next five years,” Robbins said. “We have a great team of teachers, parents and board members working together to make sure we have a solid foundation of excellence in the education we provide. This accreditation is confirmation that we’re on the right path and encourages us to press on to the high calling of educating children to impact the world for God’s glory.”

Midland Christian School is a multi-denominational school founded in 1960. The school offers a classical program with challenging academics based on a foundation of Biblical truth for students in grades Pre-K through 12. It is the first and only classical Christian school in the Great Lakes Bay Region. More information is available at www.midlandchristianschool-mi.org.

Founded in 1920, Christian Schools International works to advance Christian education in North America and worldwide. The organization supports schools in their task of teaching students to know God and his world and to glorify him through obedient service.

GUYS NIGHT OUT

Raising the next generation of Christ-like men and boys is a responsibility and a privilege. It seems like a daunting task at times fighting against moral decay, violence, hopelessness and all the pressures of society. We should approach these challenges with guidance.

We have the privilege of receiving guidance from Brian Molitor, who has written three books on parenting and formed the Malachi Global Foundation, which inspired by Malachi 4:6 strives to “turn the hearts of fathers to the children and the hearts of children to their father.”

Molitor is also the CEO of Molitor International, which has been consulting and training international clients for over 30 years, including companies in the business, healthcare, government and ministry sectors.

At 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 11, Brian Molitor will be giving an interactive presentation for men and boys following a free meal hosted by Midland Christian School. This event will focus on empowering local men, including coaches, mentors, and fathers, with the skills to develop stronger relationships with boys and young men.

Molitor will place a particular emphasis in his presentation on strategic planning, lifelong mentoring, intentional blessing and rites of passage for boys.

This event is completely free. Anyone interested in attending the complimentary meal and presentation is invited to register online at guysnightouttickets.eventbrite.com or call to reserve a place at (989) 835-9881.

Happy Advent!

Advent 2

As you may know, Advent is the first season in the church calendar. Since the 7th century A.D., Christians have included this celebration in their preparation for Christmas Day. The word “advent” originates from the Latin word advenio which means coming to. Advent is the time when we focus on Christ coming to the world, as the Israelites anticipated the coming of their Messiah throughout history. In the Old Testament, over 400 scriptures and prophecies outline His birth, life, death, resurrection, and return. God had a plan to redeem His people. He declared His plan to His prophets over the centuries and is fulfilling His Word even now.

As we walk through the days leading up to Christmas, it is neat to think about the purpose of Advent being twofold: first, it prepares us for the celebration of the birth of Christ and second, it reminds us that we are eagerly waiting for Jesus’ return in glory.

“Prepare the way of the Lord” serves as a main theme of this season. As we get ready for Christmas, we should not neglect to prepare our lives for Jesus, who came as “the light of the world.” His light penetrated a dark world, which allowed all to see their Messiah, and the hope of their future.

Today we need to be prepared for the coming of Christ. Be ready and watchful, for the light of the world has come and will surely come again!
