What do you love about Zeeland Christian?

Having the opportunity to work at a place that has meant so much to our family over the years. In all my years of work my sense of purpose in my work has never felt stronger since starting my second career at ZCS! The people I work with are amazing. Seeing kids walk by my office and wave is such a wonderful perk.

Why are you passionate about Christian education?

My wife and I are products of Christian Education and we never thought twice about giving this to our own children. The partnership of a Christian School/Christian teachers teaching all things through the lens of God's Word is a wonderful opportunity to give our children, helping direct their paths toward a deeper understanding of God, His love for us, and how to better serve Him this side of heaven.
