Board of Trustees

Zeeland Christian School is led by the Holy Spirit through the work of our Head of School and Board of Trustees.

A Note from our Board President

Zeeland Christian School Family,

“Healthy Community” can mean many things to many people, though a common understanding often includes a group of individuals where spiritual, emotional, relational, physical, intellectual, and economic aspects of life are well balanced and tended to. As I reflect on the state of Zeeland Christian School, I thank God for his hand on us in all aspects of this view of community-life. The Lord has indeed blessed and guided ZCS through the years and continues to do so today!

With the launch of the 2017-2018 school-year launch upon us, I am so grateful to share that from the board and staff’s perspective, ZCS is on a firm foundation, and indeed our view is that the community of ZCS is a healthy one. From a spiritual standpoint, the Lord is glorified at ZCS, and the individual relationship of each staff member and student toward intimacy with Christ is being discipled, encouraged, and mentored. Relationally and emotionally, staff and students are being encouraged to love one-another well; speaking the truth in love, keeping short accounts with one another, and encouraging each other. Intellectually, students and faculty alike are being encouraged and challenged to reach their personal best. Economically, ZCS continues to be blessed by God’s provision and sound stewardship of resources be they financial or physical property.

The 2017-2018 school year will be marked by a variety of things, one of which is our new Head of School, Tim McAboy, at the helm. God’s clear hand in connecting Tim and his family with ZCS is one we receive as a gift and one that assures us anew that the Lord is at work in our midst. As we have done our best to walk by faith, God has proven faithful!

Please join in continuing to lift ZCS before the Lord, praying for His full purposes to be accomplished through His school, for His provision to continue, and for His protection to be at hand.

In Christ alone,

Brian VandenBrink
