“Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?”* Everyone in this world has a calling. Have you ever felt that your calling is to be a part of something that only God can orchestrate? Do you yearn to reach beyond your grasp toward a vision so exciting and so all consuming that it requires an exercise of maximum faith and sacrifice to be accomplished? Doug, Danny, and Larry Adams, David Mann, Roger Moss, Chuck Dick, Mark Conklin and Tommy Spinks have all experienced that desire, and it would be easy for any and all of them to take credit for the dream of SRCS. The truth of the matter is, God bestowed each of them with gifts which, even alone, make them extraordinary people, but together unite them under His banner to educate children with the goal of building a better world for Jesus Christ. Consider the following when wondering where the idea of Strong Rock Christian School came from:
“This is what the Lord says: Let not the wise man boast of his
wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength, or the rich man
boast of his riches. But let him who boasts boast about this:
that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who
exercises kindness, justice, and righteousness on Earth. For
in these I delight, declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 9:23-24.
Strong Rock Christian School is an enormous project, which has benefited from the tremendous input of a variety of learning institutions, churches, friends, and families throughout the country. The foundations of Strong Rock Christian School result from the realization and recognition of the unmet needs of children, parents, teachers, and indeed entire communities. Strong Rock Christian School will work to meet the needs of each while, in turn, empowering them to meet the needs of others. Truthfully, many people could lay claim to the ideas that have shaped Strong Rock Christian School, but we know that the true vision comes from God above – The Strong Rock.
