“Learning in the warmth of God’s love”

“In 1985 two gifted young mothers in our church family came to our church leadership team and sought our counsel on starting a Christian pre-school through our ministries!  God affirmed the plan and vision and granted us favor in the community that has led to an ongoing highly respected pre-school program and elementary school  that is sought out by families in Arizona and Mexico (Nogales, Sonora) due to its proven quality”
