"My heart's desire for my students is three fold. First I want to make sure each one of my students have accepted Jesus Christ as personal Savior. 'What would it profit someone if they gain the whole world, but lose their own soul?' I also want to encourage my students to work hard to honor the Lord by using the gifts and abilities they have to honor Him. Finally, I have no greater joy than to hear that my students continue walking in the truth. After leaving CCC, I want to see them go on and live their lives for God because nothing else really matters."
