He is Faithful at Every Turn
by Pastor Samuel Greer, Principal of Western Michigan Christian High Scholl and Middle School
I am often asked for a statement that reflects my testimony to the power and authority of Jesus Christ. This past summer has brought me to a place of absolute trust and confidence in Christ as Master of the universe. Our family was ready to embrace the joys of summer break when, suddenly, life took an unpredictable turn. Instead, our summer was spent with daily visits to the intensive care unit of our local hospital and the Traumatic Brain Unit of Spectrum Health. Since June, my family has wrestled with the challenges of life and the daily struggles of human frailty in the wake of my wife Judy’s fall at home.
Remarkably, we’ve also experienced great blessings and even clarity in this trial. The power of prayer and the strength of the Christian community has been the stabilizing foundation over the last several months. Working and worshipping with individuals that share the hope we have in Jesus Christ has strengthened me for the journey that is ahead.
I am left with a strengthened conviction that living with purpose and using our individual and collective God-given gifts to further His Kingdom is a privilege and a blessed opportunity that we all have daily; one that should be rejoiced, leveraged and surely not squandered.
I praise God for the Christian community of both Western Michigan Christian School and the lakeshore. I am left with a strengthened conviction that living with purpose and using our individual and collective
God-given gifts to further His Kingdom is a privilege and a blessed opportunity that we all have daily; one that should be rejoiced, leveraged and surely not squandered. My hope, for those who will read this statement, is that you will sense the need, mirror my conviction, and join as one school family in support of Christian education to advance the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
I believe, with all of my heart, that God’s plan and purpose are being lived out in the classrooms and hallways at WMC and at all four feeder schools. It is my prayer that you will participate in the mission of sharing Jesus Christ and providing Christian education to every family.
