Welcome from Spiritual Life at VCS

Central to the mission of Village Christian School is our invitation to consider, respond to, and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Thus we seek to provide a distinctly Christian education. While spiritual life at Village shows up in classes, programs, retreats, and opportunities for service and mission, spiritual vitality permeates everything we do. We do not believe that life with God can be compartmentalized into a Sunday worship experience, a third-period Biblical Studies class, or even a mission project in Mexicali. We desire to be a school that leads students and their families to love God, love others and love who God created them to be (Matthew 22:36-40). All of our gifted and loving teachers, each administrator, and every employee at Village Christian School shares a passion for Christ and seeks to model Jesus to our students. As we lead students into a life of authentic discipleship we keep these key questions in mind:

Students are asking:

  • “Who am I?”
    In response, we help students discover their identity rooted in their calling as God’s beloved.
  • “Where do I belong?”
    In response, we teach students to care for one another and our world as a part of God's Family.
  • “Do I and my choices matter?”
    In response, we help students serve as they experience their lives in alignment with God’s kingdom purpose in the world.

Personally, I am honored that God has called me to be the Spiritual Life Director in the ministry of Village Christian School. “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us” (2 Cor. 5:20). As the Spiritual Life Director, I have been given the task of representing Jesus’ appeal for all to be reconciled to a life in Him; a life of love and purpose. This life-changing message is one that I fully believe is meant for every single person.

If you ever have any questions, comments, or find yourself in need of prayer, please know that my door is always open, my email awaits and my phone is just a few dials away. This invitation is open to all students, parents, faculty, local ministry leaders, etc.

Sincerely,

George Ratchford
Spiritual Life Director
