A grass-roots parent movement has started to see Christian education continue in the Santa Rosa area. Click below to get the latest information and to see how God has led us up to this point.
On Thursday, January 31st it was announced that Rincon Valley Christian School was closing. On that same evening there was discussion amongst parents to see if God was up to something new. A group of parents met a few days later to grieve, pray and discuss our options. The next step seemed to be the establishment of a new entity with a parent-based board. An invitation went out to a group of people who had proven investment in the school and around 20 people gathered to solidify initial plans. A follow-up meeting occurred and an executive board has been established along with a handful of subcommittees. One parent, after reflecting on the culture that's been created at this school, asked what do parents do next? Her answer really defines our effort... "They make a plan."
The Executive Board has gathered to help direct efforts to preserve Christian Education in Santa Rosa. We are exploring all options at this point and would ask for your prayers and support. The board is made of people from various churches and backgrounds. In order of the picture, from left to right...
