Difference Maker Update
Our Difference Maker students truly stepped out to be His light in our community this year, shining His love and care to those in need. They pointed people to Jesus through service, seeing others through His eyes and taking action to bless and support them. Each student was willing to give their time and talents in big ways to bring these projects to fruition. We are incredibly proud of our 2019-2020 Difference Makers! 

As our year comes to a close, we would like to share some GOOD news about what God has been doing through our students this past semester!
