Prepare the Way Preschool (P.T.W.) is a unique ministry at Allen Creek Community Church because it’s “Self-Supporting”. That means all operational costs (from salaries to supplies) are covered by the tuitions of the families; it doesn’t “cost” the church anything. It also means that it can go kind of “un-noticed” for weekend attenders at AC3. But P.T.W. contributes to the mission of AC3…a LOT. Not only do the students get a quality education, but they get a Gospel education, and the families are exposed to church life. Over the years, many have become part of the AC3 family because their child was a student!
So, when changes occur at Prepare the Way the news doesn’t always reach the rest of the church through the channels other ministries have…and therefore: THIS up-date!
P.T.W. Director, Chandra White is announcing her retirement, effective 5/28/21
- This school year will continue, business as usual.
- The 2020-21 school year – Chandra will stay on as Director/Teacher. Assistant Teacher, Brenda Hazen will pursue her next adventure and Kristi Lindholm will come on board in that role.
- The 2021-22 school year – Kristi will take on the Director/Teacher role and a new assistant will be hired.
Kristi is very excited to join P.T.W. and we have no doubt that she will do a fantastic job! Her qualifications include a B.A. in Elementary Education, a wide range of teaching experience in Kindergarten, 2nd and 5th grade and subbing in Developmental Kindergarten through High school. Kristi, her husband George and their two teenage kids are long-time AC3 attenders and servants.
Brenda has loved working at P.T.W. and we have loved having her with us! She has been an absolutely outstanding teacher. She will miss PTW, but we know that God will take her exactly where she needs to be.
Please join us in praying for Prepare The Way and everyone involved as this transition takes place.
