Interim Head of School

I am so thankful you have chosen to visit our site. As you explore Central and get to know us, I hope you will catch a glimpse of the wonderful things happening at our school.

For over six decades, the Lord has sustained Central Christian School, and we gladly rejoice in the ways children and adults alike have come to know Him more deeply by being a part of our community. We're humbled that the infinite, personal God longs to love and know His people and to be loved and known by us in return. This is one of the reasons we chose Micah 6:8 as our theme verse for the 2019-2020 school year:

He has shown you O mortal what is good.
   And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly, and to love mercy,
   And to walk humbly with your God.

It amazes me that God isn't looking for us to follow a program; He wants us. He wants us to love Him and what He loves. And, that's why Central Christian School exists. When I walk the halls of the school, I see evidences of lives that have been molded here. For generations, the Lord has brought remarkably gifted and loving teachers to Central. He has brought families which have gone on to influence the city and the world. He has blessed us with facilities that meet the demands of a vigorous curriculum. He has shepherded the school under the strong leadership of our Board and caring ministry of Central Presbyterian Church. He has allowed us to receive national recognition for the quality of Central’s program.

More than these tangible evidences, God’s faithfulness and steadfast love drive the very heartbeat of Central Christian School. For, God’s pursuing grace is indispensable to the Gospel of Jesus, which is at the core of our community. As a result, we have hope in Him. We are empowered to engage the world with the recognition that God’s goodness penetrates hearts, enlivens minds, and brings about restoration in a broken world.

This is foundational to our school mission. Because of God’s sustaining and steadfast love, we respond by a Passion for God, Love for Truth, and Zeal to Serve. Our desires and hopes for our students are not rooted in changing aspirations. Rather, our mission is driven by a response to who God is and what He has done. As a result, we want our students to learn in commitment to excellence and truth. We want them to be boldly and curiously creative in their exploration of God’s world. We want them to engage the world in transformative ways, because they recognize the profound dignity of all people created in God’s image. We want them to celebrate diversity, because these unique stories and experiences help the community know and love God in deeper ways.

My hope is that you will come experience Central Christian School first-hand. At Central, you’ll see a rich community of teachers  and staff, students, and parents who are being shaped by the Gospel of Jesus. Join us in that!

Richest blessings to you,
Noah Brink
Interim Head of School
