Educating Through Faith in Action

February 14, 2024

OKLAHOMA CITY – I have worked as a teacher in Montana, California, Washington, Idaho and South Dakota. Through this journey, I formed a firm understanding of what Adventist education was; however, upon arriving in Oklahoma City, Okla., I met people living their faith in action. Those who know me are likely weary of hearing this, but I am constantly amazed by those who work at and around Parkview Adventist Academy (PAA). Everyone is full of faith in action: when issues arise, no one ever says, “Oh, I will pray for you.” No, they stop you in your tracks, grab hold of you and pray for you in that moment. Never before have I experienced such active faith. Parkview Adventist Academy is a rare place of active faith where the spirit of God is alive, directing our steps. As a new principal, I am constantly amazed by the stories I hear of how God has taken care of PAA over its 124-year history, and I am excited to see where He takes us next. When God is with you, who can stand against you?
