Encouraging One Another

January 27, 2017
By Mr. Matt Searson

My wife and I had the exciting opportunity to watch our cross country athletes run at the state meet in Jefferson City back in November.  It was a special day as our ladies won the Missouri Class 1 State Championship.  At the meet the “veteran” cross country parents let me know that it was important for us to spread out across the 3.1 mile course so we could cheer on our runners at different stages of the race.  They knew there were specific places (like Firehouse Hill) where that encouragement would be critical.  


During our professional development days in November, I shared with our teachers encouraging comments we received through the family satisfaction survey.  Those comments were greatly appreciated!  We have all experienced a word of encouragement at a time when we needed it most.  It is such a blessing.   “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” I Thessalonians 5:11   Thank you for your commitment to Christian education and to NCA!
