A Message from NWCS Head of Schools


Dear Families and Friends of Northwest Christian Schools,

What a joy to be part of this community! We are blessed with a strong team, beautiful facilities, and the wisdom and hope of our Heavenly Father.

Galatians 6:9 exhorts us to not become weary in well-doing. However, the best part is the promise that comes next, stating we will reap a harvest if we don’t give up.

Since 1949, this community has pursued the cause of Christian education and there is no slowing down now. The Lord has a great harvest ahead for past, present, and future students and families of Northwest Christian. How good and how pleasant it will be as we lock arms in unity to advance the cause of Christ.

The mission and purpose of NWCS remains steadfast. We are an educational community where Christ is the center of all we do, making a gospel centered education possible every day, for every student.

I look forward to embarking on new things together as we move forward in faith and strength.

With gratitude,

Roger Gerstenberger
Head of Schools
