Volunteering at CHS

The teaching staff of CHS celebrate unity with diversity.  One element critical to the mission of the school is that our teachers have all attended Youth With a Mission’s Discipleship Training School and the School of Evangelism. The goal of this year of training is to lay a foundation of faith.  The mission of YWAM is to know God and make Him known.

The Teachers for the Nations program trains the teachers of CHS with a Christian philosophy of history, government, and education and helps the student apply the Biblical principles of government to his conscience and character, to his habits of scholarship, to his knowledge of God’s Word, and to his understanding of God’s Providential work in his own life.

Testimony of a volunteer teacher

"I have always loved teaching. From my childhood until the present, it has been part of the fabric of my being. Looking back, I can see how God’s providential hand has guided, prepared and trained me.

Education was very important in my family so I studied and got the proper degrees to be able to teach. I combined my Christian faith with the secular approach to teaching. Even with a college education, most of what I used day-to-day came from observing the master teacher God had put into my life.

In the public school system I was often frustrated when it was at odds with my faith. When we moved to Europe, I left the public schools behind and began to teach in a Christian Education setting. There I had more freedom to express godly principles in my lessons. I remember asking God to reveal His principles to me.

God answered my prayers in so many ways. First, He led us to a special school where every subject was based on principles in the word of God. It was there that my secular ideas about education were challenged. I saw how mixing the secular and sacred brought confusion. God began retraining my thinking about education.

The journey has been long and I am still learning. At Christian Heritage School I have the freedom to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in and through my lessons. Instead of a “one-size-fits-all” lesson, God has helped me see that my students are unique individuals that learn differently. It is a challenge to meet their individual needs but almost every day God pours His creative ideas into my heart and brings teaching resources into my hands. When I put Him first He promises to add all the things my students and I need. (Matthew 6:33) These days I feel a lot like Eric Liddell in the movie “Chariots of Fire.” He said that God had made him fast and when he ran he felt God’s pleasure. I know how it feels to have the joy of teaching and when I teach, I feel His pleasure."
