From the ground up
Posted on December 1, 2016
There’s a shovel the Trinity office, the blade of which glimmers faintly of gold paint despite some wear and age. The tool tells the story of a vision, a group of people who rallied ’round it, and of breaking ground. The vision was birthed in prayer, but for it to come to fruition, faith, hard work, and tenacity were needed. The result of those combined efforts is Trinity Christian School and our beautiful facility perched upon this West Virginia hill.
Building is incremental. There are no shortcuts. Just like constructing a school, educational and spiritual growth begin from the ground up. What a privilege it is for each of us to work alongside families, their churches, and our fellow educators to see each child grow into the young man or woman God has created them to be.
Over the summer, a former school board member dropped off this shovel that was used in a groundbreaking ceremony. We’re so thankful for all who were a part of the laying the foundation for Trinity Christian School.
Warrior Nation, our new student section, is building school spirit! They have great theme nights planned for basketball season. Stay tuned!

Can you guess who this character represents? This student created Baby Jesus as a part of a nativity that the third-grade class is creating.
