Dear CrossPointe Families,
There is power in a story. We live and breathe because of the magnificent, most compelling story of all time; the story of our one true God who has loved and continues to love in a big and powerful way. This is the story we can choose to live out every day. It is not a fable or fairytale. God’s story in us is real.
We can tell stories every single day about God working in us, through us, for us, and with us. Our stories can reflect how we see the past and how we envision the future. They are a vital part of who we are as individuals, family, friends, community, and even school. How we tell our story can be very impactful in both positive and negative ways. Stories of hope during challenging times, of love demonstrated with genuine compassion and kindness, and of victories through dedicated discipline are a few of the ways we convey a message of who we are and whose we are.
CrossPointe has a huge storytelling event happening on March 30th– our Project the Vision dinner. Please pray that God will use this event to create not a monologue but a dialogue that invites others into the partnership of our vision and purpose for education intended to empower parents in their responsibility to raise up their children to know and love God. We want others to become partners in educating the heart and mind of children and youth with excellence, preparing them to influence the world for Christ.
Dr. John Turner, Jr. will be telling the UMSI story at the Project the Vision dinner. He is a gifted orator who currently serves as a UMSI consultant in the Family Ministry component. John began his experience with the University-Model® when he and his wife, Roxie, enrolled the first two of their five children (previously home schooled) in Grace Preparatory Academy (Arlington, Texas), on the first day of the school’s inception in 1993. Since then, four of their five graduated from Grace Prep and the fifth graduated by way of the Turners’ home school. From 1998 until 2004, Dr. Turner served as Grace Prep’s first full-time Dean of Character Development. During that time, he was commissioned to write Character-Driven College Preparation to provide a quick overview of the University-Model®.
There are several spots available for guests who are interested in learning more about CrossPointe. Help us share the CrossPointe story by giving the office contact information of those you know who are interested and of your preacher/pastor, youth minister, or elders at your church who are in a position to retell our story to those with whom they come in contact.
What is the purpose of God’s story in us? …that the next generation might know. (Ps. 78:7-6). God’s story in us is powerful!
