At the beginning of April of 2015, launching a new Christian school to serve Cochise County was not even on the horizon. With the new school year rapidly approaching, the idea seemed virtually impossible. Yet, as the month wore on, the thought of developing the new school metamorphosed from a dream into a reality. Within just a couple of weeks, seventeen children were enrolled – an amazing feat for a school that existed only on paper at the time. If the school had accepted kindergarten and first graders, the enrollment would have been close to thirty.
Nonetheless, it was a series of miracles that brought the project to fruition. Scholarship funds from third-party organizations - normally not available so late in the season - suddenly appeared making it possible for virtually every student to receive some form of scholarship. Many received full scholarships - their entire tuition paid. Three churches in the area that had hardly communicated with each other in the past came together in unity for the first time to help develop and launch the new school. A school board was formed to provide the necessary leadership to move the project forward. Individual church members from the Bisbee SDA Church purchased land adjacent to the church for the new building. Volunteers stepped forward. Equipment, books, and supplies were donated. Funds were pledged by church members to help defray the cost of any unpaid tuition and to help support the ongoing project. Then, the most remarkable event of all occurred - the same church members who purchased the land for the school committed funds for a new building! Now, the nearly one million dollar effort is expected to be completed before the beginning of the school's second year in operation. Classes are currently being held in temporary facilities. There is no doubt that the Holy Spirit has led this effort!
