Miss Christine Jones

Kindergarten and 1st Grade Teacher

Education:
MA in Elementary Education, Greenville Univeristy
BA in Business Management, Cedarville University 

"My desire is to serve, love, encourage, mold, and equip children in their whole total development of understanding the Bible and how to use the Word as a tool to glorify God in whatever avenue the Lord calls them (Colossians 3:17). I believe that it's important to give the young children a biblically firm foundation and teach them how to rely on the Lord through prayer (Philippians 4:6). It is a privilege that God has called me to teach at Twelve Stones Christian Academy where I can instill the love of learning, share with the children the joys of serving Jesus (Psalm 100) and how to biblically defend their faith."

 "As a Christian educator, I desire to show my students Christ and His truth and love in all that I do and teach.  I want my students to realize that the process of learning cannot only be fun, but that it can also provide opportunities to grow closer to the Lord.  I count it a great privilege to be an educator of children and to have the opportunity to have such a significant impact on their lives.  My greatest desire is to impact individuals for Christ so that they can then impact the world around them."

"Learning is a gift from God. We were created in His image with abilities to learn so many things. As Christians, we should strive to know more about God through the Bible. I consider it a great responsibility to teach in a way that brings glory to God and leads others to a closer relationship with Him."

"Our ability to think, to reason, and to compute with logic testifies to the fact that we are unique creatures made in the image of the all-knowing God who loves order and beauty. In every area of study we should recognize that knowledge comes from the Lord (Proverbs 2:6) and that He is not the author of confusion, but of peace (1 Corinthians 14:33)."

"As an educator, I am committed to excellence and to being passionately Christ-centered in everything I do.

Mrs. Renee Hodge

Interim Administrator

Education:
BSN, Bob Jones Univeristy

Renee was instrumental in bringing together the individuals who set in motion what is now Twelve Stones Christian Academy and she also contributed to the launch as project manager. She has been intricately involved in the day to day operations of the school and has taken on the responsibilities of Interim Administrator. 

"Leaving a godly legacy is arguably the most important thing a parent can do for their children. This is what has motivated me to help bring TSCA to a reality - not only for my children, but for all the parents out there looking for a gospel-centered, biblical worldview education with academic excellence which seeks to equip our children with the full armor of God. Only then will they be ready to defend their faith and be great witnesses for the Lord in today's increasingly secular culture!"
