Lions Weekly: November 17, 2021


A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

I hope that you are having a wonderful week. This week I had the opportunity to represent TKA at the Tennessee Baptist Convention and am happy to relay that there are a lot of impressive things occurring within Baptist life in the state of Tennessee. TKA is blessed to be an educational entity of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board as we serve those in our community and the world. For those who do not fully understand the TBMB, it serves as an umbrella for Baptist churches throughout our state and supports the following entities: Union University, Carson Newman University, TN Baptist Adult Homes, TN Baptist Children’s Homes, TN Baptist Foundation, and Baptist Hospital (Memphis). As an entity of the TBMB, TKA is blessed to work with a network of churches to meet the needs of our domestic and international students.

This week’s convention has been a chance for us to have new trustees elected, receive funding, and build relationships throughout our state. I am personally thankful for the impact that TKA is having on our state and for the role that the TBMB plays in our ability to do so.

As we enter into this time of thanksgiving, I ask that you join me in expressing gratitude to all those who support the ministry of TKA. I am especially grateful for each and everyone of our families who partner with us daily to develop servant leaders who will change the world for Christ.

In Christ Alone,

Jeremy Sandefur

Giving Tuesday

National Giving Tuesday is a day set aside to support non-profit organizations. The King’s Academy seeks to honor our 142 years of faithful Christian education by asking for support from 142 donors on Giving Tuesday. All gifts will be incredibly beneficial as we seek to develop servant leaders for Christ. Would you consider being 1/142 by partnering with us on November 30? Donations can be made by clicking here or in the school office. Gifts will go towards helping us achieve upgrades in curriculum, facilities and student life on campus. All donations are tax-deductible.

Please consider sharing this opportunity with your family and friends as we work together for our TKA school community.
