A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

As we are fast approaching the end of our priority re-enrollment window, I want to thank everyone who has already informed us of your intent for next year and would like to encourage those who have not yet to please remember to do so by the end of the day on Friday. Our leadership team can begin planning in earnest for the next academic year with this information, and for that, we are truly grateful. As I spent some time reflecting on the past several months, the one thing that has stood out to me the most is that TKA is an exceptional place. Our families, faculty, and we share a common desire to see Christ honored in all we do. As we seek to approach this spring semester, please join with me in praying that the presence of the Lord is here in this place.

In Christ Alone,

Jeremy Sandefur

Save The Date

TKA will be hosting the “Forged Parent Conference” on March 5th in Woody Auditorium. “Forged” will be a morning of biblically-based parenting seminars focused on encouraging parents that are raising students in a post-Christian society. We are blessed to have local ministers from our community coming to share on topics involving discipleship, maneuvering technology in today’s digital society, and student identity in an ever-changing environment. This event is free and will be a great opportunity to link arms with other parents as we focus on what the Bible says about the roles and responsibilities associated with raising children. Join us from 9:00 – 12:00 on Saturday, March 5th for “Forged!”
