While Fresno Christian Schools’ mission stands firm, Superintendent Jeremy Brown reiterated how God has called the FCS generation to be world changers during his Convocation message, Aug. 9.
With a standing room only Peoples Church auditorium crowd, Superintendent Brown challenged FCS students, teachers, staff, parents and community members to accept the responsibility of honoring and treating each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.
The FCS community focus continues to follow the Caleb Code (Seek truth, speak life, serve others) and Brown encouraged listeners with the 2017-18 theme verse from Romans 12: 4-5:
“4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” (NIV)
He inspired the audience to strengthen and prioritize relationships with one another in order, first in Christ and then as community members. And while tension may occur, this commitment creates a near unbreakable bond much like a square knot.
Superintendent Brown emphasized a square knot’s 4,000 year-old purpose: to tie two ends together. The square knot’s power is nearly unmatched as long as both ropes are in tension with one another toward a common goal. The knot fails when one side releases tension, no longer in community or without a unifying purpose.
Administration, teachers and staff are committed to equipping young people for life and service for Jesus Christ through biblical foundations, Christ-like character development, and academic preparation in partnership with the home and local church.
As the school year progresses, Brown asked the Fresno Christian Schools community to work in harmony with one another in word and action, perfectly unified in mind and thought, even as brothers and sisters in Christ (I Corinthians 1:10).
May the vision to support young world changers continue and include an accountability commitment to do so in an attitude of servant-hood, while respecting the opinions of those who are bound together.
