click poster to view

Delaware County Christian School welcomes Andy Crouch, Executive Editor of Christianity Today, to the school’s first of several Renewing the Mind Seminars for the 2014-15 school year on Friday, November 14th at 7:30 pm at The DeMoss Center for Worship and the Arts located on the school’s Upper Campus at 462 Malin Road, Newtown Square, PA.

Also the author of Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power AND Culture Making: Recovering our Creative Calling, Mr. Crouch will be giving a compelling presentation entitled “Christianity and Culture.”

Perhaps no word is more used and less understood in our day than the word “culture.” Anthropologists and sociologists generally agree that this is one of the most difficult (if not most difficult) words to define in the English lexicon. During his presentation, Andy will not only help attendees define “culture,” but will also move to show seminar participants why the frequent use of the phrase “cultural engagement” is misguided and will encourage Christians to become culture makers instead.

RSVP for DC's Renewing the Mind SeminarAlthough this event is free of charge, seating is limited. Please RSVP.

For more information, contact Mr. Ron Hoch, Director of Student Life at rhoch@dccs.org.

She is the author of Jew in the Pew, a memoir of her experiences as a Messianic Jew married to a believing non-Jew.

All alumni and parents are invited to attend school chapels throughtout the year.

 New Alumni President

DC is pleased to announce Mr. Joel Schuster ’96 as the President of the DC Alumni Association Board. Joel is a pastor at Marsh Creek Church in Exton. He and his wife, Sarah '96, are recipients of the Dill Alumni Scholarship and have three girls attending DC: Mikayla (6th), Kathryn (4th) and Emma (2nd). Joel attended DC from K-12 and went on to Gordon College earning a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies in 2000. He continued at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary earning a Master of Arts in Religion with a concentration in Next Generation Ministry in 2005. Joel and Sarah were married in 2000, and attribute the seeds of their love to the 96 choir tour. As an alumnus and now a school parent, Joel is struck that in so many ways so much has changed. "Things we remember have developed and grown in a good way, but it's different - the campus that is. What hasn't changed is the value of the staff and that the teachers hold to shepherd not only the academic growth of the children but their heart and spiritual growth as well. We are moved by the fact that the teachers continue to cherish the kids in the same way they invested in and cherished us."

"I accept this role with a sense of great honor and humility and wonderful anticipation of what is possible. DC has given so much to me and my family over the years. As Sara and I reflect on the things in our lives that have really formed us, by God’s grace we look to our families who sacrificed so much, and really, we look at our time at DC as foundational in the formation of our faith and future. My hope is to engage with those that have been impacted by DC in the past. We / I would love to hear how God has worked, what He is doing, and how DC has played a role. It is equally important to connect the legacy of DC’s past to it’s present and future. Many of us have benefitted so much from what has been given to us, and we now sit in a unique place to give back to those who sit in the same seat we once sat. It never ceases to inspire me when I walk back on campus and consider what God continues to do at DC as I look at this new student body experiencing the very same thing that impacted me and my family so deeply. Moreover we consider it a humbling privilege to have our kids be a part of that story, and we have seen so much happen in just the short time that they have been there. Seeing Alumni from the past connecting with and investing with those that will join our ranks now and in the future, I think that is what excites me most. To connect the past to the present future and to see a growing community of those who were impacted by DC reconnected and even passing that gift on to the next generation in their family. I am excited to humbly serve that cause knowing God’s faithful impact spreading the light of His gospel and Kingdom will continue through DC.”
