Susan feels blessed to be serving again in a capacity that has been her most fulfilling work. Her 30+ years working in Christian school and church ministries have been central in her life. She was raised in the home of Pentecostal pastors. It was after attending Western Apostolic Bible College in Stockton, CA that she was blessed with the opportunity to serve in new and meaningful ways at Calvary Christian Center and Academy in El Sobrante, CA. After assuming the gamut of roles in both school and church ministries, Susan found her calling as the administrator of the k-12 school program. In Susan’s tenure as school administrator of Calvary Christian Academy, the school soared to new academic and faith-based heights. She led the successful effort to gain dual accreditation by both the Association for Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). She worked beside an inspirational pastoral staff to establish comprehensive and strategic efforts for school marketing and outreach. CCA graduates became competitive college applicants. Eventually, the school boasted a 96% college admission/attendance rate which was validation of the important work she and the staff she had assembled were doing as Christian educators. After her family moved to Fairfield, they became active members at Liberty Church where they felt immediate fellowship among congregants. Susan couldn’t feel more honored and thrilled to return to her life’s work in a new community.
