Secondary Spanish and Bible Teacher
Favorite verse: For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself. Philippians 3:20-21
Education Background: I received my undergraduate degree from Colorado Mesa University with a BS in Kinesiology - Exercise Science, while competing at the Division 2 level as a starting pitcher. I have completed close to two years of the MDiv program from the Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, CA.
Educational Experience: I was hired in 2022 to teach Secondary Spanish, Old Testament Survey 7, and Middle School PE. For the past 3 years, I have served my church in several teaching capacities including being a youth pastor, leading the young adult bible study, and preaching from the pulpit whenever I am needed.
All About Me: My wife and I have been married since May 2021, and we have a beautiful daughter who keeps us adventurous as she’s entering the toddler age. I have been privileged with being called to shepherd God’s people through pastoring and teaching, and it has truly been one of the greatest treasures the Lord has given me. I played baseball in college so it is still currently one of my favorite hobbies along with preparing bible studies, going to the beach with my wife, and hosting a podcast that encourages believers to delight in Christ before dismissing Him.
Foreign Language Program
Teacher(s): Christopher Ramirez (Spanish), Martha Jeanbart (French)
The HCS Foreign Language Department recognizes that learning about different cultures and languages enables our students to appreciate and better understand the world around them. As students develop their proficiency in languages other than their own, they become better able to communicate with diverse cultures and to fulfill the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Teacher(s): Cord Christensen, Christopher Ramirez, & Joshua Camper
The Hillcrest Christian School Bible department has an extensive biblical studies program. Our students will learn how to apply the Bible in today’s world. Our Bible teachers make the Bible experience relevant, applicable and meaningful for students. Students will gain biblical knowledge & understanding of Biblical figures, historical events, themes of the Old & New Testament and life lessons from the Word of God, especially from the teachings of Jesus Christ. Students will ensure the Word of God goes beyond knowledge as they undertake the spiritual discipline of Bible memorization to allow God's Word to penetrate the heart. Students will also engage in service experiences to bring their knowledge of the Bible into practical everyday life. By the time our students graduate from Hillcrest Christian School they will have a thorough comprehension and understanding of the Old and New Testament of Scripture. Students will also be able to understand what it means to live an abundant life in Jesus Christ as a Christian & learn the spiritual disciplines necessary to live out a healthy and vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.
