Become a Partner in the Ministry of Portland Christian School.
Portland Avenue Church of Christ founded Portland Christian School in 1924 upon the truth that “the fear of the Lord is the chief part of wisdom.” Today Portland Christian School continues to present academic learning in the light of the reality of the Word of God.
Begun as a work of faith and a labor of love, the school was supported by free-will offerings alone until 1985. So the mission of the school could continue, a tuition policy was adopted for the 1985-86 school year and remains in effect today. However, even with the tuition plan, more than half the cost of educating students comes from support of churches and individuals interested in partnering with the talented staff, teachers, and administrators who serve in this ministry.
Portland Christian School has chosen to serve every student, with few exceptions, who applies for admittance whether in the inner city or the outskirts of Louisville. This is the choice PCS has made in determining the best way to serve and those God sends to PCS. By reason of location, PCS is one of the few Christian schools that continues to serve the inner city while also expanding to serve the eastern Jefferson County community as well.
Portland Christian’s student body is made up of students from all geographic areas and different Christian denominations. PCS does require faithful service and attendance in the family’s home church. Portland’s curriculum includes a Bible class every day, either in the classroom setting or as a chapel program. The core values set by the school board stress this as partner to the academic growth of our students.
The partners who share in the ministry of Portland Christian School are vast and varied. They come from 85 years of alumni and friends who love and believe in God’s ministry at PCS. Gifts from these partners vary from ten dollars a month to tens of thousands of dollars per year. The faithfulness of the school’s donors has sustained the school since 1924. From 2004 through 2008 these restricted and non-restricted gifts have averaged $560500. This figure includes estates left to PCS by alumni and friends.
The strategic plan set by the Portland Christian School Board offers guidelines for the school’s growth both in facilities and in the number of students able to receive a Christian education. PCS asks for your prayers. God’s will and blessing is foundational to this and any ministry. We ask you to become a working partner to make this school your own. Portland Christian School also needs your gifts because our needs are many and the costs are high. In comparison, the loss of a child’s soul because he has not come to know Jesus Christ, the Author of life, is an eternal consequence for which we will be held accountable if we have not done everything in our power to insure he gets that message.
Pray for the school.
