The Education Advisory Committee exists to hire the School Director, create policy, and obtain additional funding for Harvest Christian School.As a Committee, we recognize that we have an important responsibility to be Christ–centered in our leadership. We must be servant leaders and we must ensure that our leadership is built around a partnership with our students, families, churches, and staff, while being a positive influence in the community. We will continually emphasize these things to be effective in our service to the Lord and Harvest Christian Academy.
