Over a seven-month period, 30+ members of the ECS community prayed over, processed, and prepared a plan to guide ECS through the next season of growth.
The Strategic Plan includes four specific initiatives, each with tactical action steps that sub-committees will be focusing on to propel ECS forward over the next 5 years as we SOAR TO NEW HEIGHTS.
As we look to the journey God is laying ahead for Evansville Christian School, it is important to appreciate how God has been writing HIStory through ECS since 1975.
