Meet Jared Frantz

October 20, 2023
By Oakland Christian School

Join us in welcoming Jarred Frantz, our new 9th and 10th grade Bible teacher, to Oakland Christian School!

Jarred comes to us with a passion for deepening our students' connection with God. He's leading the way for our 9th graders through "The New City Catechism," a series of thought-provoking questions that will help students grow closer to God and understand their faith on a deeper level. 

For our 10th graders, Jarred is guiding them through "The Triumph of Christ," a comprehensive study of the entire Bible with a focus on the book of Acts and Paul's epistles. 

Jarred's favorite Bible verse, John 3:30, reflects his dedication to serving God with humility: "He must become greater; I must become less." 

Let's give Jarred Frantz a warm Oakland Christian School welcome and support him as he helps our students grow in their understanding of the Lord, the scripture, and the world around them It's going to be an incredible year of growth and discovery!

Join us in welcoming Emily Bourque to Oakland Christian School!

Emily Bourque has joined us as the 6th-grade Bible Teacher. Emily's enthusiasm for teaching is truly inspiring! She is most excited to watch our 6th graders grow in their love for Jesus this year. 

Her favorite Bible verses, Ecclesiastes 3:1-4, remind us of the beauty of God's timing:
1     There is a time for everything,
   and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2     a time to be born and a time to die,
   a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3     a time to kill and a time to heal,
   a time to tear down and a time to build,
4     a time to weep and a time to laugh,
   a time to mourn and a time to dance,

Let's give Emily a warm Oakland Christian School welcome and support her in her mission to guide our 6th graders this year. We're excited to see the incredible impact she'll have on their lives!
