Neighborhoods to Nations
Vision for 2023

A vision for Houston Christian that lifts Christian education from the ordinary, reconnects with God’s greater purpose, prepares within students a foundation for leadership, and challenges students to develop their life-calling. 

Our Vision for 2023 - HC's 25th Anniversary
Neighborhoods to Nations is a comprehensive, multiyear plan that casts a vision of extraordinaory Christian education for Houston Christian High School. It provides the blueprint to prepare students with a foundation for leadership, challenges them to develop a life-calling, and sets them on a path to impact the world for Christ. The plan sets a course for Houston Christian through 2023, our school's 25th anniversary.

The Neighborhoods to Nations plan includes four major initiatives under which the growth of Houston Christian and its mission are supported and enhanced.

"God's plan for all of us is infinitely bigger than we have ever dreamed. We have limited vision, and we look at our own resources and plan accordingly. Do not determine what God wants to do in your life by what you can see. Let him decide that."

From This Day with the Master by Dr. Dennis Kinlaw

 

"From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth, and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live."
