Training up children in the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 22:6)


Hiring Announcement

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

The board of Providence Christian School is pleased to announce that it has offered Mr. Bert Mourits a full time teaching position starting in August of this year.

We are thankful that we have found Mr. Mourits willing to accept this appointment and we are looking forward to his active contributions to the PCS school community.

Mr. Mourits currently works at Calvin Christian School in Coalhurst. He grew up in the Netherlands and had his training and first years of teaching experience there. At PCS he will be responsible for many of the classes that Ms. Hummel has been teaching during the past few years, most significantly all of the Social Studies classes in Junior and Senior High School.

In connection with Mr. Mourits’ hiring, some teachers will be switching responsibilities. Ms. Hummel will take on teaching duties with the grade 5/6 classes. For financial reasons these grades will not be completely split, as we had hoped. Ms. VanHerk will take responsibility for the grade 3 class following Mrs. VanDriesten’s maternity leave.

We are confident that Mr. Mourits will be a good fit for the PCS community, and that his training and experience will give him a very good opportunity of success in our High School.

We are thankful to our Faithful Father that He always provides at His time and in His ways. We confidently trust that Mr. Mourits’ hiring for the High School, and the grade responsibility changes at the Elementary School, will be a blessing for our students and teachers.

Board Chairman
