Why S.O.T.®: Going back to our Purpose

What was your original intent when you started a Christian school?

What was your original intent why you chose S.O.T.® to be the system you will use in your schools?

Are you still following that original design or original intent you had before? OR, have things deviated?

  1. A TRULY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.

Many schools carry the name “Christian”, but they are far from being Christian. For many, that word is just a magnet for well-meaning parents who want their children to be taught in the ways of the Lord.

But in reality, they never fully teach nor practice what Christianity is all about to their students.

  1. REACH CHILDREN FOR CHRIST.

            DALE HUDSON. “When you reach a child you change a life, when you reach a parent you change an entire family.”

           D.L. MOODY. “If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God!”

  1. PRIORITIZE CHARACTER-BUILDING.

With the help of God, we have placed a premium on good character. This should be a big part of the overall original intents. That should be one of our greatest designs for truly Christian schools.

“Character is more important than knowledge because it shows you what to do with what you know.”

We cannot dream our students into good character, we must pound it again and again and forge it into the minds and lives of our students.      

  1. BE A LIGHT IN THE COMMUNITY.

            I believe that one big way to be a light in the community is to operate the school as an example of honesty and integrity, especially in school records, finances, and compliance with relevant government agencies.

            JOHN HAGEE. “We are indeed the light of the world – but only if our switch is turned on.”

  1. A QUALITY MINISTRY.

A. STAFF.
B. FACILITIES.

Are we still with our original intents? Are we still consistent with the vision God gave us when we opened our school doors to students? Do we still believe the same way in these motives now?

            You may ask me “WHY S.O.T.®?”

A. S.O.T.® has a well-organized support system.
B. S.O.T.® has a well-oiled administration and staff enhancement system.
C. S.O.T.® has a well-paved avenue for students to discover and develop their talents.
D. S.O.T.® abides with the laws of our country.
E. S.O.T.® can cater to all my original intents.

Let’s all go back to our purpose. Let us not forsake the old but honorable purposes that God placed in our hearts when we envisioned opening a Christian school.
