I received bachelor’s degrees from Trinity Christian College (1995) in Palos Height, IL in Communications and English with a concentration in teaching.

I am working on a doctorate in educational leadership from St. Thomas University in Minneapolis, MN. Read more about Mr. Paul Bootsma >
I am thankful every day that I can teach at Lynden Christian School; God has truly blessed me. I graduated from Calvin College in 1961 and received my Masters in Teaching Science from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. After teaching at Unity Christian High School in Hudsonville, Michigan for eleven years, I moved back to my home town of Lynden to begin teaching at Lynden Christian High School. I teach Senior Biology, and Earth Science. Since 1970, I have worked summers as a Park Ranger at Yellowstone National Park. Read more about Mr. Harlan Kredit >
I grew up across Canada in a Christian environment while spending my summers in Rogers, AR. It was quite the dichotomy; my Canadian/Southern upbringing. I loved it! My parents worked with Campus Crusade for Christ and their work had us traveling across Canada most of my elementary school years. They finally settled in Abbotsford where I graduated from W.J. Mouat High School in 1985. After high school, I attended Trinity Western University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. In 1989 I went to Lutheran Bible Institute and received a certification in Youth Ministries. Read more about Ms. Kim Powell >
I feel so blessed to be part of the staff at Lynden Christian. I began working in the Development Office in 2010 and am able to do the things I love each day; capturing the everyday moments of our school through photographs, creating and designing.
I grew up in Holland, MI and met my husband, Eric, while attending Calvin College. We have 5 children, all whom attend Lynden Christian. We are members of Sonlight Community CRC.
My family came to Lynden Christian Schools from Ferndale as two of my children were making the transition into middle school. Our transition to the LC Family was one directed by the Lord and our experience here has been terrific. After two years, I was welcomed into the Central Office as the Alumni Coordinator and Promotions Assistant. In 2015 I transitioned to the Director of Community Development, a position that challenges and stretches me everyday. My Husband, Rod Stump, is employed with BP as a General Shop Tech.

After graduating from LCS in 1983, I moved to Seattle and attended Business School. I married Derry, my high school sweetheart, in 1985 and we remained in Seattle.
