M.Ed. & M.Th. – Azusa Pacific University & Fuller Seminary
Mr. West comes into Education as a second career from 15 years in full time ministry. He has worked mainly in Youth Ministry but had some time as a Lead Pastor, in Family Ministry and overseas Missions to Uganda. He has been married for 16 years to his wonderful wife Aurielle and has two children; Elijah and Naomi who attend CCS.
Mr. West has a passion for holistic education. Education that includes cognitive development, character development, relational wisdom and spiritual maturity. The fact that he gets to do all of those here at Crossroads High School is amazing. As an educator, his passion for education is not just to teach but also to learn from his Learners.
What does a God-first school mean to him? A God-first school means simply being intentional to put God-first. It’s realized best through a group of people committed to doing what Jesus said to do. A God-first school is committed to seeing Learners as people, not simply a potential score on a standards test and developing them holistically. A God-first school seeks to excel in all areas but remains humble and dedicated to loving our neighbors.
