Christmas Stars Challenge Announced

The Fall 2013 SOAR!, published just a few weeks ago, noted that one of our blessings at DPCA  this year has been a significant increase in enrollment. The article went on to note that rising enrollment this year has also resulted in a rising need for funding for our tuition assistance program, DPCA's need-based financial aid program for families who need help with tuition.

Now one of our donors, who prefers to remain anonymous, has stepped forward to help with that need by issuing a challenge grant.  Gifts to the Tuition Assistance Fund during the month of December will be matched dollar for dollar up to $30,000!  This means that we have the potential to raise $60,000 for our financial aid program this month!  We are grateful for the challenge, grateful for this donor's generosity, and excited to see how the Lord and His people will respond!

The name Christmas Stars Challenge celebrates the season, and our students - who are both the "stars" of DPCA, and the generation that we work with who we hope and pray will be "children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life..."  (Philippians 2:15-16 NIV)  What a privilege we have to be part of a school where we can help the children of God grow in their faith and their walk with the Lord each day!

Thanks for considering being part of the effort to reach our $60,000 December goal, and thank you for your prayers for a successful Christmas Stars Challenge!
