Work at Providence
Thank you for your interest in becoming part of the teaching and ministry team of Providence Christian School, a ministry of First Presbyterian Church. PCS teachers and coaches are gifted and talented individuals possessing a personal relationship with the Lord with a strong desire to impact young people in their subject or co-curricular area. These individuals are Christian role models that demonstrate a love for the Lord, a love for children, and a love for teaching.
Our prayer is that every student will be positively impacted by each of our teachers as we strive to build within each child a life-long love for learning within the context of teaching from a perspective of a Christian worldview. It is our belief that teachers serve as role models--both inside and outside the classroom--to their students, and therefore should integrate biblical truth into their teaching and personal example. (Romans 10:9-10, 1 Timothy 4:12, Luke 6:40)
Gaining an understanding of our vision for this classical and Christian education model is an essential part of our hiring process. We therefore ask interested educators to read our information booklet and Douglas Wilson's book The Case for Classical Christian Education. The information booklets are available at the school, and the book is available at either the school, First Presbyterian Church, or Amazon.com. We recommend waiting to complete the application until after reading both resources.
After your application has been received and reviewed, the personnel committee will contact you if an interview is desired. Before an applicant is hired, he or she must be interviewed by the personnel committee. We look forward to hearing from you and welcome your prayers. If you have any questions about the school or the application process, feel free to call or stop by the school office at any time.
