Mrs. Thompson 34 yrs. of ministry

Hello. My name is Denise Thompson.  I have the wonderful privilege of being the upper elementary math teacher (4th-6th grades) as well as teaching Bible and Reading to our amazing 4th graders.

I grew up in a strong Christian home where my parents were very godly people who taught me Biblical values.  They lived out God’s Word before me and were very faithful, active, serving members of our church.

I had the privilege of attending a Christian high school.  It was during my freshman year that the Lord began to deal with me and show me that I needed to be saved.  One day after my Bible class, my Bible teacher led me to Christ.  My life totally changed.  As I began to grow in Christ, the Lord began to tug at my heart giving me a desire to serve Him in full time Christian ministry.  This calling was confirmed in my heart when I was in college.  Upon my graduation from Bob Jones University, I began working as the church secretary at my church.  Shortly thereafter, I met my amazing husband, Dennis, on a blind date.   We have been married for almost 32 wonderful years.  We have served side by side in full time ministry for most of those years.  We love serving the Lord together.  

I have served in full time ministry for 34 years.  The Lord has given me the opportunity to serve in so many areas including being a pastor’s wife, pastor’s secretary, Assistant Director of a women’s homeless shelter, Christian school office manager, accounting, Assistant administrator and Head Administrator of Christian Schools, and most currently as a teacher at Tri-City Christian School for the past 16 years.  I count it a very high calling to be a teacher, and I am so thankful that the Lord has allowed me to serve in Christian school ministry for the past 26 years serving four Christian schools.

I am so thankful to have the opportunity to instill Christian principles and values into the lives of my students every day.  Whether I am teaching, math, reading, or Bible, God prompts my heart to integrate His Word into every aspect of our school day.  It is my prayer that all of my students will come to know the Lord and follow His plan for their lives.  

I believe, as Christian educators, we should always be striving to make a difference for the Kingdom!  “Therefore my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”  I Cor. 15:58
