There will be some staff changes at Campion Academy. We regret to announce that Pastor Esequias Perea will no longer serve as Campion’s chaplain as he steps down from this leadership position.
Esequias and his family will be moving back to Texas. His wife, Anna Perea, will also be deeply missed as the teacher of the Acquainting Agriculture class. Several staff members will continue to work to harvest and sell the produce through the end of the season.
Campion Academy has been blessed by God through Pastor Esequias and his family and we wish them well as they return to Texas.
God continues to provide for us at Campion Academy. We have decided to hire an interim chaplain to allow the administration ample time to conduct a search for a permanent filling of the chaplain's position at Campion Academy. Wendy Eickmann has accepted the role of interim chaplain. She has been a part of our campus community for over 13 years and clearly has a heart for students and for God. She will be assisted by two extraordinary student chaplains, Madi Jordan and Nolan Eickmann.
While it is difficult for us to see the Perea family leave, we know that God will continue to work on our campus, and we remain focused on our commitment to lift up Christ on our campus and in our community (John 12:32). God’s Holy Spirit moved on our campus in a mighty way this past school year with many students committing their lives to Christ and being baptized. We are thankful for our students who have shown deep commitment to their faith and the mission of the church this summer as they served in mission trips, literature evangelism, camps, and especially on our Spark youth evangelism team. With the support of our local Campion church pastors, the Grand Junction Church, Pastor Phil Jones, and Patricia Torres, the Spark team had a very positive and impactful end to their evangelistic series in Grand Junction. Sixteen people have committed their lives to Christ and plan to be baptized as a result of these meetings.
Please pray for God’s guidance for our staff and our students as we prepare to start the new school year.
