Leadership

We’re all called to be leaders. Whether in a position at work, in family, church, or elsewhere, every believer is called to lead others to Christ. Jesus Christ Himself is our example of the ultimate and perfect leader. Together let’s follow Christ’s example and be a good example for others to follow.
 
” And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28

Principal- Jerry DeGroot

For more than 64 years Unity Christian has been following its mission of “Developing followers of Christ, to be leaders”, through Faith, Excellence, and Service. We invite you and your family to be a part of this legacy.

Director of Curriculum- Bill Postma

With God’s blessings, we seek to have students prepared to follow their vocation, their calling. “The vocation God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet”- Frederick Beuchner. May God bless us in this effort.

Dean of Students- Scott Soodsma

Students are encouraged to live out a life of service by volunteering and dedicating themselves to assist others and meeting the many needs in our local and broader community.

Director of Development- Jack Lutke

Through building relationships our community is able to leave a legacy that will carry on for generations to come, by continuing the mission of Unity Christian. We have been blessed with strong financial support from the Christian Community for over 60 years. These resources help provide an excellent education, preparing students to live for Christ as they impact our world.

Athletic Director- Jeff Engbers

Athletics is a platform for our coaches to teach and mentor our student-athletes. Through sports, students are able to express who they are, what they believe, and play for Christ. We ask that you help us mentor them by supporting them with positive encouragement and good sportsmanship.
