Evergreen strategy: Strategic planning and funding for long-term, ongoing maintenance are a priority to ensure Nanaimo Christian School’s sustainability and impact in the future.
"During the first phase of construction, people were praying daily that God would lead us. I saw it again when we went to start Phase 2 ... Every time NCS has come as a community in prayer, God has answered. Always. In every situation.”
