School Administrator - Pastor Janet Hodson
Pastor Janet Hodson has been the head administrator at Good Shepherd Christian Academy since April 2008. No stranger to education, Janet has taught Bible classes at Columbus Christian School to grades 6-12, and has worked as a Kindergarten and preschool assistant. Her passion to provide a strong Christian education started with her own children (now grown) whom she was blessed to homeschool. Janet graduated from Church Leadership Institute in February of 2008, with a diploma in Pastoral Studies. She received her Certificate of License in Indiana in February of 2010. In addition, Janet has received training from The Fountain School of Spiritual Ministry and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Serving is a passion for Janet, and she has been very active in the community, including the Emmaus community and Residents Encountering Christ. She has also served as a youth leader, Bible study leader, Wednesday night children’s program director, Sunday school teacher, cheerleading coach, Youth Camp dean and counselor, and spiritual counselor, among others. In her years at GSCA, Janet has provided both spiritual and administrative guidance to staff, students, and families, a calling that brings her much joy and fulfillment.
GSCA desires for students to grow "in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man" ( Luke 2:52) as Jesus did. This implies we must partner with the home and church to train students to guard their hearts from sin and instead model through their speech, actions, and attitudes a godly lifestyle. The Administration of GSCA believes that the full potential of academic excellence can be accomplished only where faculty leadership is strong, discipline is firm but fair, and moral/spiritual values are emphasized within a loving, caring Christian atmosphere. We at GSCA desire to train students to manifest the following Biblical principles in their lives, both inside the classroom and out : Honesty, Order, Respect, Joyful Spirit, Obedience, Responsibility, and Self-Control.
God has blessed us with an outstanding team of teachers who are dynamic and creative communicators! He has also blessed us with precious young lambs whom He entrusts to us to develop into godly leaders who are academically strong. We would love for you to come check us out!
