Delmarva Christian Schools, committed to providing excellent Christian education, is delighted to announce the resounding success of the Stronger Together campaign's kickoff event held on October 12, 2023. The gathering marked the official launch of a transformative vision—a Pre-K to Grade 12 one campus model in Georgetown, Delaware, designed to unify two campuses into a single location.
The October 12 banquet was a momentous occasion for the Delmarva Christian Schools community and its dedicated supporters. At the heart of the evening was a vision, one that celebrates unity and cultivates growth while deepening the school's impact on the Delmarva community. The event brought together 320 guests and garnered support from 36 generous sponsors. In recognition of the collective dedication to Christian education and the school's mission, Delmarva Christian Schools extends heartfelt gratitude to all who contributed to the banquet's resounding success.
The central theme of the evening was unity— which underscored the idea that uniting as one community fortifies Delmarva Christian Schools and amplifies its ability to advance its mission to prepare students spiritually, academically, and physically to know and do God’s will in their lives.
“It has been an absolute honor to see God’s faithfulness to Delmarva Christian through the planning and fundraising efforts of this campaign. To raise more than $20 million dollars in a years time is truly a miracle,” Justin Savini, Director of Advancement, “This project is the result of incredible faith and obedience for the purpose of impacting students for generations to come. We cannot wait to see how God uses this One Campus model to fulfill the mission and vision of DCS. God’s fingerprints are all over this Delmarva Christian story and we are so grateful to everyone in the community past and present who are helping us provide excellent Christian education."
As the Stronger Together campaign progresses, the community's support and involvement are integral to its success. Having already raised over $20 million of its $30 million goal, the campaign includes a $5 million dollar match challenge and ambitious building plans. These plans encompass the construction of a new Middle & High School, the addition of a Middle School gym, an Early Learning Center, and an auditorium, totaling 90,000 square feet dedicated to serving students from PreK-12. This endeavor signifies not only unity but also paves the way for future growth, ensuring an impact on the Delmarva community through excellence in Christian education.
Matt Kwiatkowski, Head of Schools at Delmarva Christian, reflects on the project: "We at DCS have been so incredibly blessed by Jesus! As we focus on this building project, it has become obvious that we are to hold-fast to the past, to be present in the current, and continue building for the future. Jesus has shown His providential and sovereign nature through special milestones in our first 20 years, and so, we hold onto them as rocks of remembrance of who He is and what He can do. We, along with our many community members, are simply seeking to be good stewards of what He has given us so that these next generations can share Jesus' truth in love, no matter their next steps post graduation."
Delmarva Christian Schools remains dedicated to its mission, preparing students spiritually, academically, and physically to know and do God’s will in their lives. As a beacon of Christian values and a provider of excellent Christian education, the school is poised to make an even greater impact on the Delmarva community with the successful launch of the Stronger Together campaign.
