From Board Chair Sharon Yoder:
On behalf of the Bethany Christian Schools Board I am pleased to announce the appointment of Tim Lehman to the position of Head of School beginning July 1, 2015. Tim is no stranger to Bethany Christian, having served in a range of positions from 2002 to 2014 as teacher, coach and assistant principal. As a previous member of Allan Dueck’s leadership team, Tim brings proven administrative skills and leadership capabilities.
Tim’s breadth of educational experience, proven excellence in teaching, knowledge of Bethany Christian Schools and affirming rapport with his peers will allow him to step into this role informed and prepared to offer excellent leadership from the outset. Tim understands Bethany’s unique and dynamic learning environment, and supports the vision for the future recently articulated as part of our $5.6M Campaign for Sustainability.
Finally, Tim understands that the integration of faith and learning encourages critical thinking, creativity and innovation. He recognizes the inherent dignity and uniqueness of each individual and believes that students need to be empowered to learn while being encouraged to live out their faith in tangible ways. Tim’s appointment strongly supports Bethany Christian Schools' commitment to equip students for Christian discipleship in the church and around the world.
I hope you will join me in congratulating Tim and supporting him in his new role.
