Doris Todd Christian Academy Annual Giving 2016-2017

60th Anniversary Edition


nineteen hundred fifty-six

‘ GODS FAIT For Over

Annual Giving Report Dear DTCA Families, Friends, and Alumni: 2016-17 was a memorable time of celebrating our 60th anniversary. We began the celebration with a worship service in the auditorium. Alumnus Senator Gil Keith-Agaran presented a congratulatory recognition from the Senate of the State of Hawaii, and alumnus Mike Molina brought congratulations from Mayor Alan Arakawa. There were tears in the eyes of many people as our band played and students sang, Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing. Power and majesty, praise to the King. Mountains bow down and the seas will roar at the sound of Your name...

That evening alumni, former staff, and friends of the school celebrated with a banquet at the Nahele Banquet Room. Bright and early Saturday morning, the School hosted its first North Shore Run to raise money for our scholarship fund. An Open House that afternoon with a picnic the next day were wonderful opportunities to “talk story” with alumni, former staff, and friends. We are grateful to God for using our small school to spread the gospel to so many people over the last 60 years. Just recently one of our chapel speakers told us of the impact Mary, his youth leader, had on his life. Mary attended our school from PS-8th grade. Our high school moved to the old Valley Isle Fellowship church building in Wailuku during the summer. The church recently moved into a brand new building and very graciously offered the use of their old building. Wailuku is centrally located on the island and more accessible to a wide range of students. We will have lots of room to grow in this building. Another milestone for DTCA was reaccreditation with Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and accreditation with the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC). We are grateful that God continues to provide financially so that we may continue to offer a distinctively Christian education for our 180 students in the 2017-18 school year. Our Annual Fund Drive is our most important fundraiser of the school year. We rely on tuition income and fees to keep our doors open, but these sources are not enough. We also need generous donations from the DTCA community in Hawaii and on the mainland to continue offering an affordable Christian education on the island of Maui. Our goal is to reach $50,000 this year. Our status will be posted regularly on Facebook and our website (www.doristoddchristian.org). Donations go to general operation expenses, teacher and staff salaries, taking care of our campus, and other specific projects such as moving the high school, more computers/ iPads, and a new playground structure. Please come alongside and help us continue our ministry of giving children a Christ-centered, loving, nurturing, and safe learning environment. ALL GIFTS large or small are an INVESTMENT in the future of our children, our community, our island and our world. Your contribution will make a difference in shaping a child’s life for eternity! Mahalo nui loa for your support,

1955 WAILUKU BAPTIST PRESCHOOL

9

In April of 1954, Edward and Doris Todd moved to Maui, Hawaii after serving six years as missionaries in the Philippines. In 1955, Doris Todd began driving their daughter, Barbara, to Wailuku Baptist Preschool. The school asked Doris to become a teacher there, and since the Todd’s were living in Haiku, they began carpooling with other families in Paia. The parents in Paia suggested that she begin her own Preschool on the North Shore instead of driving across the island. So, in 1956, Doris Todd began a nursery with 4 children. God blessed that nursery, which became Paia Baptist School, and is currently Doris Todd Christian Academy.

2017 MAUI CHRISTIAN ACADEMY

After much prayer, in 2014, Doris Todd Christian Academy began Maui Christian Academy, offering grades 9-12 to give a much needed Christian education to the youth on the island. Chet and Kathy Crain moved back to Maui to run the high school. Upon moving back, the Crains began attending Valley Isle Fellowship, formerly Wailuku Baptist Preschool. Pastor Steve Kaneshiro approached Chet in the spring of 2015 to offer their old church building to MCA once the new church sanctuary they were building was completed. MCA began classes this fall in the building where Doris first began teaching on Maui in 1955.
