A Ministry of the Church
New Manna Christian School is a ministry of New Manna Baptist Church and belongs solely to the church. This means that the pastor of the church, Bro. Tony Shirley, is ultimately responsible for the school. This also means that the principal, teachers, and other staff members of the school are, in reality, employees of the church.
Adding Virtue to Knowledge
New Manna Christian School (NMCS) was founded in 1995 as a ministry to the young people of New Manna Baptist Church and the citizens of McDowell and surrounding counties. For over fifteen years, NMCS has served as a place for students to be educated in an environment that is conducive to their Christian growth.
At New Manna, you will find:
New Manna Christian School operates on the philosophy that a Christian school should offer a higher quality of education than any other public or private educational facility. With this mindset, New Manna strives to be the best school in McDowell County.
With weekly chapel services, frequent youth choir trips, and Thursday afternoon soul-winning, New Manna Christian School provides many opportunities for the students' spiritual development.
Knowing that the teacher is the key to the classroom experience, the administration at New Manna Christian School has assembled a group of teachers who love the Lord and their students and who seek to guide their students in living for God.
"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord." Sports at New Manna are seen as an exercise in godliness. The students are encouraged to participate in an athletic program that will teach them how to play, win, and even lose for the glory of the Lord.
