We officially began CSM on August 1st, 2017, but we have actually been fighting the good fight for our entire lives. We love children and we love the Christian schools where those children are nurtured and fed. Simon is the founder, under God, of CSM. His testimony is this: “I have four children of my own and I want a great education for them. Almost as much, I want a great education to be there for every Christian family like mine. I get quite depressed when I see Christian schools, full of terrific people and supporters struggle and even go out of business. There have been far too many. I was working at ISM for 14 years and saw this happen first-hand. I saw it happen in the experience of my own children. God finally made me stop what I was doing and take this on as my life mission in founding CSM in 2017. I thought I was at the end part of my career but God has convicted me that this is just the beginning of a new era where I am called to lead and follow in service to children in our Christian schools.”
