Spenser Deardorff, Middle and high school bible

I was born in Redding, California in 1993. My parents taught me about Christ and His Word all through my childhood and I was raised in Grace Baptist Church of Redding. I was led to Christ by my dad when I was four years old and at the age of eight I was baptized. I attended Redding Christian School all the way until my graduation from high school in 2011. 

I had been seeking God's direction in where to attend college. In high school, I began looking into the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. After going through the lengthy application process, God shut the door on that opportunity. I began attending Shasta Community College as an Engineering major, but it was here that God reawakened a love for history and theatre.

He led me to California Baptist University in Riverside, California. There, I began studying for my Bachelor's in History and Theatre Arts in the fall of 2013. I graduated in April 2016 with both degrees and was hired by Liberty Christian Schools that summer to teach middle school and high school Bible classes.

 

Holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain.
— Philippians 2:16
