The Mission of Tri-State Christian School is to educate students from a biblical worldview for excellence in lifelong learning and Christ-like character. We believe that TSCS can best fulfill its mission and minister to the greatest number of students if relocated in Iowa.
American culture is changing, and these changes have brought increasing hostility to the name of Jesus and His Word. This hostility can clearly be seen in the public sector, which makes it increasingly difficult for Christian parents to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. With such a hostile secular environment, the need for Christian schools to educate children from a biblical worldview perspective has never been greater. Thankfully, the Lord has provided a Christian school in the Tri-State area.
Tri-State Christian School opened its doors for 25 students in 1992, thanks to the visionary leadership of its founders and their passion for Christian education. During the first three years, TSCS rented classroom space for the grade school from Galena Bible Church while adding junior high grades. In 1995 TSCS moved into our existing building in Galena and began adding high school grades one year at a time until 2000, when we held our first high-school graduation.
Almost four years ago, the Tri-State Board reached a momentous decision: the Lord was leading them to relocate the school to Dubuque, Iowa. The TSCS Board has been committed to waiting on the Lord's timing and leading; while they have explored many options during the last three years, it is only in the last few months that we have seen Him opening doors on our behalf.
First, the Lord has provided a buyer for our Galena property with a closing scheduled for August 31. In addition, Tri-State recently purchased the property owned by Asbury Community Chapel on 5205 Saratoga Road in Asbury. The property consists of two acres and a 7,200 sf building. Our plan is to remodel the existing structure and add a 20,000 square foot building, which will contain classrooms and a small gym.
