OBI, Clear Creek Partnership

It’s not unusual for a student to complete grade school, undergraduate and graduate education in one state, but what if a student could do that with a Christian education?

The Kentucky Baptist Convention allocates just over one-fifth of its Cooperative Program dollars to Christian education in their 2017-2018 budget.

And the drug life brought jail time and court dates – and a judge who insisted he get treatment. Lamb wound up at Chad’s Hope, a faith-based recovery center in Manchester where he said he was born again. Now his faith and lessons on ways to stay sober give him a new future.
