History of LLCA

In response to a growing need for high-quality Christian education, Lindsay Lane Christian Academy was established. Senior Pastor Dusty McLemore heard God speak into his heart early in his ministry at LLBC that a Christian school was to be part of the vision for LLBC to reach the world and make a difference for Christ.  The desire and need to raise “Champions for Christ” were present, but adequate facilities were not.  With the opening of the two-story Children’s Building in 2008, LLBC now had the facilities to potentially open a Christian school.  After much prayer and wonderful counsel from other successful church schools, the leadership of LLBC organized and planned the start of LLCA for the 2009-2010 school year. The LLBC church body approved the financial and spiritual support needed to begin. 

The first Principal, Lori Edgemon, began her ministry of Christian Education in June of 2009.  In 2010, 7th grade was added at “Station 251”, which was located on the corner of Highway 251 and Oakdale Road.  The summer of 2011 God did exceedingly more than anyone had ever imagined by merging Lindsay Lane Christian Academy and Faith Christian Academy.  With the purchase of Faith Christian Academy, Lindsay Lane Christian Academy became a K3-12th grade Christian school.  In June of 2013, Steve Murr was called to be the first headmaster of the Academy to oversee the operations of all three campuses as enrollment grew to over 350 students. In 2015, a new gym floor, the gym parking lot and ball fields were added at the west campus with an enrollment of 420.  The site was also revealed to add mulitple buildings on this campus.  In 2018, a new building with six classrooms and a FEMA rated shelter was opened with a new parking lot in front of the property.  School was opened with 460 students.  We can't wait to see what God has in store for LLCA as we enter our 10th year!
