Dear friends and family of Black Forest Academy,

I welcome you to Black Forest Academy.  By God’s grace, we celebrate over 60 years of educational excellence and partnership with Christian workers around the globe.

During these times of global uncertainty, we as a BFA community continue to rest assured in the promises in Christ in whom we find our unity through the bond of peace and our resiliency. Two scripture passages come to mind that give hope and guidance for the months to come:

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called;…

Ephesians 4:2-4 (NIV)

Blessed is the one…whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

Psalm 1:1-3 (NIV)

May God continue to sustain and equip you for the journey ahead as we learn together.

Welcome to Black Forest Academy.
