MRS. DEDECKER FEELS BLESSED to have the opportunity to teach the children of New Testament Christian Academy about technology and how it can help them to further God’s kingdom. She also wants to show how technology can be used in their daily lives and in their future jobs as well. Her main goal is to help the children feel some control over what they are doing in their technology class, while knowing who is ultimately in control and that is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. She plans to encourage the children to pray every day for guidance and for help in living according to God’s will.
Currently, Mrs. DeDecker is a Sunday School teacher at Trinity Lutheran for 7th and 8th grade girls and has been serving in the Sunday School program for over 15 years.
