This search committee is a team whose primary purpose is to prayerfully and diligently seek the will of the Lord in selecting the next Ben Lippen Head of School. The chairman of the search committee, Dr. Brian Simmons, recently wrote:
We understand the importance of the task that is before us, and we ask for you to join us in daily prayer about this important decision! Ultimately, the Ben Lippen Board of Directors will choose the next head of school, but the search committee has agreed to work collaboratively with the board and has been tasked by them to lead the process. What are we seeking in our next head of school? The mission of Ben Lippen School is to educate students from a biblical worldview to impact the nations with the message of Christ and by assisting the family and church in equipping the students spiritually, academically, socially, and physically under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In short, we exist to develop all of our students at the highest academic levels possible and to encourage them to be devoted followers of Jesus Christ! So, we are seeking a head of school who will personally embrace and personify this high calling! Specifically, we are seeking a new leader who embodies three C's: character, competence and chemistry. We will not compromise on Christian character! We are seeking a man or woman who is a devoted follower of Jesus Christ! Why? Because no leader can lead others where he has not been or is unwilling to go himself! In terms of competence, we are seeking a proven and outstanding educational leader. Finally, in addressing chemistry we are seeking a candidate who is a great fit with the outstanding culture and climate which is Ben Lippen!
Ben Lippen is poised for growth, and we are excited about the future that the Lord has in store for all of us as we seek His will during this new and exciting season of organizational change! We are looking for a proven, visionary leader who is a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. This season at Ben Lippen will require the next head of school to be an effective communicator and a skillful fundraiser. Leading our faculty and staff will require a team builder and a passionate Christian educator! Ideally, we would like to find a man or woman with a Masters degree in education and experience in Christian educational settings. A doctorate would be preferred. If this profile excites and fits you, we would welcome you to apply!
