My name is Mike Ma, co-founder of Creator’s House. When my firstborn, Seth, was born and I began asking the questions all new parents ask about; parenting, education and how to raise him the way God would want his son to be raised. Before there was ever an educational institution, there was a family. I love how God wants us to choose abundant life in the garden of freedom, with intimate connection to His heart. God was bigger than our mistakes and wrong choices. What would learning look like in Father’s house?
The question that plagued me was if traditional school was the best education I could provide my children, knowing they are unique, they are creative and they have calling from God. I’m an entrepreneur and an innovator. In my heart I believed there had to be a better way! The idea of homework, frequent tests, sitting in a classroom all day, and conforming to a school agenda felt to me like I was wasting my children’s time and limiting their potential.
3 years ago, God connected us with a family. Jeff and Laura Sandefer had launched Acton Academy for their two young boys. I visited Acton and remember thinking, “Those kids are empowered, encouraged, and absolutely love learning. I would have given anything for that type of education.” I did not know that starting a school would be part of the path the Lord had for my family. But when the Holy Spirit spoke those words in me, I knew. We have the opportunity to see God working in incredible ways on a daily basis in the lives of kids and their families.
If you are ready to reinvent education for your family, I encourage you to connect with us. We look forward to meeting your family.
