Brenda Buhrkuhl / HS English
SC Freshman English teacher, Mrs. Buhrkuhl, has a rep. It’s that she is tough but fair, firm but kind, and really passionate about helping kids to know what they need to for the next step in their life journey.
“Every day offers opportunities to connect practical knowledge with eternal purpose and to help kids process life’s challenges through a Biblical worldview. It is a gift to be able to combine a job with ministry at a place like Santiam Christian!” said Brenda, when asked why she has chosen to minister at SC.
“As the gap between secular culture and Christian values widens, I believe it’s more important than ever to saturate our kids with truth from God’s word as they grow, so that they will be able to withstand the continual chipping away at their faith that they will face throughout life.”
As an English teacher, she has a way with words, doesn’t she. She eloquently says what we believe and why we are here. We are grateful that Brenda and her family have chosen Santiam Christian as their home, extended family and ministry!
