“We live in the shade of trees we did not plant.”


Briarwood Christian School is a ministry that impacts the lives of over 1800 students each year. The life changing work that is done at Briarwood will carry on for generations in the lives of those students. Our goal is to bring glory to God through instruction that is Christ centered in all areas.
Your support of the Lions has a lasting impact and makes a difference for the kingdom of God in the lives of the next generation of leaders! Your support provides the needed funds to allow BCS to continue to fulfill its mission in a way that honors our God through excellence.
As you prayerfully consider your support for this ministry please don’t forget that your prayers for the school are needed on a daily basis. Be sure to have prayers for the BCS students, faculty, staff and leadership each day. The enemy is strong but our God is victorious! Please pray for the school and support us as you are able. Your willingness to be a part of our ministry team means so much to all of us. Please accept our Thanks in advance!!!


Briarwood School Gifting 2018

Dear Parents, Grandparents, Alumni, and Friends of BCS,

As we sit in the shade of trees those before us planted, we humbly enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Our desire and prayer is that we too can leave the same legacy and be a blessing for the next generation!

During Christmas time as we consider how God has blessed and provided for Briarwood through many of the contributions and sacrifices of so many, our hearts are overwhelmed with gratitude for the Lord’s provision.  Yet there remain many strategic needs that your giving can help address if you feel so led.

Briarwood has established a fund named Leaving a Legacy that will:

  1. Help qualified families with tuition assistance
  2. Support facility improvement projects on both campuses
  3. Help bridge the gap between tuition our families pay and the actual cost of our students’ education

There are many ways to contribute to BCS and every contribution makes a difference.  Your gift of any amount reflects your purpose to unite with us as we strive to provide an exemplary K-12 Christian school education.

Here are the areas that you can designate your gift to be used by BCS:

  • Greatest Need (BCS may apply to the area of greatest need or opportunity)
  • Leaving a Legacy Fund for need based tuition assistance
  • BCS Student Missions Scholarships

As we seek to fulfill our Briarwood mission, we ask you to join us and prayerfully consider making a year-end gift to Briarwood Christian School.   Thank you for your prayers and financial support.
