Ambassador Christian Academy opened its doors in September of 2021. This school is the result of Holy Spirit beckoning and convicting four individuals to provide a Christ centered, high-quality Christian education where God’s children can build their relationship with Him while developing a love for learning.

After much prayer, discussion and discernment, Brandon and Jill Kight and Mike and Amy Neikirk agreed that God was indeed calling them to this new season in life. As a result, Offense Ministries, Inc. was formed as a religious not-for-profit organization with the goal of furthering God’s Kingdom by educating and equipping young Christians to engage and impact the broader American culture with a Biblical worldview. One of the most effective ways to do this is through a private Chrsitian school, where children can be taught the only truth according to the Word of God.

God further revealed that the headmaster, teachers, and staff must be called to their positions by Him. Their calling must be missional with the goal of advancing the Gospel of Christ through Christian education. After months of praying over individuals, God raised up Mrs. Carri Schmitz to the role of Headmaster of ACA. Through His providence, God gave Carri the same vision for ACA.

God provided the facility, the finances, the leaders, and the students for ACA. He provides the wisdom for teaching His truths through His Holy Spirit!

Our prayer is that this school teaches its students the true meaning of being an ambassador for Christ as they seek out the life that God has planned for them.
