Head of School Search
New Head of School Announcement
After a thorough search process with much prayer from the entire Fellowship community, we are pleased to announce Dr. Aaron Farrant as the next Head of Fellowship Christian School. He will succeed Dr. Kathryn M. Teston on July 1, 2024. Dr. Farrant was selected from a national pool of impressive candidates. He comes to Fellowship with more than 17 years of experience, seven of those as a Head of School, where he showed dynamic leadership in delivering excellence in Christian education.
"Dr. Farrant’s considerable achievements and contributions in Christian education speak effectively to his character and professional competence. He is making significant contributions and lends his many gifts to a discipline in which commitment, hard work, and integrity are highly valued." - Dr. Teston
First and foremost, Dr. Farrant has a heart for Jesus Christ and a passion for students, as he aims to continue to steward the incredible work God is doing at Fellowship. He will enhance and uphold our covenant mission while unapologetically steering us toward our vision to see students live with purpose and lead with intent for God's glory alone.
Mr. Brynn Stensrud (Board Chair) notes, "the Fellowship Board of Directors has only one employee, the Head of School, and we have been blessed to have Dr. Teston as that employee for these last 11 years. We knew that the leader following her would have big shoes to fill. So when we undertook this search to find God's next leader of Fellowship, we started in prayer and have not stopped praying throughout the process. It was our sincere desire that we find the person whom God has called to lead Fellowship into the future. In Dr. Farrant, we found a man who possesses a strong faith in Jesus, is committed to covenant Christian education, has demonstrated visionary leadership, and has years of teaching and head -of-school experience in Christian schools. The Board is excited that Dr. Farrant will be our next Head of School."
Dr. Farrant "is a visionary leader, forward-thinking, Christ-honoring, and has a commitment to Christ-centered education. Aaron is a solid disciple of Christ; he's in the Word; he's bright and capable. Yes, he has a very strong academic acumen, but he has an even stronger integrity." - Dr. David Tilley (Interim Head of School - Mount Paran Christian School)
Dr. Farrant earned two master's degrees from Liberty University, an additional Education Specialist degree from Kennesaw State, and then completed his doctorate in 2017. Most of his career has been in Christian education, serving at Mount Paran Christian School for seven years before taking on his most recent post at The Christ School in Orlando. During his tenure at The Christ School, he received commendations for strong school leadership, improvements in academic programs, healthy school culture, and strategic planning as he grew the school in quantity and quality while better serving the families in the school community.
We are excited to welcome Dr. Farrant to the Fellowship Family. He will begin his tenure on July 1, 2024.
