About
Truth Chapel World Evangelism Fellowship Church was started in September 2004 by Scott and Nikkie Corbin, desiring to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ without compromise.

Since beginning the church, they have often been questioned about whether they would ever start a school. Realizing that there are many problems in public schools (ranging from disruptive students to unGodly curriculum), Scott and Nikkie do always encourage people to find another option. For Scott and Nikkie, parents of 5 children, that option has been to homeschool. However, Scott and Nikkie realized that some cannot or do not desire to homeschool. And for those who can't homeschool, some cannot afford the typical private school prices. Therefore, they desired to provide an affordable option for those families.

What once seemed like an impossible task became a possibility. Realizing the ability to have multiple ages in one classroom, and Nikkie, a graduate with an elementary education degree, agreeing to abandon homeschool and give her time to this ministry, opened the doors to the possibility of beginning a small Christian school with a conservative Christian education.

In 2013, seven students applied for enrollment for the 2013-2014 school year, with only three of those students being children other than Scott and Nikkie's own.  Though it was only a few interested families, Scott and Nikkie felt strongly that it was the right thing to do.

They began seeking funding for the building of the school on the 11 acres of land that the church owned.  A generous donor from their area offered a donation of $20,000 under the condition that it was matched.  Members of the church donated the needed $20,000.  There were discussions with a local bank to received the remaining $35,000 that was needed to build.  The aforementioned donor offered to loan the remaining amount, instead. Then, when meeting to get the loan, the donor announced that she had decided to just donate the money rather than loaning it.

In the summer of 2013, the school was built, and classes began September 2013.

For a period of time, the school grew but then for various reasons, had to close.  Now, Scott and Nikkie focus on their outreach to homeschool families, but if sufficient interest returns for the school, they will pursue re-opening the doors.
