Christine Povolish currently serves as the Head Administrator of First Baptist Academy. Along with her administrative duties, she also serves as an Intervention Specialist, teaching students in the structure of the English language in a multisensory manner. She first began teaching and serving with FBA in 2005-2006 as a 6th grade Math, Language Arts, and Science teacher. At that time, her service at FBA came to a pause as she moved with her husband who was in the military.
Christine attended Wright State University, located in Dayton, OH for her Bachelor of Arts Degree. As her kids got older, God began to build in her the desire to become an administrator. As such, she pursued her Master of Education degree with a concentration in teacher leadership and with a minor in curriculum and instruction. As years passed, God continued to mold her into aligning with her husband’s calling as a pastor and her calling as an educator in Christian Education, thus returning to school to receive a Master of Christian Leadership degree through Liberty University, located in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Christine and her husband have three children: Christen, Jeffrey II, and Joshua, whom God has blessed them with. Jeff and Christine have been honored to see each of their children grow in their faith through Christian education so that they may go out into the world and serve in whatever God is calling them to do. One of the greatest blessings and honor for Christine is to be able to serve you and your children in teaching them for time and eternity. Her family’s prayer for you as you walk with your child in Christian education and life may be found in Colossians 1:3, 9 “We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you…For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.”
