Fall 2022

Dear MPCS Alumni,

I am now into my fifth year as Alumni Relations Manager, and I continue to pursue every possible avenue to make the MPCS Alumni Program the best it can be. We have made great strides in the past four years, with those made in the past year exciting me the most. We are moving from an event-driven alumni program to being a purpose- driven alumni program. How do I know this? Alumni engagement is greater than it has ever been at MPCS, and the numbers clearly bear that out.

Authentic relationships, engagement, and partnerships are forming between the alumni community and MPCS. We now have

  • 23 alumni actively serving on the alumni council.
  • 20 alumni serving on the Alumni Mission Partners (AMP) committee, partnering with Christian Life to help the school achieve its mission.
  • 7 alumni mentoring seniors in the goLEAD leadership program at MPCS.
  • More than 20 alumni either full-time, part-time, or summer employees of MPCS.
  • 11 alumni who served at the inaugural alumni family serve day this past May.
  • 11 alumni interns who served at MPCS the past year.
  • More than 20 alumni who worked this past summer camps.
  • More than 15 alumni who volunteered to speak or to help the school in some way in the past year.

And, on it goes! What a blessing it is to be a part of an alumni program whereby alumni engage with their alma mater in supporting its mission. MPCS alumni, you are a blessing to many. I thank you for modeling servant-leadership!

From the President

Beau O'Dell Family-1.jpg"I am incredibly excited for the opportunity to serve as the alumni council president and to lead in the continuing building of the MPCS alumni program!  Its growth over the past several years has been the result of the amazing people that have served on the council and their commitment to growing an exemplary alumni program. We will build on the foundation they have laid and offer even more opportunities for our alumni to jump in and get involved.  It’s going to be special watching these things take shape over the next few years! MPCS has had a tremendous impact on all our lives, and I look forward to seeing some alumni simply reconnecting with MPCS, while also seeing other alumni partner with the school in furthering the Kingdom of God in the lives of its students and its alumni."
