How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
-Psalm 133:1, NIV
Biblical Unity at Christian Academy School System is the pursuit of God-honoring oneness with Christ, amongst all of our employees, all of our students and in all of our homes – for God’s glory, for all of our good and for the sake of our surrounding communities.
Mr. Deon Parker
Director of Biblical Unity at Christian Academy School System
Mr. Parker grew up in the state of Michigan (and yes, he is a huge Michigan Wolverines fan and also a fan of the Detroit Lions, Detroit Pistons and Detroit Tigers). He was a 2004 graduate of Piedmont Baptist College (now Carolina University in Winston-Salem, NC). He has been married to his wife Julie since 2001, has five children and two grandchildren. (Two of his children are students at Christian Academy of Louisville – English Station.) Mr. Parker has spent nearly two decades in vocational Christian ministry as a Senior Pastor, Associate Pastor, Prison Chaplain, Rescue Mission Chaplain, College and High School Sports Chaplain, Christian School Teacher and Christian School Chaplain, before joining us as the Director of Biblical Unity for Christian Academy School System.
It is historically true that when God’s people from all backgrounds work together our world changes for the better. Biblical unity takes God, you and me.
– Mr. Deon Parker
