Mr. Town brings expertise and spiritual depth to DMC's leadership team.
"Middle School at DMC is a place where students learn not just about academics, but also about themselves. We positively support them as they grow spiritually, socially, and emotionally and provide the environment to do so.
When I think about what I want our students to know as they move through Middle SchooI, it's most important that they know Jesus. I want students to know they are coming to a place where they have adults who love and care about them, and want to see their relationship with Jesus flourish.
Middle School is about balancing learning and fun. When we can marry the two, mission accomplished. Our House system provides a core structure for teambuilding, games, competitions and leadership opportunities. Ultimately, in everything we do, we want to bring our focus back to our mission of equipping minds and nurturing hearts to impact the world for Christ. "
