Bradenton Christian School announces our BCS Gala, Godly MENTORSHIP, The Legacy Continues, to be held on Friday, November 8, 2019 at Bradenton Christian School’s Gym and Wichers Auditorium. This year we are honoring our coaching legacy at BCS. We will hear from BCS former athletic director and coach, John Visser; the county’s most tenured coach at one school for 38 seasons with over 500 wins, Jim Van Til; and, David Magley, NBA player, current President of The Basketball League, and former BCS boys basketball coach from 2000-2011. These three coaches help represent the incredible blessing of Godly mentorship that our students have received at BCS. That is not where the story ends...Godly Mentorship is a legacy at BCS that will continue!
