Bradenton Christian School announces our 60 Years of Blessings Celebration Gala, “Old to New in Orange & Blue” to be held on Thursday, March 25, 2021 at Bradenton Christian School’s BRAND NEW BUILDING & FIELDS. We are praising God for His continued 60 Years of Blessings with the opening of our new facilities.  This evening will celebrate our past 60 Years of Blessings and welcome the next 60 years! 

We want you to see and feel the blessings of the new PAC (Pentecost Athletic Center) and fields.  Since we have 60,000 square feet of open space, you will be seated at reserved tables in the auxiliary gym where we will enjoy a ‘served’ buffet dinner catered by Rich Knowles with Innovative Dining.  After dinner we will gather in the main gym (socially distanced and staying with your table group) to be part of our incredible program line up. 

Being our 60th Anniversary, we found it appropriate to invite two outstanding alumni, Chase Cofer and Taylor Stutts (grandchild of Bernie and Pearl Bandstra, one of the school’s founding families) from Class of 2006 to be our keynote speakers.  Chase and Taylor along with their wives Lindy and Julia, are kingdom builders for YWAM (Youth With A Mission).  They are passionate to train Christian leaders and currently reside in Southern California and Hawaii.  Lindy will also join us and she is a professional worship singer who leads worship all over America and internationally.  We have a great night in store for you, so please join us!


We invite our established families and our ‘new to BCS’ families to unite for this monumental celebration of the Lord’s blessings on BCS!  Have fun with our 60th year, be sure to wear your vintage or new BCS spirit gear!
