    The Oder Flight Academy became a reality because of a generous contribution to Faith Lutheran by J.D. and Melissa Oder and Katherine Oder, who wanted to honor the legacy of Katherine’s late husband, J.D.’s father, David Oder. In 1994, David founded Shift4, which grew to became the world’s largest independent payment gateway. He was considered a visionary and pioneer in the payments industry, and both his wife and children were highly involved in the success of Shift4 and have carried forth his entrepreneurial and forward-looking spirit.
    That spirit for being on the leading edge inspired the Oders to capture the vision of what Faith could offer its students – an aviation program that provides both flight and aircraft maintenance training to prepare aspiring pilots and flight mechanics for a career in the airplane industry. Both J.D. and his parents have a love of aviation, and together wanted to use his knowledge and their combined resources to help bring this timely and important program into existence.

  • Mark 10:14

    MARK 10:14 PROGRAM
    Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.  Mark 10:14
     
    Mission:
    To provide an excellent education for middle and high school students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in an inclusive Christian setting.
     
    Our Program:
    • Provides extensive opportunities for students who have special needs to participate in general education classes and campus activities.
    • Ensures a high level of exposure to the general education curriculum.
    • Provides intensive, individualized instruction using research-based methodologies to maximize students' academic progress.
    • Encourages and fosters relationships between non-disabled students and students with disabilities.
    • Instructs and models Christian principles.
    • Welcomes students of all faiths.

    Our Students:
    Mark 10:14 students participate in a full schedule of general education classes alongside their typical peers, giving them daily opportunities to learn and practice age appropriate skills and social behaviors. They receive a high level of support to ensure their success in this inclusive setting. Students access the general education curriculum to the best of their abilities, often using materials that have been created specifically for them. They participate in classroom discussions, labs, skits, and group activities with other students. When portions of the lesson are 'beyond their reach', students come to the Mark 10:14 room for one-on-one instruction in reading, writing and math skills. 

    Mark 10:14 Program students are active participants in all aspects of life at Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School. They have participated in football, basketball, wrestling and track teams as well as choir and band.  Mark 10:14 students have been involved in computer club and art club, and have participated in LipSync, Crusader Competitions, Talent Shows and Middle School Service Projects. Two of our students have had roles in Middle School drama productions. See our student photo album to glimpse the joy Mark 10:14 students bring to their participation in all these activities!

Our mentors have exceeded our expectations in every way. They provide capable and insightful assistance, and serve as ambassadors, allies and role models for the Mark 10:14 students. While performing an invaluable service, the mentors themselves grow and learn from the experience. 
     
    The Mentor Program is a full year elective open to students in grades 9-12. A 'pass' or 'fail' grade is received for this class. Applications are accepted each Spring for the following school year. 

    "Being a mentor has given me so much more respect for people who go through obstacles in life. Watching the Mark 10:14 kids live & love their lives has made me so appreciative of life...(It) has given me the skills to help people who have intellectual disabilities...I have also learned patience from being a mentor."
    Jenna - Mark 10:14 Mentor
