Bob and Nancy met at Cana Community Church in 1982 and were involved in education and music ministries for the homeless and in prisons. They married in 1985, Nancy began teaching, Bob ran a local business and they homeschooled their three children.
In 1999 they followed through on a vision creating Family Tree Ministries and Private School to inspire and help families to educate their children in a "Parent Directed Education" model, a term first introduced by Nancy in the early 2000's in a Florida senate education committee and widely adopted statewide and nationally to describe the private "homeschooling" model. They also continue to help the homeless and are joined in ongoing ministry efforts with their son, Robert "Noah". What a blessing to have your children follow in your tracks to share the love!
Family Tree Private School has a unique program with a Parent Directed education model. Family Tree Private School students are not considered "homeschoolers" by law, but they are educated similar to homeschoolers and join all the same homeschool activity groups! So, Family Tree students get the best of both worlds, unlimited activities in local homeschool groups and affordable private school enrollment for the added benefits of privacy, documentation and one on one support.
