In September 2003, the Pathway to Jesus School was founded by Guillermo and Shelley Hernandez. It was established to serve as a preschool/kindergarten for children ages 2-5 years old. The first year the school ministered to 18 students. However, the school grew so quickly it was decided to add a grade level each year and allow the school to minister to more children. Year by year, little by little, the school added more grade levels and received more students. There is such a great need for good, Christian education in the Dominican Republic; therefore, making this ministry very important.
These children come from lower class homes and a lot of them come from dysfunctional families. The majority of them are not from Christian homes so the school has a GREAT opportunity to share God´s love and God´s word with these students and their families and at the same time provide an excellent education.
Pathway to Jesus School (Colegio Caminito de Jesús) presently has a staff of 30 and approximately 260 students, preschool through 6th grade.Guillermo and Shelley have 2 awesome children, Sarah and Mark, who are true blessings from God. Mark and Sarah are currently attending Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL. Mark plans to go into law enforcement and Sarah plans to go into elementary education.
