Preschool Director

Hi!  My name is Kara Lowry, and I am the Director of Ablaze Christian Academy.  I have always loved interacting with children, and knew in high school I was meant to be a teacher.  I attended the University of Oklahoma and received my Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education.  After college I got a job teaching three-year olds, and I developed an even greater love for the curiosity and love of life that kids have at such a young age. 

I have been teaching three and four-year olds for the last eight years, and have loved every moment spent in the classroom.  My favorite thing about working with young children is how their confidence is brimming. They have the biggest personalities, and that alone keeps me smiling all day! 

I am a big believer in working with families to create an environment where each student is supported and feels free to explore, learn, and wonder every day.  At Ablaze Christian Academy, we know play is the most important work a child will do, and have built our curriculum around that – playing, exploring, discovering, learning and growing.  We want our classrooms to encourage our students to explore the world around them.

Ablaze Christian Academy is a quality school that I believe will provide the love and support your family is looking for.  I would love to meet with you and talk more about our program and our school!  I am happy to answer any questions and invite you to email or call me to set up a time to talk.

I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of Ablaze Christian Academy and serving the Broken Arrow community and can’t wait to see what God has planned for the children and families of our school!

Campus Pastor

I look forward to serving the children and families within the Broken Arrow community as campus pastor at Ablaze Christian Academy.  We want the love of Jesus to permeate the atmosphere.  I will regularly and joyfully greet kids as they arrive at school. I am available to encourage and give spiritual counsel to all within our Ablaze Christian Academy and Ablaze Church community.  I will work closely and prayerfully with staff members to help them best exemplify and apply Christ’s character.

We work hard at Ablaze Church to be warmly welcoming and to provide a place of new beginnings in life’s journey.  We will be non-traditional in worship and programing, yet with the solid, historic teaching of the Christian faith.  Jesus Christ will always be the core, and the inspired Word of God of Scripture will always be our source.  We want the opportunity for all people, all ages, to become everything God has in mind for them in Christ Jesus.
