What is an Ambassador?

II Corinthians 5:20
“We are therefore Christ’s Ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf; be reconciled to God.”


This verse was the foundation on which Pastors John Dunlap and Gene Garrick launched Norfolk Christian Schools in 1952. Its students were proudly called Ambassadors, meaning “one who represents” or “messenger.”

True to our heritage and to our calling in II Corinthians, we shape students who strive for excellence in everything they do, who care well for each other, and who are prepared, committed, and eager to represent Christ to the world.

  • At least one parent must be a professing believer in Jesus Christ, provide a written testimony of his or her relationship with Him and be committed to a lifestyle in agreement with our Statement of Faith.
  • Active Community Involvement forms should attest to the regular attendance and commitment of at least one parent in a local church that teaches in agreement with our Statement of Faith.


  • Applicant transcripts and testing should show at least average understanding of grade level material and a clear desire to work to the best of their abilities.
  • Teacher evaluations should show that applicants can succeed independently in a traditional classroom setting.


  • Applicants should have a behavioral record that indicates a willingness to respect authority.
  • Teacher recommendations should testify to a student’s willingness to exhibit Godly character and have a positive influence on the classroom environment.
