Bethany O’Rourke had the privilege of growing up in a Christian home in several different states: Indiana, New York, Michigan, and Georgia. She went to several Christian schools and graduated from a Christian school in Georgia. She attended Pensacola Christian College and graduated from Georgia Baptist College with a B. S. in Bible and Elementary Education. She taught K4 in Georgia for a year and a half before joining her family in ministering at Latham Christian Academy in the winter of 2005. Education is in her blood with her grandfather being a teacher and administrator and her father being a Christian school teacher and administrator. Mrs. O’Rourke believes that Christian education is a great sacrifice but also has great rewards for Christian parents striving to educate their children.
