New Elementary Principal, Gordon Nickel- Letter from Roger VanDorp, Executive Director
Dear OCS Family and Friends, 
I am pleased to announce that Mr. Gordon Nickel has accepted our offer to join the Oakland Christian School Administration as our Elementary Principal, effective July 1, 2014.   Mr. Nickel was one of a number of excellent candidates who interviewed for this position. Gordon’s many relevant qualifications and his sincere commitment to Christian school education have prepared him well for this important role at OCS.  We are encouraged with Gordon’s heart to serve the students, teachers, and parents of our school.  He places a high value on preparing the next generation to love and serve Jesus and to impact society in His name.  
Gordon comes to us from West Michigan, although he served for a number of years in the Detroit area. He has been in Christian education for 35 years and has served as an Elementary Principal and Headmaster. His educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Fort Wayne Bible College and a Master of Arts Degree in Educational Administration from Michigan State University. Gordon and his wife, Ann Marie have 3 children, who have all attended Christian high schools and colleges. 
Even as we prepare to welcome the Nickel family, we recognize and applaud the outstanding service that Mrs. Esther Moreau has provided as our interim Elementary Principal.  Her hard work and dedication to our students and families is greatly appreciated and we are deeply thankful.    
I am delighted that Gordon Nickel will be joining our team, and I invite you to pray for him and for his family as they conclude their educational responsibilities at their current employers and as they transition to our area.  The Board of Directors, the Administration, the teachers and I look forward to working with Mr. Gordon Nickel. We are planning a meet and greet for elementary parents after the September Parent Association meeting.  Thank you for your partnership in our great and worthy endeavor of Christ-centered education.  
Roger Van Dorp
Executive Director
