The Crusaders

Crusaders Mission Statement: The Crusaders is a Christian organization that has been established to serve our members through fellowship, educational opportunities, and activities. Our desire is to be committed and dedicated to the well being of our families through Christian example, encouragement, and support; all for the Christ's glory. We are an extension of each family's individual school. Participation involves reinforcing family values and Christian principles through conduct.

  • We believe that God gives parents the primary right and responsibility to educate their own children.
  • We believe that home educators provide a high quality education for their children.
  • We believe that parental love and understanding, patience to teach until the child learns, and parental recognition of the needs of the whole child is more important than teacher-education requirements.
  • We believe responsibilities should be shared among all the members. No one person or group of individuals should be over burdened.

Founded in 1989, originally named Lifespring Homeschoolers Association. A non-profit organization designed to meet the needs of fourteen families whom at the time attended Lifespring Church of God in Pineville. During the last several years we have created a policy board, designed positions to serve our members, drafted bylaws, changed our name to The Crusaders, and increased our membership to over 50 families.
