Mrs. Erica Steinke

First Grade Teacher


I grew up in the church. I witnessed family members who loved the Lord. But as a child I knew Jesus as THE savior, not MY savior. As a 15-year-old I traveled down to West Virginia with a youth group, that included my now husband, to be a part of a missions trip. I hadn’t realized then, but God would meet me there, and I would encounter him as MY savior, as I realized my depravity and His great love. Since that moment of justification, I have humbly seen Him transform my heart, day by day. I am eternally thankful that He chooses to use me, a sinner, to do His work. Part of that work is here at Faith Christian Academy. Though I myself hold a degree in Art education, I have felt lead to spend more time serving my family at home. I work part-time at FAITH as a teacher’s aide and have fell in love with the role of serving our wonderful, wonderful teaching staff. I am blessed to be married to the administrator and serve alongside him, along with our 3 biological children and 1 foster child who also attend faith, and witness God at work here. To Him be all glory, honor, and praise as we serve Him through educating young minds.
