About Our Principal
Dr. Deborah L. Hollis was a public school educator for over 28 years and has served as Ministry Educational & Outreach Administrator for LoveWorks Church since its inception in 2010. She also served as Youth Leader and Choir Director for ten years for the Morningside COGIC. She has served as an elementary and middle school teacher for approximately 10 years teaching English, Reading, Writing, and Social Studies. She began her educational career as a tutor for one of her mother's (Evangelist Mattie V. Hollis) college courses and followed a path of teaching for which she was destined. She achieved a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications, and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from the University of Pittsburgh. During her service as Assistant Principal for the public schools in Pittsburgh, Dr. Hollis pursued and achieved her doctoral degree, EdD in School Leadership from Liberty University in 2019 with the hopes of providing students and teachers the necessary resources and best pedagogical practices to increase academic performance and spiritual growth. During her public school and doctoral experiences, Dr. Hollis realized the importance of intentional spiritual nurture for children and youth in our schools to help the growth and development of the whole student. The value of life in our world is diminishing rapidly and has become very detrimental. With a growing concern for the total wellbeing of children and youth, Dr. Hollis retired in July 2022 from public school administration and decided to focus more on providing students with an opportunity for the growth and development of the whole self, body, soul and spirit within a spiritually nurturing and safe school environment. Spiritual nurture is purpose-driven, Christ-centered, and grounded in a biblical worldview. In His youth, Jesus experienced intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social growth and development as he "increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man" (Luke 2:52), KJV). As a Christian school leader, Dr. Hollis is dedicated to carrying out the mission of intentional spiritual nurture in the lives of children and youth.
