About Our Principal

Dr. Deborah L. Hollis is a retired public-school teacher and administrator for over 28 years and has served on the Board of Directors as Education & Outreach Administrator for LoveWorks Church since its inception in 2012.  She began her teaching career as a tutor for one of her mother's (Evangelist Mattie V. Hollis, founder of LoveWorks Church) college courses and followed a path of teaching for which she was destined.  She has worked diligently as an elementary and middle school teacher for approximately 10 years providing instruction in several content areas including english, reading, writing, mathematics, and social studies. While teaching, colleagues encouraged Dr. Hollis to pursue school administration, which she later decided to follow and was assigned as an Assistant Principal for over 15 years.  She also served as a youth leader and choir director for ten years at Morningside COGIC in the Garfield area of Pittsburgh, PA. Dr. Hollis embodies a love for children and youth and a sincere desire to aid in their growth and development academically and spiritually.  She achieved a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications, and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from the University of Pittsburgh.  During her assignment as Assistant Principal, Dr. Hollis pursued and achieved her doctoral degree, EdD in School Leadership in Christian education 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.  In her experience with public education, Dr. Hollis realized an increase in the absence of moral character development, a diminishing value of life and hope among students who live in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in particular, and low expectations of teachers who work in schools with an increased population of economically disadvantaged students.  Moreover, in her doctoral studies of Christian schools, Dr. Hollis also recognized the importance of intentional spiritual nurture for children and youth to aid in their growth and development, physically, psychologically, and spiritually.  With a growing concern for the total wellbeing of children and youth, Dr. Hollis retired in July 2022 from public school education and decided to focus more on providing students with an wholesome quality educational experience that helps build and strengthen 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 through the word of God in the lives of children and youth.

We encourage all families to search for scholarships. There are several outside agencies and organizations that offer tuition assistance for children attending private and Christian schools. Please read each organization’s guidelines carefully. Each has their own guidelines, requirements, documentation needed, and due dates. Foundations have two types of scholarships: EITC and OSTC. Both are based on income. EITC is available to all PA families that qualify by income; OSTC provides funds only for families living in low-performing school districts.
