Who We Are

We are a body of brothers and sisters in Christ, bonded by our desire to continually follow God's direction in our lives.  He has led us to provide high quality, Christian education in the city in which He has placed us, with a vision focused on the east side of Des Moines.  

Our goal is to do everything we can in this endeavor to further the Glory of God and to make Him known.



Why our school mascot is the THUNDER

Grand View Christian School


2 Samuel 22:14 (ESV)

“The LORD THUNDERED from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.”


In Scripture, THUNDER is frequently employed to describe the awesome and unparalleled power of God. 

  • THUNDER is used as a figure of speech to communicate the power and potency of God’s voice (Ps. 29:3). 
  • God often announced His holy presence with THUNDER (Exodus 20:18). 
  • God used THUNDER as a weapon for war (1 Samuel 7:10). 
  • THUNDER emanates from the throne room of God in heaven (Revelation 4:5). 


To us, whether it is a deep penetrating rumble or a sudden deafening crack, THUNDER is an awe-inspiring reminder of the ultimate power of God and an emblematic expression of His universal supremacy. 


As the GRAND VIEW CHRISTIAN THUNDER, we desire to know, serve, worship, and proclaim this thunderous God.  He alone is mighty to save!
