Colossians 3:23-24 says, “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive an inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” This has been my go to verse in ministry. It is such a pleasure and honor to serve Jesus Christ as I serve at Outreach Christian Education.
My parents being the founders of Outreach Christian Education have set before those of us who serve in this ministry a rare heart for loving children, all children, the broken, the hurting (and there are many in this generation), the talented and gifted. After serving for 38 years one thing remains the same there are no two children alike, God has created all different and unique.
The greatest blessing and testimony for OCE is the legacy that I see unfolding. The former graduates that return to serve in the ministry. Young adults who once attended OCE and stop in just to say hello and reminisce on their cherished memories. OCE truly is a family and a growing family at that! I look forward to watching the future generations as they take this ministry to a new level of achievement and success. My prayer is that God will continue to bless the ministry and families of Outreach Christian Education. God is good!

Welcome to Outreach! My name is Jessica Bullard and it is my great honor to serve as the Principal of this ministry. I was very blessed to come to OCE at 3 years of age. I've attended Outreach my entire life. This enabled me to graduate with honors one year early and obtain a full scholarship to a four-year university.
After five years of climbing the corporate hierarchy at a prestigious financial institution, I was a manager, ranked #1 in three states, earning an attractive salary with additional bonuses, and in the position to be promoted again. My heart, however, was being called back to ministry. After much prayer and consideration, God opened a door for me at OCE. I have learned a great deal in my tenure as Assistant Administrator and Principal.
As I have continued to learn and grow with my students and staff, my personal educational trajectory has shifted. After earning my bachelor’s degree in government (with the intent to continue into law), I continued to graduate work. I will complete my master’s program in education in May 2017 and will begin the process of obtaining my doctorate in education.
This ministry and the people in it have blessed me and poured so much into my own life. It is my great honor to attempt recompense by serving OCE, its students, and families. My desire is to pour into this next generation to produce world-changers—young men and women committed to advancing the Kingdom of Christ by serving Him in spirit and in truth, and by becoming empowered, independent contributors to society.
