Minding The Gap

We Believe

Our core values to Love and Trust.

We believe that the goodness of God and His unmerited favor are bestowed equally upon all mankind. Every person, male and female, rich and poor, young and old, of every race and ethnicity, has immeasurable worth and value because they are created in God’s image. The two greatest Commandments are to love God with all of our heart and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Meeting basic needs in our communities and serving those around us is our practical response to God’s commandments.

Minding the GAP

Our Values

  • Love


    Minding the Gap operates, at its heart, as an expression of love to our community. We want to serve others so that they can flourish, succeed, and experience better lives because of our labor.

  • Trust


    We value interacting with the community in a way that demonstrates full sincerity, honesty, and follow through on our commitments, building a reputation that can be trusted.

  • Investing


    Investing in the future generation: We believe it is easy to change the future – investing in a child has tremendous impact on the rest of their life, and thus on the lives of everyone that child touches.

    I am the principal of Compass Elementary and I can attest to the fact that it has been a wonderful and rewarding experience to work side by side with Zack Nicholson. He has been faithful in his dedication to partner with the staff, students and families of Compass Elementary. He has left an indelible mark on the stakeholders of Compass through his sacrificial service of meeting the needs of our school community. Through his partnership with Caring for Kids, he has worked to get us the resources and support needed to create a great culture and climate.  We are grateful to have him as one of our biggest supporters.  Thank you Zack for continuing to be a positive influence at Compass Elementary.
