Dear Community Partners and SUA Donors,

Thank you for your support to Seattle Urban Academy. Because of your generosity, young men and women have graduated from high school with a strong academic foundation and Christian teaching, and have gone on to further education and employment. We are so grateful for the years of community support for this ministry.

After much prayer and extensive exploration of possible pathways forward, with a heavy heart CRISTA Ministries announced it will not be able to continue leading operations at SUA following the conclusion of the 2019-2020 academic year. We do remain hopeful that SUA can continue under the leadership of another organization, and we continue to engage with potential partners in our community to explore these possibilities.

We ask you to pray with us – for these continued conversations with prospective partners, as well as for our teachers, staff, students, families and donors. We ask for prayer for wisdom, creativity, and collaboration as we assess various ways to support a transfer to a new ministry organization for SUA.

Together in prayer,

Jacinta Tegman CEO of CRISTA Ministries
