What is an Estate Plan?

As a steward of God’s resources, it is important that you use your assets to their fullest potential during your lifetime, both in caring for your family and in serving the Lord. 

Because none of us can know when the Lord will call us home, this task carries some urgency. But it is easy to put off. The absence of a plan can have a devastating impact on your estate–and your loved ones. A proper estate plan should accomplish the following:

  • Express God’s plan of stewardship
  • Provide for your dependents’ financial and guardianship needs
  • Transfer your assets to your loved ones and charitable beneficiaries
  • Manage your estate in a tax-efficient manner with the least possible heartache, cost or delay

“Grace Academy has been a HUGE blessing for our family!! The quality of academic education coupled with a full complement of extracurricular activities has given us an incredible experience. While these 2 things have contributed to the success of our kids, what has been the most impactful is the relationship they have developed with Jesus and how the teachers genuinely love and care for each student. Grace Academy’s motto is ‘Educating for Life / Impacting for Eternity’ and as a family that has been here for 13 years – we have seen this, felt this, and most importantly, lived this. We could not imagine our kids anywhere else and thank God every day for allowing us to be a part of the Grace Academy family!!”
