MVL is blessed to have a great number of people in our family, all with a heart for Christian education. The Spirit of MVL Gala is designed to bring this family together in thanksgiving.

The 2021 event raised funds to replace our mats in the gym and to remodel our weight room. The event also supported the Partnership Fund. Thanks to the generous givers, item donors, sponsors, and viewers, more than $90,000 was raised for these two important pieces!

Additionally, we honored our 2021 Spirit of MVL award recipients: Drew & Sharon Buck, Valerie Holzhueter, and Keith Wessel. We thank these individuals for using their time, talents, and treasures to the glory of God and to the benefit of Christ-centered education.

Thank you to our Sponsors!
