Iowa Christian Academy To Break Ground at Jordan Park Camp

Iowa Christian Academy will begin construction on their new facility at Jordan Park Camp. 

Iowa Christian Academy will break ground on their new facility at Jordan Park Camp in West Des Moines next Thursday. Walnut Creek partnered with ICA on the project, leasing five acres of the camp for the construction of the gym.

“ICA has been deeply blessed throughout its short history, and we are grateful to the leadership of Walnut Creek Church for helping this long-held dream come true,” said Scott Kolb, ICA Board Chair. “This is yet another blessing that will help the mission of the school in developing leaders committed to Christ.”

Phase One of the project includes the construction of the gym. Phase Two will include the construction of high school classrooms, with Phase Three involving the remodeling of the current ICA facility on Vine Street to accommodate more elementary students.

“When people from different Christian communities work together for a common good, it is a powerful testimony of Christ's love. Walnut Creek Church is delighted to work with Iowa Christian Academy, such an outstanding Christian school, in seeing this beautiful facility built,” said Pastor Tim Rude.

Founded in 1999, Iowa Christian Academy is a private, nondenominational Christian school for preschool students through 12th grade.

ICA will hold a groundbreaking ceremony and prayer on Thursday, May 14 at 6 p.m. at Jordan Park Camp. The event is open to the public.
