Little did Tori Holden know while eating french fries that he would one day work alongside some of the same teachers who helped shape him as a student at Harambee Christian School

Today, Tori works as a teacher in the After School Program at Harambee, as he pursues a degree in Education.

Tori – then and now

 On his experience as a former Harambee student, Tori says, “All throughout my time attending Harambee, I was surrounded by an abundance of genuine Christian role models.  At the time, that was exactly what I needed.  I grew up in a pretty good home:  My parents took care of me, loved me, and sacrificed for me.   What I didn’t understand was why my teachers at Harambee showed me that same kind of sacrificial love my parents did.  It was because they knew God.”

In addition to pursuing his degree and working in the ASP, Tori is also a part of Xenos Christian Fellowship’s college ministry.  “My time at Harambee and my involvement in fellowship has really helped me develop a concern for peoples’ eternities.  The harvest is plentiful and the workers are few, and whatever part I can play in affecting people’s lives when it comes to their eternal standing I consider an accomplishment.

Regarding his current role as teacher in the After School Program, Tori says, “Having the opportunity to impact kids’ lives in the same way that my teachers did for me when I was there age is amazing!”
