Our top five competing chess players (and a few more who tagged along for fun) went to face off against Faith Bible Christian Academy (FBCA) on March 2nd. It was a long three hour trip down to Rosamond, IL. Our 2nd – 5th graders faced off against their 8th – 9th graders (their youngest players). Although challenging, our kids showed no fear and were quite impressive. Several won a few victories over their older competitors, including Justin Miller and Micah Oberholz. Overall our school lost the traveling trophy with a score of 12-3, but our own Micah Oberholtz did take home a 3rd place ribbon!
We went home feeling great and had some amazing fellowship as we stopped in to the Christian owned buffet, The Bonanza Steakhouse, in Lincoln, IL. We are learning from our mistakes and very much look forwards to a rematch against FBCA!
Thank you FBCA and Mr. Caleb Wheeler for the opportunity to compete and have fellowship.
Brian Hamiel is the founder of NISCE Institute and has big dreams for it. He has always been one to take leaps of faith that further God’s kingdom. In 2008 he and his wife, Sandi, founded NISCE (Northern Illinois School of Christian Excellence), a school from k3 to high school, and worked hard to run it with just him and his wife. From then till now this godly power couple has started two churches, one school, and one new college, and have gained over five new teachers! They have put in countless hours to keep these ministries excellent and affordable, even in the face of immense trials. Brian is eager and overqualified to start NISCE Institute and can’t wait to see where it will go in the future. 2018 will be NISCE Institute’s first year; but we are as ambitious as we are young! We have a dream of a college that offers full degrees and GED certifications. These are attainable goals if God is the center, and we will be praying that we can reach them. If you can’t take a class or donate we have an even greater way you can help our college: prayer. We would appreciate as much prayer as possible as we try to guide the next generation as they live in a ever-changing world.
NISCE Institute is a college that has one major leg up than all other large Christian colleges. It is a new school and therefore is still fairly small giving our students maximum time with teachers and it is priced to keep you from debt! We offer a rare intimacy with teachers and fellow students that give us a sense of teamwork and unity. Imagine a college where you can get one on one instruction, encouragement from peers, and an in depth discussion, all for a very low cost. This is another rare aspect of our college, we are affordable. Our founder, Brian Hamiel, knows the current economic climate and objects to the common practice of burying students under debt. He tailored NISCE Institute to be affordable for the average worker in Illinois. We won’t burden you with bills, but will give you a valuable education and camaraderie that you can’t find anywhere else. So apply today or contact a staff member and see how far NISCE Institute can take you!
NISCE Institute is founded on Christian principles because our founder, Brian Hamiel, is a Christian and has found that it gives meaning and reference to everything. Our college is dedicated to giving the best education possible and sees
