Ben Sandoval – Athletic Director
First and foremost, I would like to take the opportunity to thank my Lord for the opportunity to be employed at Evangel Christian Academy. My name is Ben Sandoval. My wife, our four children and I have truly been blessed with the opportunity to serve the Lord in such an amazing Christian centered school. I have recently retired from Mesa Vista Consolidated School district after 26 years of serving as Special Education Teacher, Athletic Director, Coach and various other positions throughout the years. During my high school and college years I participated in Cross Country and Track & Field at the National level, I say this because throughout those years of participation at such a high level I never lost sight of the fact that the Lord was my one and only reason for being there. I knew that everything that was accomplished was to glorify my Lord, not myself. I would have to say that this is the most important lesson I have taught my athletes throughout these years. I feel that athletics is important for everyone, not because of competition but because of the character it helps build.
