Nelson Horton

Mr. Horton began serving as Superintendent in July 2011, bringing over 30 years of combined Christian School administration and ministry experience. He was no stranger to CHCS before assuming the role of Superintendent, having served as Minister of Administration at College Heights Christian Church from 1999-2008. He previously served at Ozark Christian College as Business Office Coordinator and part-time instructor in the area of Christian education. Before moving to Joplin, Nelson led in the establishment of a Christian elementary school in St. Louis County, and held the position of Superintendent there for fourteen years. He earned a Master of Educational Administration degree from the University of Missouri, St. Louis, and a Bachelor of Sacred Literature degree from Ozark Christian College. Nelson and his wife, Susan, have three children and six grandchildren, and attend College Heights Christian Church. He believes that CHCS is in a unique position to serve Christian families in the Joplin metro area by partnering with parents to provide an excellent academic and Christ-centered education for their children.
