Families from across the country come to Faith Christian Ministries Central to have their children evaluated in its comfortable, non-threatening environment. Dr. Paul Cates and his staff then explain evaluation results to parents in a quiet, home-like setting that almost belies the sophisticated, cutting-edge nature of his work of truly individualized homeschool plans. Behind the scenes, Dr. Cates’ attentive staff fills the needs of each customized curriculum from hundreds of titles available at FCM Central. Faith Christian Ministries is also a long time member of ACSI.
Faith Christian Ministries is sponsored by and affiliated with Faith Lutheran Church. FCM Central houses Dr. Cates’ offices and evaluation facility. We work to educate the student or students and the entire family.
