April Spurlock: Director of Early Childhood Education - Smyrna Campus

My name is April Spurlock, and I have been blessed to be a part of the LCA ministry for over a decade. I have had the pleasure of being a part of thousands of children’s and families’ lives during this time. I served as a Pre-K teacher for three years, toddler teacher for one year, and a curriculum coordinator for two years.  In 2011, I felt the Lord calling me to be the director of the Early Learning Center. I’m very thankful for the opportunity to provide excellent, Christian, early education for hundreds of children each year!

I was born in Decatur, Illinois and grew up in Charlotte, Tennessee. My family moved to Smyrna my Junior year of high school and I instantly fell in love with this community.  I studied Early Childhood Education and Psychology at Middle Tennessee State University, where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree.  I have two amazing sons who attend Lancaster Christian Academy and completed the Early Learning Center program.  My desire is to provide a loving, nurturing, Christ-centered environment for every child that I meet and get that opportunity everyday at Lancaster Christian Early Learning Center!

Megan Bragg: Assistant Director of Early Childhood Education - Smyrna Campus

My name is Megan Bragg and it is my honor to serve the children and families of Lancaster Christian Early Learning Center!  I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and have lived in New York, Florida, Idaho, and Alaska; before settling in Tennessee.  My family and I have resided in Smyrna since 1996 and love to call it home.  I have a strong relationship with our Lord and Savior and am so thankful He has lead me to this wonderful place filled with His love and spirit. 

 

I am married to my best friend and we have two wonderful sons and one very beautiful daughter that love the Lord. Being a mother is one of the greatest blessings of which I am thankful.  All 3 of my children attend Lancaster Christian Academy and through them the Lord has brought my family to this wonderful school. I know His will is being played out in my life, as I am able to be a part of the LCA ministry. Sharing the Lord with your children and watching them grow in Him is truly a blessing!  I am so excited to see where the Lord takes me and your children while I am serving at Lancaster Christian Early Learning Center.

Tina Bryson: Director of Early Childhood Education - Murfreesboro Campus

 

My name is Tina Bryson and it is an honor to be a part of Lancaster Christian Early Learning Center!  I was born and raised in Windsor, Vermont and have lived in Ohio and Kentucky.  I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. Serving as a First Grade teacher for thirteen years and participating in mission work in Honduras has prepared me to serve you and the LCA family with excellence. 

 

I am married to my wonderful husband Curt.  We met while serving as missionaries in Kenya for two years. After getting married, we knew we were called to serve in the mission field of Africa.  We sold or gave everything we owned away and left the country in September of 2015 to serve as missionaries for Youth with a Mission (YWAM) in Costa Rica, Uganda, South Sudan, and Kenya.  We lived in Kenya for a year and delivered our first child in Nairobi.  After our daughter was born, God called us back to Tennessee to serve and Smyrna has become our home once again.

My heart and desire is to see children flourish in an environment where they know God and feel His love and His presence daily.  I get the privilege of being a part of that every day at Lancaster Christian Early Learning Center!

Apryl Davis: Assistant Director of Early Childhool Education - Murfreesboro Campus

 My name is Apryl Davis and I am so blessed to serve in ministry at Lancaster Christian Early Learning Center.  I was born and raised in Miami, Florida.  After 10 years of teaching and being in the school system, I knew that I wanted to pursue a degree in education.  I graduated from Florida International University with a Master of Science degree in Early Childhood Education.

 

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Aubrey, and have two awesome children, Austin and Alyssa. Making Christ the center of everything that we do is the focus in the Davis household. I have a passion for children, events, and Disney!  I always make it my mission to bring joy and fun to everything that I do. 

 

In 2017, my family and I evacuated to Tennessee during Hurricane Irma.  To say that we fell in love with this beautiful state is an understatement.  My children instantly asked if we could move to Tennessee and after prayers for guidance and planting small seeds of faith, God led us down a clear path to LCA.  It has been such an amazing experience being here.  My family has gained so many more family members during this transition.  It is my top priority to serve our children, families, and staff with all my heart and soul while leading others to Jesus!
