Fiat Lux - Spring Gala

Fiat Lux

On March 5th, 2022, JECA held its fourth annual spring gala, FIAT LUX, at Drakewood Farms and it was a thrilling night! Jill Phillips and Andy Gullahorn were a delight and a huge thank you to our sponsors and guests that helped us raise over $127,000 to further our school’s vital operations! Thank you!


This Latin phrase comes from the first verses in the Bible. The book of Genesis begins: “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth … And God said, ‘Let there be light’: and there was light.” Fiat Lux would literally be translated as “let light be made”. God’s tremendous creating power is one of the hallmarks to understanding His nature. And since we are made in His image, we also define Fiat Lux by what we create in this world. We who have the imprint of Christ on our lives are the light-bearers. With this event, we hope to create an evening that honors the nature of our sovereign King and thus echo creation that proclaims “Fiat Lux”.


PROGRAM –  Jill Phillips and Andy Gullahorn will be our very special entertainment for Fiat Lux 2022! We are so excited to host such talented artists this year! More information can we found at their websites:
