Hello, my name is Lyle Van Ravenswaay.  I live in Hull with my wife Mary and four children.  We are members of Calvary Protestant Reformed Church in Hull.  I grew up in Northwest Iowa and attended Dordt College.  I taught in Alcester, SD, and Waupun, WI, before coming to Western Christian in 1997.  I received my Masters Degree in Music Education from the University of South Dakota.  My hobbies include anything that involves creating with my hands, from playing music to building a playhouse.

At Western Christian, I teach instrumental music which includes Senior Band, Freshman Band, Orchestra, Drumline, and Jazz Band.  I co-teach a survey course titled Advanced Music Studies.  As of 2010, I also teach Old Testament Bible to the freshmen class.  Other responsibilities that I have are Student Council sponsor, as well as various other committees.

Being a part of the mental and spiritual development of high school students is very rewarding.  I love to see students mature from their freshman year to their senior year.  I love to witness the Holy Spirit's work in their lives.  I enjoy taking a personal interest in each student that enters the front doors of our school.  My prayer is that the Lord will continue to refine and use me at Western Christian.
