It is with a heavy, but joyful heart that we inform you that longtime Valley Christian staff member and friend, Marty Smith, has been called to his eternal home. Marty passed away peacefully in his sleep on the evening of January 19th. Please be in prayer for those closest to Marty, including his loving wife, Cyndee, and his children, Stephanie “Smith” Liebold ‘98 and Ian Smith ’02. Marty retired from VCS in 2021 after doctors discovered late-stage cancer. Our VCS staff and community has prayed often for Marty, our longtime Facilities Director, for the past two years. Marty’s sharp sense of humor and abiding faith will be sincerely missed by all of us. Marty was truly beloved by so many; in fact, members of our staff and our student body raised money in 2021 to purchase a brick to honor Marty that sits at the entrance of Benson Field today. The brick reads, “To Marty Smith, our student-loving, pancake-flipping, set-building facilities director, thank you!” Shortly after his initial diagnosis in 2021, Marty shared a video with VCS that he asked us to share with the VCS community. We are honored to share this video with you again today, and we are grateful for how often and consistently Marty pointed others to Christ, even in a difficult time.youtu.be/5WCdWPRyQLYWe will share more information about funeral arrangements and any needs the Smith family may have in the coming days. Cyndee has shared that she is depending upon Matthew 11:28 during this difficult time: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”UPDATE (01/25/2023): Marty Smith’s memorial will take place on February 4th at 10 AM at Arizona Community Church. ...

What People Say About VCS

“Valley Christian changed my life. It revealed to me the value of character in a world that does not seem to believe in it any longer. This school has turned a shy, sad girl into someone on fire for life and thriving. I made friends, found my faith, found a community, found my passion, and found my life. My life will never be the same and I have Valley Christian to thank. It showed me who I wanted to be in this world, and gave me the skills to be able to achieve it. I could not better recommend a school to anyone. Valley Christian was so good to me, and I could not have asked for a better experience.”

– VCS Senior

“The school is doing an exceptional job in educating our students, and I am inspired by the growth and progress of the school.”

– U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema

“We are so happy to have found Valley Christian School! A year ago our family relocated from Colorado to Arizona. At the time my husband and I were both working/coaching at an amazing Christian school in Colorado. So, with our expectations very high, we set out in search of a great school and community for our family. Valley Christian very quickly rose to the top of our list and has far exceeded our expectations from day one. If you are looking for a school with academic excellence, professionalism, family-like community and a thriving spiritual culture, Valley Christian is a wonderful choice!”

“It is a fantastic place to really develop your faith while at the same time getting a great education. The Bible classes, chapels, and study groups at the school really allow students to grow in their faith. The opportunities at the school are incredible with so many sports, art groups, and clubs that it is so easy for anyone to get involved. The tight knit community of parents and families at the school are super supportive and involved in making Valley Christian a better place.”

– VCS Senior
