Mrs. Candace Craddick

I joined the HLCA staff in 1991 as an elementary teacher.  I took on the added responsibilities of Vice Principal in 1996.  In 2011 I accepted the position of Administrator/Principal.  All four of my children graduated from House of the Lord Christian Academy.

I consider it an honor to serve the families of this school.  I am committed to providing our students with a learning environment that challenges them spiritually as well as academically.   


Administrative Assistant

Mrs. Donna DeLand   

It is a blessing and a privilege to have worked at HLCA for the past 20 years.  I am the one most likely to answer your phone calls and to answer any questions.  I would be happy to send you HLCA information.  Please contact our e-mail ( or give a phone call (208-437-2184) and I will send it to you.   


Vice Principal   

Mr. Dusty Thomas   

After many years in the Air National Guard and as a teacher and musician in Spokane and North Idaho, I am pleased to call myself part of the staff at House of the Lord Christian Academy.  I joined as an administrator and teacher in 2016 and have also been pleased to start a band program.       

The teachers and administrators here are wonderfully qualified and led to be effective leaders of the students at this school.  I have felt part of a family and my two young boys are well taken care of.  Blessings are a common occurrence here and I hope to be a part of them for a long time to come.               

Early Learning Center Director     

Mrs. Sally Redinger 

I got involved in childcare in 2001.  My first position was as an instructor for a 4 yr. old preschool class.  For the last 13 years I have been working in Idaho childcare centers in Priest River, Post Falls, and Coeur d'Alene.  In 2014 my husband I moved back to this area and registered our three children in House of the Lord Christian Academy.  I accepted the position of Early Learning Center Director.             

I strive to create a loving and safe environment where your children can learn and grow!
