Pastor Greg Boyle


Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Faith Baptist Academy.  We trust that your visit will be informative and helpful.  Our desire at FBA is to stand beside Christian parents, assisting them in the privileged work of reproducing the mind of Christ in the lives of their children.  Although the Scriptures plainly teach that parents are responsible for the education of their children, there is much we can do to strengthen your hands in this great and eternal task.  Our staff and faculty work hard each day to make Faith Baptist Academy a place of Spiritual and Academic excellence.  We hope you will contact us today.  You only have one opportunity to educate your child, make sure they receive a Christian education in a godly environment.

Our Principal

Jens Heiberg


Mr. Jens Heiberg grew up in a good Christian family in Spokane, WA. They attended Faith Baptist Church, and through the ministry of the church he realized that he was a sinner. Mr. Heiberg put his faith in Jesus as his Savior on July 5, 2007 while on a youth trip. After finishing high school in 2007, he went to Golden State Baptist College to study music. He graduated with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in education, then married his wife, Esther, in June of 2013. They have two children.

After graduation the Lord led the Heiberg’s to Willamette Valley Baptist Church, where Mr. Heiberg taught in the school for six years. In 2019 God moved them back to Spokane to Faith Baptist Church, where Mr. Heiberg is now serving as the principal of Faith Baptist Academy.
