In 1983, he founded Sunrise Christian Academy with one teacher and six students. Over the years it has grown to include over 500 students from Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade and includes a Childcare Facility for ages 1-4. He still finds the time to teach 2 courses for Seniors, Honors Bible and Calculus. These are subjects where he gets to share his love for studying the Scripture and Math with our students.
One of Dr. Lindsted’s greatest concerns over the past thirty years has been to bring the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to countries with an open door. He took his first trip to the former Soviet Union in 1991, with 37 other Christians. His heart was stirred as he saw the conditions of the country and the people’s spiritual hunger for God’s Word, and thus “Milk & Honey Ministries” was formed. To date, over 5 million Bibles, Gospels of John, and other tracts, have been distributed to the Russian people. Dr. Lindsted is also a Christian author, and his first non-fiction book, "The Next Move," was published in 1985. Other publications include: "The Certainty of Bible Prophecy," "Travel Guide to Israel," "Can You Really Know Your Future?" and "The Power of the Cross".
Dr. Lindsted and his wife, Sharon, have 3 children: Pam, Byron, & Kyle; seven grandsons: Casey, Cody, Chase, Joseph, Cayden, Zak, and CJ and two granddaughters: Kyron and Cyleigh.
