School Leaders are engaging around the importance of spiritual formation in an ever-changing culture and among a myriad of voices. Understanding what flourishing faith in Christian schools looks like, how students grow in their faith, and how Christian schools help nurture and promote spiritual growth is a primary and foundational issue. Join this national event as school leaders and content experts collaborate around the challenges and opportunities of faith formation and experience the unpacking of the NEW Flourishing Faith Index (Research & Instrument). Together, we will engage around integral components: Head (Faithful Worldview), Heart (Faithful Fruit), & Hands (Faithful Deeds) while exploring implications for practice.

June 24-27, 2024 - Black Mountain, NC
Some days it feels like secular culture is winning. Yet, Scripture draws us back to a pivotal premise – God’s truth prevails. Even so, educators around the world are asking how to more effectively engage students in the spiritual formation journey and help develop deeper roots in the flourishing soil of a biblical worldview. ACSI and the Colson Center have partnered together to offer a “worldview retreat” to answer this leading question and provide valuable resources for: a) developing a Christlike culture, (b) facilitating healthy faith formation, (c) providing tools to engage secular ideology, and expanding best practice around a clear and consistent application of biblical integration across all subjects.
