ACSI and Axis Partner to Help Educators and Parents Stay Current with Youth Culture

Feb 16, 2021, 09:45 AM by Caitlyn Berman (Caitlyn_Berman@acsi.org)

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Feb. 16, 2021 – ACSI and Axis have partnered to provide relevant tools to educators and parents designed to help them stay current with rapidly changing cultural trends impacting youth.

The partnership represents the latest ACSI initiative designed to help schools to flourish. ACSI research indicates a flourishing Christian school is a community of students, educators, and families that glorifies Christ and excels in knowing Him and making Him known. The association believes Flourishing is best achieved through intentionality.

According to Dr. Larry Taylor, ACSI President, an important part of cultivating a flourishing school community is maintaining strong communication between adults and students.

“The purpose of this partnership is to equip educators and parents by keeping them apprised of current culture so they can have timely, Christ-centered conversations with their children,” he said.

Leaders from both ministries share a passion for discipling and training young servant leaders for Christ and see the tremendous relevancy of the partnership.

David Eaton, Axis President and Cofounder, believes this offering will help individuals better understand culture from a biblical worldview.

“Axis is thrilled to offer this opportunity to ACSI members,” he said. “These materials can be used by adults to stay informed about what their children are listening to, watching, or hearing from their friends.”

Axis is known for creating timeless, Christ-centered resources from great thinkers like C.S. Lewis, while keeping a pulse on relevant shifts in culture.

Membership grants users entry to an expansive library of relevant materials and access to a team of Gospel-focused researchers standing by to answer any questions.

Ultimately, both ministries believe the initiative provides tools to help adults and children cope with the dizzying, seismic cultural shifts they face.

“In this rapidly changing culture, it has never been more imperative that educators and parents reach the next generation for Christ,” Taylor said. “We believe this offering will prepare them not only to have important discussions with their children, but also to spur them on in their lifelong relationship with the Lord.”

ACSI schools will receive a 20% off discount for a one-year Axis membership. Member schools can learn more by visiting https://your.acsi.org/AXIS.
