During a ministry-wide strategic planning process the need to increase our ability to reach our member schools was highlighted. Part of the reimagining of our organizational goals included transitioning from serving Christian schools through an eight-region model to a more streamlined and efficient divisional model that relies on the strategic deployment of field directors and trained volunteers across the country. The Western, Central, and Eastern Divisions will allow us to make staff who belonged to regional teams available to members outside those regions. It will help us address much of the redundancies and duplication of effort that characterized the old regional set-up, which will lead to better stewardship of the resources God has entrusted to us.
Advancing Kingdom education excellence is what makes ACSI an organization your school community can rely on. With a desire to optimize stewardship of staff, skills and services to ACSI member schools, we have created a divisional model for developing grass-roots engagement. This will provide strategic deployment of field directors and trained volunteers across the country for better local school support.

Purposeful Design Publications Releases New Dr. Alan Pue Book Highlighting the Importance of Christian Schooling and Discipling the Next Generation
“Rethinking Discipleship,” by Dr. Alan Pue, explores the importance of the Christian community in helping youth develop a lifelong relationship with Christ so they can truly flourish.
According to Dr. Larry Taylor, ACSI President, the book’s foundation is aligned with ACSI’s Flourishing Initiative—to cultivate a school culture that glorifies Christ and excels in knowing Him and making Him known.
“‘Rethinking Discipleship’ is a thought-provoking resource uniting parents, ministry leaders and Christian educators to shepherd children’s hearts and weave faith into every aspect of life,” Taylor said.
Throughout the text, Pue shows how the effective journey of discipleship is framed by biblical principles and is supported through the collaborative efforts of home, church and school.
“Readers will embark on a holistic, comprehensive, theologically driven exploration of one of the most significant issues of our time,” Pue said. “Evidence suggests the necessity of Christian schools to establish a firm foundation so that students are set up to have an eternal relationship with Christ.”
Pue has written two other books on Christian schooling that are available on the PDP website, “Rethinking Sustainability” and “Rethinking Strategic Planning.”
The new “Rethinking Discipleship” is available for purchase on the PDP site in digital and softcover format.

Since the mid-1980s, Purposeful Design Publications (PDP), a division of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), has provided resources and assessments, including academically rigorous textbooks that are intentionally rooted in biblical truth to equip schools and educators with the tools to eternally transform the hearts and minds of children.
