Colorado Springs, Colo.– The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) is pleased to announce the appointment of Kurt Unruh as the new Senior Vice President for Global Business Development.

In alignment with ACSI’s “Three Pillar” strategic plan, Unruh’s primary responsibilities will be to develop initiatives that expand the organization’s programs, products, and services to ensure greater economic growth for the continued funding of its mission.

In addition, he will oversee the connectedness of vision, global strategy, IT platforms, and effective synergies across all ACSI offices and partnerships to enhance overall impact.

He began his role Aug. 2, 2021.

1606327204080Unruh joins ACSI with more than 15 years of experience in Christian education. He founded Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado in 2006, and has since grown enrollment to more than 1,000 students. Unruh also led the school in earning ACSI exemplary accreditation— a higher, more rigorous tier of accreditation. 

ACSI President Dr. Larry Taylor believes Unruh will greatly contribute to the global mission of ACSI.

“Kurt Unruh is one of the most respected servant leaders in the country, and Valor is considered one of the top Christian schools,” he shared. “He has a vision to increase access to Kingdom education around the world.”

Before his time at Valor, Unruh served as an attorney in private practice focusing on business startups and charitable organizations.

Unruh looks forward to assuming his new duties.

“My vision for this role is that ACSI’s business development opportunities, new initiatives and strategic advancements would meet the moment of our movement,” Unruh said. “The Christian school movement is growing in connectiveness, and I look forward to helping provide more resources to strengthen its mission around the globe.”

Taylor believes this position will benefit Christian schools worldwide.

“ACSI has never had a position like this nor a person with Kurt’s skills and gifts,” he said. “This is a big day for ACSI but more importantly, for Christian education.”
