Professional Development Forum 2017

September 28, 2017–November 22, 2017

Our Professional Development Forums are two-day events for Christian educators who believe in equipping students to impact the world for Christ. At your local forum, extraordinary speakers will challenge and encourage you as you discover innovative ideas, practices and programs founded on biblical principles.
