The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) is pleased to announce the Rooted Educator Worldview Summit, set for June 24-27, 2024, at the Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain, NC is sold out. This inaugural event, featuring renowned speakers including John Stonestreet and Dr. Sean McDowell, will equip more than 500 Christian educators to develop a Christlike school culture, facilitate healthy faith formation, and provide tools to engage secular ideology. 


ACSI President & CEO Dr. Larry Taylor is looking forward to this event. 


"We are thrilled to co-host the Rooted Educator Worldview Summit, an event that empowers Christian educators to integrate faith and learning deeply," he said. "This summit offers a unique opportunity for educators to grow spiritually and professionally, equipping them to impact students' lives and advance the Kingdom of God through education." 

Participants will benefit from keynote presentations, panel discussions, and breakout sessions for elementary, secondary, and school leaders. Speakers will cover a variety of topics including Biblical Authority & Application, The Lies of Expressive Individualism vs. Imago Dei, and more. 


ACSI Chief of Flourishing Initiatives Cindy Dodds shared why she believes this summit is such a relevant offering for educators. 


“In today’s culture, I can’t think of anything more important for educators than being equipped with the understanding and the tools needed to nurture students in their faith formation,” she said. “Our partnership with the Colson Center strengthens the content of the summit and allows us to tackle difficult cultural issues with strong biblical authority. Christian educators will gather by the hundreds to be challenged in their own faith as they navigate these cultural waters for the students they will influence.”
