FROM YOUR REGIONAL DIRECTOR
"Come, ye thankful people, come. Raise the song of harvest of harvest home!" Thanksgiving provides us a national opportunity to pause for a couple days and take time to recount the blessings of God upon our lives. The giving of thanks is something that God's people should cultivate year round. I trust that you will have a marvelous time with family and friends to reflect on His provision in your lives. "To God be the glory, great things He has done!"
For your growth as an administrator, please consider the following: As a Christian school educator, we often find ourselves asking tough questions like:
- What must Christian schools and do to ensure their sustainability in challenging economic and cultural times?
- How can Christian schools prepare students to engage a rapidly changing, post-Christian culture?
- How can Christian schools respond to increasing legal and legislative challenges to religious freedom?
Please join the conversation that started at the Global Christian School Leadership Summit last February, where over 700 participants from K–12 schools, colleges and universities, early education programs, and non-profits engaged collaboratively to envision the future of Christian education. A new book titled PIVOT: New Directions for Christian Education captures the dialogue at the summit, with chapters devoted to each of the questions above and more. You'll find PIVOT to be an effective professional development resource—one that will set the stage for dialogue for years to come.
