Rocky Mountain Snapshot
Rocky Mountain, May 2018
FROM YOUR REGIONAL DIRECTOR
Isn't perspective wonderful? With the end of the school year appearing on the horizon and the end of the year events and processes coming up to speed, I know you are both encouraged by the approaching conclusion point and deeply focused on next year. I suspect you have been closely monitoring your re-enrollment data, running and updating next year's budget, and pondering emerging staffing changes.
Our prayer for each of you is that you will finish strong, serving Christ well up to the end of the year, and establish a clear vision for next year. As a side note, for those programs who have completed their accreditation site visit or renewal visit this spring, hats off to you for all the hard work.
Sincerely, Jerry Bowen - Regional Director, Rocky Mountain
P.S. Since the Maundy Thursday Day of Prayer, we have received many amazing reports from schools all over the world about answered prayer. One Christian school in the Northeast region of the US shared that they were about to be foreclosed upon because of a large debt they weren't able to pay. Since they asked the Christian school movement to pray for them, God has provided a donor to pay their entire debt and enable the school to continue their ministry. Praise the Lord! Consider encouraging others by sharing stories of answered prayers on social media using the hashtag #SchoolsThatPray.
Leadership Learning Communities via Zoom
As mentioned in the past letter, we are going to roll out a set of presentations just for regional school leaders. You will be able to gather digitally from your location and hear from strategic and significant voices to help strengthen and equip you in your leadership. Here is the current offering moving into the summer. Yes, I know that LLC means something else, but it still works for us when we consider cultivating the Christian school leader community.
- May 29: Dr. Tom Cathey - Liability issues for schools, Part 1
- Early June: Dr. Tom Cathey - Liability issues, Part 2
No need to travel or buy a plane ticket. Just fire up your office or home computer, tablet, or smartphone. Plan on becoming a part of these regional LLC's-Leadership Learning Communities.
