FROM YOUR REGIONAL DIRECTOR

How thankful I am to have attended two recent wonderful Professional Development Forums-one in O'Fallon, Missouri, and the other in San Antonio. Many thanks to Dr. Glen Schultz and Dr. Phil Johnson for delivering timely keynote addresses! And sincere thanks go to all the schools who came and engaged with each other, helping to set the high tone for these two events. Next on the schedule is the 2018 Leadership Conference for administrators and board members. Mark your calendars for January 28–30 at Moody Gardens in Galveston. Details will be coming very soon!

As a Christian school educator, do you find yourself asking tough questions like:

  • What must Christian schools 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?

If so, you're not alone. In fact, you can 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, 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.
