2023 Urban School Leaders' Gathering: Flourishing in the City

Embassy Suites by Hilton Charlotte/Concord, Concord, NC  
Thursday, June 22, 2023 - Friday, June 23, 2023   iCalendar Eastern Standard Time

Whether you join the Flourishing Schools Institute June 20-22 or not, ACSI and Spreading Hope Network invite you to a retreat gathering of current or emerging school leaders and teachers serving an urban school environment.

This engaging time will cover three topics:

  • The Leader and Teacher’s Purpose
  • The Leader and Teacher as Steward
  • The Leader and Teacher as Servant

The aim of the time is fellowship, refreshment, and strategic consultation on issues you are facing. The heart of our time together will be small group “Consultancy Sessions” to help you gather insight from fellow leaders and teachers on a practical or strategic issue you are facing in your school. Our prayer is that each leader and teacher will leave with renewed zeal, deepened insights, and new peers to reach out to in the future.
