Join the Conversation! Calling Bible instructors, school chaplains, heads of school, principals and curriculum directors to participate in an invigorating day of dialogue, sharing of ideas, networking, and brainstorming solutions surrounding best practice in Bible instruction and spiritual formation in international Christian schools. This unique ICEC PreConference course originated out of a similar gathering with leaders from 17 influential international Christian schools in December 2017 at Black Forest Academy. Two full days were spent considering what is and is not working in our Bible instruction and spiritual formation practices in the international school context. The gathering was incredibly meaningful, but it created a thirst for deeper dialogue and continuing the conversation on a larger scale. This year's forum will include best practices in biblical instruction and Christian formation, dealing with the unique challenges of the international school setting, and creating a school culture that supports living faith in staff and students. Participants will be encouraged to share what they've experienced in their unique contexts, and the format will be highly interactive and collaborative. An online interest page will be created on the new ACSI Community Forum to keep the dialogue moving. Join us in seeking God's direction for how to cultivate authentic transformation at our schools.
