The Christian Education Initiative (CEI) held its annual strategic planning session at FACE on August 9th and 10th. The Foundation for American Christian Education is one of 20 member organizations, including The Providence Foundation, Exodus Mandate, The Old Schoolhouse, Family Renewal Ministries, New Geneva Christian Leadership Academy, Constitution Leadership Initiative, Deconstructing the Coliseum, Nehemiah Institute, Henricus Colledge 1619, and Renewanation.
The Christian Education Initiative (CEI) is a Bible-based, evangelical alliance of member organizations whose purpose is to advance the Kingdom of God by growing Christian education, thus helping to fulfill the Great Commission (Mt. 28:18-20) and the cultural mandate (Gen. 1:28-29; Mt. 5:13-14). The vision of CEI is the restoration of American culture life being conformed to Biblical principles as it was for approximately the first 250 years of our nation’s history.
This planning session was the first such event since the formation of CEI last year. The member organizations were joined by 20 guests from around the country representing like-minded organizations. CEI will expand its membership in the near future in order to accomplish its ambitious goal of dramatically expanding k-12 Christian education in America.
The strategic planning session was a huge success with the networking of CEI members with leaders of ten major ministries. Planning sessions were held and we made progress in the areas of:
- Fundraising, marketing and development and social media
- Continuing the momentum of the 2019 Alex Newman National Christian Education Tour and distribution of the New American Magazine Special Edition on Christian Education
- Planning for a National Christian Education Conference
- Planning strategies for higher education, winning and recruiting teachers, and interfacing with homeschool networks
- Promoting and expanding funding opportunities such as church Christian school scholarship programs and tax credit scholarship programs
- Strategies to partner with pastors and churches
Please pray for CEI, as we believe it can be a major force for revival and reformation in our nation by promoting and expanding Biblical Christian education.
