Kingdom School Institute (KSi)

Information

The Kingdom School Institute is a very unique training program that assists you and your school in adopting a strategic, intentional and holistic plan that directly impacts the culture of your community. We are committed to a training paradigm and educational model that prepares our students to enter the world thinking Christianly (2 Cor. 10:5), reasoning with other worldviews (Acts 17), persuading others to follow Christ (Acts 17), and thinking, writing and speaking critically and intelligently.

This is not just another Christian school conference. Building a Kingdom School Institute features a distinct and specific focus: training Christian school leaders in how to build a Kingdom school based on the biblical philosophy of "Kingdom Education." We equip Christian school leaders with a biblical philosophy of education, and assist them in developing a comprehensive, intentional plan to drive this philosophy into key influences of their school culture.

We fully believe that authentic devotion to the Christian faith and academic excellence are mutually reinforcing. There are not two or three forms of excellence, but rather an ethos that is cultivated throughout every facet of our school. Faith is not separated from learning but rather integrated intentionally resulting in a distinctive Christian worldview. Scholarship and learning become integral components to the maturation process known as discipleship. Thus, becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ, the ultimate objective of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20) is the prize for which we strive—it is the highest form of excellence! It is conceivable that we could produce students with the spiritual depth needed to enter our pluralistic society and not fall prey to empty philosophies, but enter the marketplace God has called them to with confidence, purpose and an eternal perspective.

Delegates attending KSi will leave secure with the knowledge that the key to building a Kingdom School rests in developing an intentional plan that includes:

• Commitment to the Kingdom Education philosophy of education in all areas of the school
• Defining a Kingdom-focused culture
• Intentionally promoting a Kingdom-focused culture
