Christian education is at a crossroads!
For decades, we have continued to struggle with what flourishing Christ-centered education looks like both within and beyond the walls of our campuses.
Data from the fall of 2021 reports that we are producing graduates who are disintegrated and disengaged. The time for talk and half-measures is over. We can no longer afford to repackage failed solutions with new terminology and expect different results.
Trying harder has never been a viable solution.
Since 2010, Wheaton Press has conducted the largest and longest ongoing study of this generation. We have been tracking students from 6th grade through graduation in Christian schools located in over 60 countries. With over 150,000 responses, coupled with thousands of hours of qualitative interviews with school leadership teams, and over 10,000 hours of exegetical study and application interacting with the pedagogical practices of Christ, we are humbled and burdened to support Christ-centered educators with a Christ-centered process of transformation that will lead to communities that Flourish By Design™.
Recognizing the three stages of educating the whole student (head, heart, and hands), Flourish By Design™ works within the natural theological and pedagogical process modeled by Christ in the Gospels and by each of the other New Testament writers who called Him their rabbi.
Our students have responded and informed us of the need to make seven critical shifts in our approach to Christ-centered education that will produce different results beyond the walls of our schools.
These seven shifts will be uncomfortable for some. Moving away from failed conventional practices, even when they are producing negative results, often requires more than simply being made aware of the need.
But if Christ-centered educators desire to fulfill their calling and see the Holy Spirit lead a resurgence in their schools and in the lives of their graduates, then after a close examination of the data and of Scripture, we believe you will be convicted, just as we have been, that the evidence demands a response.
Thankfully, Jesus not only left us a model of what needs to change but also provided us with a model for how to successfully participate and lead others through the process of transformation.
Flourish By Design™ is an invitation to a journey—a journey that is made in the context of a community of others who are like-minded and that follows a process that was designed and left for us by Christ for us to follow and communicate.
The Engaged Schools Initiative™ team has been praying for men and women of peace—leaders and their teams with hearts that God has already prepared who will see Him work in their unique circles of influence.
If God has entrusted you with the privilege and responsibility to equip your community to Flourish By Design™, then this is an opportunity that you will not want to miss out on.
