The Education as Mission Forum is a dynamic group for all those interested in education as an expression of Christian mission. We are newly formed and are excited about the opportunities for collaboration and encouragement that this group offers. We are passionate about walking together with fellow brothers and sisters working out how we use education as a vehicle for mission.
We are a group that are committed to grow a network of educators and missions involving education to maximise impact and transformation. We are at a key stage where members can set the agenda so that no opportunity is lost for sharing of best practice and prayer. Research tells us that when we invest in school leadership, in teacher professional development and active networking of schools together, education outcomes improve sustainably and consistently.
We have an excellent opportunity to ensure that our schools receive the latest in education and missional thinking. We know that school is often a key place that brings communities together and establishing and growing a Christian presence in such a sphere is a great expression of kingdom.
At this first forum event in May we will briefly look at topics such as:
- Leadership development
- Teacher training and recruitment
- The funding challenge
- Sharing faith in restrictive settings
- Curriculum challenges
Our speakers include Roger Pearce (BMS World Mission), David Midwinter (TeachBeyond), Phil Hawkins (Aprender), John Baxter-Brown (Global Connections)
