Come and be inspired about how we can contribute to make a lasting impact in education. Together, we will explore and ponder the following questions:

  • What is the purpose of education?
  • What kind of students do we want to enter the world?
  • How can we help reshape education so that students enter the world well-equipped?
  • How do we create a lasting effect?
  • How can education influence our culture for Christ?
  • What role do parents, families, and our elders have in education?

The purpose of this event is to gather anyone who understands how important education is and how it affects both individuals and our communities at large. Please plan to attend this important and potentially life-changing event!

Everyone is welcome – please invite others to join us too!
