About the Event
1 Corinthians 15:58
"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord."
Join us as we explore a biblical philosophy of education to prepare our students for what comes after high school. Whether that be working or attending college or university, how can we help our students get to where Christ is leading them while maintaining a biblical worldview?
