I am enjoying the mental health topics. They are helping personally, and how I interact with my students. My favorite saying is "School does not define you but God defines you." I want my students to realize that even though school is a struggle for them, God has a plan for their lives.

"The summit connected me with Christians that have the same vision I have to stand for Christ in the classroom and [gave me] new ways to do that and stand strong, yet respectful."

I have been encouraged to come together with other Christian educators and presenters and be lifted up, challenged in my faith and walk with the Lord, challenged to be a better teacher, and encouraged to keep on working for the Lord in this harvest field.

Our Vision

At Christian Educators Association and Teach 4 the Heart, we share the same vision.

We believe that teaching is an important calling and that God has you right where you are for a reason.

Christian Educators Association International + Teach 4 the Heart

But that doesn’t mean it’s easy.

Challenges abound, the enemy seeks to discourage us, and we feel alone – sometimes struggling to see exactly what God is trying to do on our campus.

That’s why together we’re creating this virtual summit – to encourage and equip Christian educators in both public and private schools.

To bring us together and create a community around our shared goals and mission.

And to raise up a generation of teachers and educational leaders who will step out in faith and embrace God’s heart for their classrooms, students, and schools.

We hope you can join us online October 21 - 26!

YES, I'm Ready to Rise Up!

Find the clarity, hope & solutions you need to fulfill your calling in this crazy year!
