Christian Educators Summit

This long weekend will uplift your teachers' hearts
& equip them to fulfill their mission
by the power of God's grace.

Walk away encouraged, inspired, and equipped to make a bigger difference in your students’ hearts and lives.

Discover practical solutions that show how to rise up out of the anxiety, frustration, and fear that often overwhelm us.

And be better equipped to teach by drawing on our faith, trusting God and following His lead each day in the classroom.

Our Vision

At Christian Educators 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.

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 17 - 22!

Registration will Open in Summer 2024


However you can enjoy lifetime access to these sessions or all current and future teachers by purchasing an All-Access School License.
