2014 IICSE COMPLETED

The 44th International Institute for Christian School Educators is now in the past.  As always the event was the pinnacle of the Lowrie Center’s summer ministry as teachers and administrators from around the world gathered to be introduced to the biblical principles that form the philosophical basis for Christian school education.  This year’s delegates included emerging leaders and teachers from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, the Philippines, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Guadalupe and several southeastern states.  We extend thanks to Dr. Glen Schultz of Kingdom Ministries and Dr. Derek Keenan from ACSI for being this year’s featured speakers.  For those of you that could not attend, be sure to look for postings of several of this year’s keynote addresses.   It is not too early for you to begin planning for next summer’s event.  The Institute is an excellent way to begin inducting newly hired teachers and administrators.  The content, collaboration, and motivation gained through the IICSE experience continues to play an important role in the development of Christian schools worldwide.

The comments below will give you an idea of the delegates’ impression of the 2014 IICSE.

These are some of the responses to the question, “What do you think will be the most beneficial to you about the Institute?

  • The idea of “intentional” Biblical integration
  • The connections made with people and the support network that was built
  • Catching the passion and feeling more confident in the foundation and sharing the biblical foundation of Kingdom Education
  • Biblical integration and critical thinking
  • Providing a strong foundation for my leadership and a stronger foundation for my school. . .
  • Hearing from Giants of the Trade!

A Responsible Heart

An excerpt from A Teacher's Heart

by Dr. Roy W. Lowrie, Jr. (1984)

The sons of Jacob had gone down into Egypt for grain because the famine was sore in Israel. They presented their appeal to the governor, not realizing that he was their brother Joseph, whom they had sold years ago. Joseph recognized them, but did not identify…

A Prepared Heart

A Prepared Heart

An excerpt from A Teacher's Heart (1984)

by Dr. Roy W. Lowrie, Jr.

Short comments about a person are often found in the Bible which reveal why God used that person in a particular way. These comments are about the personal, private life of the person, not about the public life.

There is a comment like that about God’s servant, Ezra. “For Ezra…

Your word is a lamp to my feet

This is what the Lord says:

“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
    or the strong boast of their strength
    or the rich boast of their riches,
but let the one who boasts boast about this:
    that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,
    justice and righteousness on earth,
    for in these I delight,”

declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 9:23-24
