A Word From our Institute Director, David Gray
As many may already be aware, the National Institute for Christian Education turns 40 next year. In the lead-up to this milestone, we continually thank God for His provision and sovereign hand over such an important piece of the CEN movement.
To be involved in training up our teachers in ways that take seriously the public truth of the gospel is both an honour and privilege.
One of the greatest encouragements in this particular ministry is the manner in which Institute students (our teachers and administrators) lives are changed. Institute students regularly reflect that on the back of their study with the Institute that they were more energised, more passionate, and found their task in Christian education more manageable as a result of their study. Hearts are changed and for many, the Bible cuts through in ways that it never had before.
We continue to encourage all our school decision makers to deeply consider staff members placed under their care who will benefit and grow through engagement with the National Institute. Thank you to the many schools across the CEN network (and beyond) who faithfully continue to invest in their postgraduate training arm.
In conclusion, as an Institute, we continue to reflect on, thank God for, and celebrate the life and contribution of Stuart Fowler. The National Institute is better off for having the likes of Stuart as part of such a rich history.
