Developing our Leaders

I had a wonderful privilege 2 weeks ago to attend the annual CEN Developing Leaders Conference. I spent time with many enthusiastic, emerging, and existing, leaders who were completely immersed in a time of learning, growth, and reflection. We can be confident that God is preparing the leaders of Christian schools for tomorrow through avenues like the Developing Leaders Conference. The theme? Movers and Shapers; how very appropriate!
