Building on the Foundation

What do we mean when we say we want our students to be Christ-like?

Sponsored by:
NorthWest Christian Schools International & Alta Vista

August 20, 2002

NWCSI’s second annual August event for teachers new to the District and for returning teachers who want to engage in a common conversation about equipping students to engage God’s world in a manner modeled and mandated by our LORD.  

You are invited to join with teachers across the District to discuss what we mean when we day we want our students to be Christ-like.  What are the attributes we are looking for?  How can we describe these to our students in kid-language?  Where and how in our programs can we provide opportunities and challenges to grow in understanding and embodying these attributes?  How can we assess if students are growing toward these attributes?

Rob Jansons, Pastor of New Hope Fellowship in Monroe, WA will assist us in this discussion by suggesting some attributes implied by the life and work of Jesus.  We will further the discussion through use of film, music, and small group activities.


"The foundation has been laid.  The musical score has been written.  Our task is to build the house, to play the score."  (N.T. Wright in The Challenge of Jesus )


       Washington State Clock Hours available.
