Despite the challenges and uncertainties through this COVID period, Christian educators from around the world are hoping to come together in March 2022 for Converge 2022, a global gathering of Christian education leaders (formerly known as the Global Christian School Leadership Summit, or GCSLS) to be held in San Diego, California.
The prayer of all those planning Converge 2022 is that it would be a time of en-couragement—literally, “to put courage in”—for the Christian school movement worldwide, in keeping with the apostle Paul’s instructions in 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV)
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.”
We are already encouraged by the distinctives of the upcoming 2022 event, including:
- The broadest group of host organizations—totaling 12—since the event’s inception in 2017;
- A new event name and branding, to capture the energy from these organizations and their educators as they “converge” in 2022; and most importantly,
- A Christ-centered commitment—as reflected in the event theme—to tackle the challenges that are most pressing in our communities, through courageous conversation and redemptive action.
While you may have completed a “save the date” form in the past few weeks, we are pleased to announce that early registration for Converge opens today, with a discounted rate of $429 per registrant (which is $70 off the regular price of $499; note that we are opening registration early at the request of many U.S. schools who have shared they have PD funds remaining in this year’s budget). Register yourself and your team at the event website here, as well as find the link for hotel reservations at the Town and Country Resort in San Diego.
Along with hundreds of Christian educators around the globe, we hope you’ll plant a small seed of courage today—and trust in faith that our God who gives the increase (1 Corinthians 3:7) will cause it to germinate, grow, and ultimately culminate in a hope-filled, life-giving gathering next year!
Christian educators from across the world will explore how schools can lead courageously in their communities—by bridging divides, restoring wholeness, acting justly, embracing change, and empowering students—all from the hope we find in Christ.
