Dear Praying Friends of ACSI Europe,
Warmest greetings to you from the staff of ACSI Europe! we trust that you are doing well.
We are very much encouraged by what the Lord is doing in our midst for Christian school education. Your continued support and prayers are much appreciated.
We'd like to give you a short summary of some of the major events that are shaping our Christian schools. 
In January Laci Demeter and Paul Madsen participated in important meetings in the European Parliament in Brussels about "Legal Implications of Gender Ideology". During these meetings we listened to important reports and presentations by Christian Members of the EU Parliament and representatives of other Christian organizations. These reports and presentations were followed by discussions on how Christian schools may be able to protect themselves against the increasingly hostile political agenda.
During the same trip in January, Paul and Laci also visited four Christian schools in the Netherlands. ACSI Europe has been developing a partnership agreement with a group of the Dutch Christian schools in the past year, and we hope to have the official signing of this document at the International Educational Leadership Conference in Budapest on March 1-4.
We are excited about the many opportunities that these partnerships provide for international collaboration at multiple levels: school leaders, teacehrs, students,.and collaborative projects.
Pictures above are from our visits to the Dutch Christian schools.

At the beginning of February, Laci was blessed to attend the Global Christian School Leadership Summit in Orlando along with 730 other Christian school leaders from 23 countries. It was such a blessing to see what the Lord is doing globally through the Christian school movement. 
The conference theme was Encouraged in Heart—Strengthened in Unity—Equipped with Knowledge and Wisdom. 
It was a special blessing to learn more about how to organize high quality conventions for Christian school leaders.
As a response to the needs identified during our visits to our partner schools in the Netherlands, Germany, and our member schools in general, ACSI is launching a new program that integrates several services, and provides a unique opportunity for our member schools for professional growth, biblical integration and international collaboration at teacher and student levels. We are very excited about using our e-Learning platform as the engine for this new program. Please pray that many schools, teachers, and students will be blessed through their participation. Visit our website for more information.
We are very excited about our second ever International Educational Leadership Conference, that we are privileged to host in Budapest from March 1-4, 2017.
The conference is fully booked, and will host 190+ Christian school leaders from 24 countries.
Please pray for the speakers as they prepare for this important event, and for all the participants that they may be encouraged and blessed through the conference, both spiritually and professionally.
Our keynote speakers will come from ACSI, the Netherlands, and Germany.
