IELC 2017 Report

This second conference was held in Budapest from the 1st to the 4th of March with the theme: "Leading from the Heart". Four plenary sessions, 10 workshops in 2 sessions and a panel discussion with the speakers made this conference inspiring for everyone!

The Conference was a blessing, thanks also to your prayers, for the 185 school directors from 24 nations. The four plenary sessions touched on different aspects of leadership in Christian schools and the workshops focused on the practical applications of Christian leadership. The debate with the speakers allowed us to ask all kinds of questions about leadership in Christian schools.

Outside of the conference sessions, there were two opportunities to make connections, to develop partnerships between the Christian schools represented. Some of the school representatives were able to display brochures and other materials, while the other participants made contact and visited the displays. On the second day, the previous day's visitors were in turn occupying stands with their displays.

Each person in the photo represents a nation. We are committed to praying for one another, all of us part of the global leadership community of Christian schools.
May God continue to use Christian schools for the advancement of His Kingdom. " that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" 2 Tim 3:17
