As a leader in a Christian school, you have a unique and important role. The Christian Schools Canada Conference 2024 aims to inspire and equip you as a Christian school leader to navigate your leadership journey with your focus on Christ as the ultimate source of hope. How do you keep your community from getting stuck in division and conflict? How can you remain grounded and hospitable? What steps can you take right now towards being a leader who is Called vocationally into Christian school leadership, who is Connected relationally to enable the flourishing of children, adults, teams, and communities, and who is Committed to sustaining long-term engagement in realizing a vision of Christian education?

We invite you to dialogue and explore these questions and more through 2 days of keynotes, breakout sessions, networking, and times of refreshment with your fellow school leaders across the country.
