Teachers Conference

Dates: 
Oct 13, 2017 to Oct 15, 2017
In October, Faith Builders hosts a weekend conference for K-12 educators. The Teachers Conference focuses on providing content and enrichment for long-term teachers serving conservative Anabaptist schools.

Conference Theme

Our theme is one in a series on “Cornerstones of Anabaptist Schools.” As followers of Christ, we believe that life is to be lived in close, productive relationships with others. At a congregational level, we call this brotherhood. Brotherhood flows out of the teachings in Scripture that call our relationships to each other to be transformed by the work of Christ. Barriers are broken down between us, and we become family members when we enter God’s kingdom. Instead of looking out for our own interests, we look out for the interests of others (Phil. 2:4).

We believe our schools should also reflect this value of brotherhood, though it will be expressed differently than in the congregational context. In his presentations, Daryl Weaver (Ephrata, PA) will explore the scriptural foundation for brotherhood and its expressions in the school and classroom.
