A Conference Like No Other
This is not just another Christian conference.  It’s a rallying cry for teachers, administrators, and education advocates to engage, collaborate, and lift up fervent prayer that will revolutionize our schools–if not the world.  We will converge from all parts of the city for worship, prayer, and exhortation through conference speakers and interactive break-out sessions. We will explore the spiritual battles in education from multiple perspectives: a teacher, a student panel, a pastor, a school district administrator, a religious rights attorney, and an education professor who lives near Ferguson, MO area where racial strife has reached its boiling point. Can we ever attain healing for our broken schools?  Yes, for we are TEACHERS WHO PRAY!
