SUMMIT SCHEDULE

Plan your weekend using the summit schedule below. Click on the title of each session for more details & to request a reminder.

You'll notice that sessions revolve around three main topics:

1. RISE UP INTO KINGDOM IMPACT

Discover practical ways to make a bigger difference - shining God's love and the light of His truths into your classroom - regardless of where you teach. 

2. RISE UP OUT OF FRUSTRATION

Our quest to impact our students can be quickly derailed by a sense of frustration, anxiety, or overwhelm. In these sessions, you'll learn how to overcome common frustrations and teach with joy and balance. And the result? A light that shines brighter than ever.

3. RISE UP INTO EXCELLENCE

Scripture exhorts us to work with all our heart, as unto the Lord. To that end, these sessions will provide practical strategies to make you a more effective teacher or educational leader.
