Advance Christian Schools - A Mentoring approach to leadership development
By Harold Naylor
Christian schools have the opportunity to be premier institutions of redemptive education. However, many schools are struggling with enrollment declines, financial stresses and an inability to maintain their zeal for their Kingdom mission. Advance Christian Schools (ACS) is a ministry to Christian schools that employs a long-term coaching and mentoring approach in working with school leadership, rather than the more typical one-time consulting approach.
"Our goal is to help restore the educational excellence and worldview clarity of early Christian schools" says Harold Naylor, founder and co-director. Dr. Sandy Outlar and Dr. Alan Pue are co-directors and bring decades of experience to this process. "We will assist schools by using an experienced and godly team of coaches to mentor school leaders in a one-year relationship to provide instruction with accountability", Sandy explains. The mentored school will have access to the best person-to-person help plus access to a comprehensive Knowledge Base in the realm of Christian school thinking, practice and innovation.
The aim of Advance Christian Schools is to glorify God by employing this biblical approach along with experience for a resurgence of the Christian schooling movement.
