Jesus said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10b, ESV). What ought the abundant life of Christ look like in our schools—particularly in today’s global, interconnected, technology-driven, and fast-changing world? How can Christian schools innovate, excel, and ultimately grow in their mission and practices for a new era?

Bring your team to GCSLS 2019 and join leaders from all levels of Christian education (early education, elementary, secondary, and higher education) from more than 25 countries to explore these questions. Co-sponsored by eight Christian school associations and multiple Christian colleges, universities, and organizational partners, GCSLS is the premier place to share best practices and connect with inspirational experts to stimulate innovative growth at your school.


January 30–February 1, 2019
The Summit begins with welcome receptions at 4 p.m. on the 30th followed by an opening program at 6 p.m.; it concludes at 3:30 p.m. on the 1st.
