Making Creation Integral: A Christian Deeper Learning Gathering

Hosted by CSI
Monday, February 24, 2025, 8:00–3:00 p.m.

“And God saw all that he had made, and it was very good” (Genesis 1:31a NIV). This goodness that God saw at creation still permeates our broken world and tells part of the story of God’s work in our world. Come gather with fellow educators as we dive into teaching practices that invite and equip students to realize their part of God’s story. Together, we will engage in ways that allow students to be fully alive and embrace creation as they learn.

Held at Creation Village World School, participants will be led by several educational leaders doing great work, along with students from the school. Expect an active day of digging into learning, both figuratively and literally. Teams are encouraged to apply, and discounts are available if you bring a team.

Registration will open on August 1.
