CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION MONTH
OCTOBER 28, 2019
In 2003, the United States House of Representatives passed a resolution honoring October as Christian Higher Education Month. While 16 years have passed since this resolution was introduced, October still remains an important month as we have the opportunity to recognize hundreds of colleges and universities that are committed to Christ-centered education. I had the privilege of working with three such institutions in my career, all of which are associated with the Association for Biblical Higher Education and/or the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, and continue to develop Christian leaders for the 21st Century who can think, live, and serve effectively in the Church and the world. I have wonderful memories of working with hundreds and hundreds of students who are now making a difference as a result of the education they received at these institutions. In semi-retirement, I am now working with leaders from many different Christian higher education institutions through consulting activities such as executive coaching, strategic planning, and accreditation support. I count it a privilege to advance the cause of Christ-centered higher education.
