The KC Educators network includes teachers, administrators and others who work with elementary school, middle school, high school and/or college students. It is a diverse citywide network which includes the entire KC metro area that is focused on both local and global mission in the context of Christian education.
A key objective is to increase the local and global Kingdom impact of the KC-area citywide Body of Christ as Christian educators network together rand collaborate in ministry as the Holy Spirit leads and to pay attention to the ministry priorities expressed by the KC Christian Educators Missional Network participants.
This gathering will include a time of networking and at least one or two featured presentations. Each attendee will need to pay $10 online or at the door, in the form of cash or check. Dinner is included. We hope you can join us!
