Throughout the year, new training opportunities will be offered by A.C.E. in the United States. Two of these seminars, the Educational Leadership Summits (ELS) and Christian Educators’ Seminars (CES), are designed to encourage educators and give the best information for administering the A.C.E. curriculum. School administrators should prayerfully consider having staff attend these important events.
Educational Leadership Summits
Designed for leaders whose educational ministries use the A.C.E. program, the Educational Leadership Summit is a series of exclusive events held in a few select cities. Pastors, administrators, principals, school board members, and their spouses are welcome to attend. The workshops serve as a time of refreshment through inspiration and fellowship. Attendees experience “iron sharpening iron” when like-minded Christian leaders come together with a single heart and purpose and are motivated personally and encouraged spiritually. Participants will receive an official A.C.E. Leadership Training Certificate upon completion of the ELS.
The cost of registration is $10 per person (materials fee), with a maximum fee of $50 per school. Participants may register on the day of the summit or may preregister online. (The registration fee is not required at the time of preregistration.) Visit aceministries.com/leadership-summit for more information.
Christian Educators’ Seminars
The Christian Educators’ Seminars are one-day, stand-alone workshops open to all school staff using the A.C.E. program regardless of roles and responsibilities. Scheduled at 19 locations, inspirational and informative workshops will give helpful tips and methods for using the A.C.E. curriculum.
More information and the opportunity to register can be found at aceministries.com/ces. A nonrefundable registration fee of $5 per person is required to reserve a seat. Staff registering for the four-day Supervisors’ Training will be automatically registered for CES, and the $5 fee will be waived. Seating is limited in all locations, so only advance registration will guarantee a seat. Registration for all training sessions will close when the available seats are filled or on the prior Thursday at midnight. A seat is not reserved until payment is made, so travel plans should not be made before reserving a seat in the training session.
The library of online videos continues to grow at the Educators’ Workshop. These educational workshops are available to everyone and can be watched anytime. Session topics include running a Virtual Learning Center, helping students deal with difficulties, and promoting personal spiritual development. These workshops are available at aceministries.com/workshop.
