CEN National Conference & AGM


The CEN National Conference (which includes the AGM for member associations) is a pivotal event in the life of CEN and its members. We are excited to be bringing you a challenging and exciting time of fellowship and learning. This year our theme is Faithful Presence. What does it mean to hold the posture of Faithful Presence in service to the Lord in Christian Education? This will be unpacked during the conference. Once again, we encourage you to send more than one member of your board and leadership team to this conference

Late last year we announced Rod Thompson as the newly appointed Principal of the National Institute for Christian Education and we welcome Rod as our guest speaker at the conference. Together with others from our team, including Chris Prior, Chris Parker, and Kathy Pereira, they will bring some great insights into what is happening in Christian Education in the areas of leadership, governance, teaching and learning, and political challenges.

The Saturday evening dinner will be an opportunity to celebrate the 40th birthday of the National Institute, and we welcome Ken Dickens as the guest speaker for that evening. For 40 years, the Institute has had a wonderful effect on the lives, development and training of thousands of teachers, educators and boards. It will be a lovely celebration and will include many of our current and past lecturers and adjunct lecturers.

Please refer to the paperwork package emailed to your Principal and Board Chair for further conference details, particularly around nominations for our National Board.
