Parents are rising up against what their kids are learning. But will they replace it with a Bibical worldview?

Today I conclude my discussion with Nancy Fitzgerald, Founder and Executive Director of Anchors Away Ministry. She talks about how one Christian school utterly transformed their educational enviroment by incorporating Biblical worldview in all aspects of learning. And she shares how God used her struggle with breast cancer to teach her students the role of suffering in the lives of Christians.

Excerpt

Reuel Sample:
What do we need to do to get this worldview training at all levels, but we're specifically talking about kids, back on track.

Nancy Fitzgerald:
Well, there's a school called Central Christian Academy in Indianapolis and I met with them. Gosh, it hasn't even been a year ago, probably eight months ago for the first time, and they are wanted to change the way their school is running. They want to have the Christian influence, and they want biblical worldview school. They want a Christian worldview school. I said, Well, OK, it's going to be a journey. So I met eight weeks with a staff. Train them. They went online and I met with them every week to answer the questions and how this relates to running a school. Then we took their whole staff through it. They went online. I met with them every week to answer questions that they have. And what does this mean to teach math, social studies, geometry, science, whatever it is so they could integrate worldview into their system? And I can tell you, we had 100 percent participation from staff and the exec team, including some of the board. But I will tell you, the whole dynamics of that school have changed. I talk every other day, maybe to the the head CEO of that school, because I'm very interested to see how this is changing the way kids are learning. And he said it's a whole new world over there. And so that's one thing we can do. We've got to train the heads and we have to train the staff. And the same goes not only for Christian schools, but the churches. We can no longer be content. The parents have to rise up and the grandparents have to rise up and aunts and uncles saying no more are our kids going to waste their time in a church, playing games and doing crazy stuff? They want to learn.

Nancy Fitzgerald:
We have to teach them biblical worldview. We must insist that our kids are being taught worldview. And if they want to start with Anchors Away, great, do it go online, anchorsaway.org or find something else? But I am telling you we need to hold our pastors and our church, the people that are influencers in our church accountable. They don't know this stuff. We they can learn it online instantly. They can begin as to what we are doing because we see this need is huge and we know there are many pastors out there that want this stuff. They want to learn it. And I don't think they're happy with where their churches are in their growth.

Unanswered…Smoke, Mirrors, And God

Unanswered…Smoke, Mirrors, And God

Is there absolute Truth? If there is, can we know it? The answer to this question is not found in our opinions, nor is it found in religions that contradict one another. Then there is Jesus who says, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”

This study from Anchors Away Ministry will take you deeper in your faith as it will answer many questions about who you are through the eyes of Jesus, who God is as He defines Himself and what your purpose is in this life. Upon completing “Unanswered”, we expect you to be more informed about Jesus and the Bible, better responders to those who have questions and are in need answers and brighter lights that reflect Jesus by the way you live and love others.
