Weekly Memo (March 9-13)

Museum of the Bible

I had a great time last week at the National Christian School Association conference in Washington, DC. It's always good to be with school leaders from other Christian schools that share a common mission, and it was really cool that our conference was at the Museum of the Bible.

This year's theme was "Consumers to Contributors," and we heard some amazing authors and speakers share their thoughts on how to engage our students more to become young men and women on fire for the Kingdom of God. The conference was very uplifting for me, and it helped remind of the mission of being a teacher at CAC.

If you ever get the chance to visit the Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC, I highly recommend it! My favorite exhibit was the Old Testament experience, which you can get a glimpse of below.
