Rocky Creek LogoNorth Greenville University (NGU) is taking its mission of graduating transformational leaders for church and society into the local churches through strategic partnerships. NGU has partnered with Rocky Creek Church in Greenville to offer graduate ministry courses through the church’s Entrust Institute, a new leadership development program. The partnership began in January.

NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr., says that North Greenville University was birthed by local churches and maintains a close relationship with local churches.

“Foundational to our mission is the equipping of transformational leaders for the church and this program is an outgrowth of that vision,” said Dr. Fant. “Just as Dr. Agnew is a transformational leader at his church and as a former chair of the NGU board, this program prepares promising leaders by offering practical experiences in day-to-day ministry.”

Alton, IL – In his first legal opinion as Virginia’s Attorney General, Jason Miyares opined that the Code of Virginia does not grant Virginia’s state colleges and universities the power to require the COVID-19 vaccine as a general condition of enrollment or in-person attendance.

“Although the General Assembly specifically authorized public institutions of higher education to assist the Department of Health and local health departments in the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine, the legislation did not grant such institutions power to impose vaccine requirements,” said Miyares.

“We are thrilled that right out of the gate, Attorney General Miyares is defending Virginians against unlawful overreach from unelected bureaucrats,” said Eagle Forum President Colleen Holcomb. “We hope other Attorneys General throughout the country will follow suit.”

Converge, March 8-10 in San Diego, comes as U.S. Christian K-12 school enrollment is rising substantially. Conference organizers are focusing on bridging divides and embracing change in teaching and learning in the wake of major shifts in society.

SAN DIEGO -- While coronavirus has led to fewer students in public schools, a group of 12 major associations of Christian educators is readying a conference that will help bridge divides and embrace change in teaching and learning amid increased enrollment at faith-based institutions.

The host organizations for "Converge 2022: Leading Courageously, Renewing Hope" include the Association of Christian Schools International, which had a 12% jump in enrollment at its affiliated primary and secondary schools last year. Classical Christian and Roman Catholic schools also have reported gains.

"The last two years have shown the advantage Christian schools have in being nimble in serving students and their families with excellence," says Lynn Swaner, Converge chairperson.

Maybe Democrats have decided that they don't need parents to win elections. That certainly wasn't the case in Virginia, where Glenn Youngkin (R) was just inaugurated as governor because his opponent thought schools knew better than moms and dads. And it probably won't be the case in Michigan either, but that hasn't stopped the state's tone-deaf Democrats from telling parents to get out of education -- and stay out.

"Not sure where this 'parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids' is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire," the Michigan Democratic Party posted over the weekend. "The purpose of public education in public schools is not to teach kids only what parents want them to be taught. It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client of the public school is not the parent -- but the entire community, the public."
