Not all Christians seeking to advance transformational education have the same priorities or methods. Please have a Berean attitude (Acts 17:11) when considering the content of this site and compare everything to the Scriptures. News, events and articles may highlight ideas that need to be confronted as well as adapted.

The news expressed in linked articles are included as potentially of interest to those involved in transformational education even though they do not necessarily reflect the values and views of the Centre.

Mr. Henry Toews was a longtime Janz Team/TeachBeyond missionary. He was a Canadian member who served faithfully at Black Forest Academy for 15 years. During this time, he introduced many of the ideas which today form the basis of TeachBeyond's ministry. Henry Toews helped to start EurECA, a European organization to encourage Christian education and teachers at all levels. He went on to serve for 12 exemplary years as a global educational consultant in partnership with ACSI. This, too, was a remarkably fruitful time of service which continues to directly benefit Christian schools in Europe and Africa. 

Henry Toews was CATE's first recipient of Outstanding Achievement in Christian Education Award given along with TeachBeyond.

We praise God for Henry and ask for prayer for his wife Elizabeth, his children and whole family.

The recent throne speech and provincial budget in Alberta commit to increasing the variety and types of schooling available to Alberta children — pluralism in education, in other words. The changes promise to make it easier to start charter schools and to ensure home-schooled children with special needs get the supports they need.
