Heartland Christian Educators meet
SIOUX CENTER, Iowa -- The Heartland Christian Educators’ Convention will take place Oct. 5 and 6 on Dordt College’s campus.
This year's convention centers around Isaiah 33:6, which says, “He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure.”
The 450 educators from Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota and South Dakota will be challenged to build a “Firm Foundation”—this year’s theme.
Dr. Rick Wormeli is Thursday’s keynote speaker, who will present, “Sure Footing in a Shaky World: Best Practices in Today’s Classrooms that Stand the Test of Time.” Dordt College Dean of Chapel Aaron Baart is Friday’s keynote speaker, who will elaborate on the Convention theme verse.
Attendees can choose from more than 65 group sessions from local presenters and those from Illinois, Minnesota, and Michigan.
The public is invited to attend the worship and keynote speeches from 9:15 to 10:45 a.m. on Thursday and from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on Friday. These all take place in the B.J. Haan Auditorium.
