At HMCC, we have always believed in transformation. It always starts with a life being transformed by the Gospel message and then rippling out to various parts of the world. This is one of the reasons why we have started the Transformasphere Movement. We believe that as we engage some of the key spheres of society, then we will be able to penetrate into the society and bring positive change.
Education is one specific sphere of society that we have to engage in if we are serious about bringing transformation to the next generation. It is through education where a person develops their mind and gains the necessary tools to make a significant contribution to the world.
We want to keep on raising up people in our churches who are in the educational field. We would love to see people who are passionate about seeing the educational sphere as an avenue to bring the reality of God’s Kingdom here on earth. This means that we need to keep on developing educators in their relationship with Christ, as well as empowering them to start up new ventures. As we keep on building our coalition of teachers in all our HMCC churches, it will be exciting to see what they will be able to do in the future.
I started to think about this again because I read a Newsweek article that was written a year and a half ago. It chronicled a woman who was determined to bring reform to the worst school system at that time (Washington, D.C.). You can read the article here. It is pretty inspiring and the things that she was proposing were very innovative.
You can also watch a Charlie Rose interview with her about some of the controversy that she and her team proposed. Start at 00:25:30.
