At that time many will turn away from the faith . . . Because of the increase of wickedness,the [agape] love of many will grow cold. But he who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 24: 10a, 12GraceWorks exists to create, build-up and restore ministriesthat God wants to use abundantly to prepare rock-solid disciples for today's end-times world. Strong Christian schools will play a crucial role in developing this new generation of Christian leaders. GraceWorks' goal is to partner with like-minded ministries — those with a burning desire to improve and grow. GraceWorks will help these ministries acquire the spiritual, human and material resources God provides to accomplish His complete purposes. GraceWorks' initial priority is Christian elementary schools and Christian high schools, recognizing the Biblical truth that: Train a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6With innovative and creative strategies, GraceWorks will focus on the most critical barriers to Christian school excellence, including school finance, student marketing and enrollment, fundraising and development, visioning and leadership, and ministry expansion. In short, GraceWorks will help: •Create excellent Christian schools where needed, •Restore dying Christian schools to organizational health, and •Take healthy Christian schools to excellence. GraceWorks' Long-Term Vision GraceWorks' 2016 year goal is to become a recognized national leader in starting, expanding and improving Christian schools in America. Our 2035 goal is to substantially impact for good the organizational life and health of 10,000 Christian schools. The Daniel Generation We believe that God is raising up a generation of leaders of the caliber of Daniel, Moses, and Paul -- the most well educated and spiritual leaders of the Bible. The King talked with them, and he found none equal to Daniel Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah; so they entered the king's service. In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom. Daniel 1: 19,20Three times a day Daniel got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before. Daniel 6:10This Daniel Generation will change the very course of history, and quite possibly complete the Great Commission in their lifetime. For these future leaders, our Christian schools must be schools of excellence!
