ECCEN (European Conference for Christian Education in the Netherlands) organise conferences for school leaders and teachers of Christian Schools across Europe, drawing together different cultures, nationalities and professions within Christian education.
ECCEN is committed to playing an active role in bringing together all the individual threads of Christian education to foster knowledge, promote the exchange of expertise and to strengthen each other for the future.
The reason why we organize these conferences:
ECCEN is organised by the following organisations:
Driestar Christian University
Driestar Christian University(Gouda) is a centre of knowledge for Christian education (University for Teacher Education, Educational Advice Centre and Management Advice Centre).
Jacobus Fruytier Scholengemeenschap
Jacobus Fruytier Scholengemeenschap (Apeldoorn) is a Christian school for secondary education.
VGS is an organization (Ridderkerk) that supports boards and governors of Christian schools in the Netherlands.
Various European school leaders, school policymakers, consultants, politicians and other people who have a leadership role in education are kindly invited to participate in this European Conference. The conference will be in English.
We hope to encourage and equip every participant in his or her role for the benefit of Christian education. During the conference there will be a lot of time for knowledge exchange, sharing faith and much more. We hope and pray that after this conference everybody will return home inspired and strengthened by God.
