Brookhaven, PA, May 3, 2007 - DiscoverChristianSchools.com fully supports the resolution that was released yesterday by the Southern Baptist Convention as Dr. Frank Page, SBC President, called for more churches to start Christian Schools and to financially assist those families who cannot afford to send their children to Christian schools.
The call to expand Christian education is not only gaining momentum within the Southern Baptist Convention, but crosses all denominational lines as well. "This call for an 'exodus' from public schools is foundational to solidifying the biblical worldview that we want to pass on to our children and more importantly, we want to give our children the opportunity to make that worldview decision for themselves. We just don't see the public school system providing the best atmosphere for that to take place," stated Harold Naylor, Director of Institutional Advancement for The Christian Academy and co-founder of DiscoverChristianSchools.com, the communications arm of the Mid-Atlantic Christian School Association.
As quoted from the SBC news sources, "Dr. Voddie Baucham notes, 'Dr. Page's call for more Christian schools is the beginning of the "exit strategy" that Dr. Mohler has urged be developed. If the SBC and American Christianity are to survive in any culturally relevant way, we are going to have to repent of our unfaithfulness in the education of our children. And we need to do this sooner rather than later.'
