Dave Larsen - Monday Speaker
Dave Larsen is deeply grateful for the blessing of Christian education in his life and the lives of family. He began his professional life in youth ministry, served Trinity Christian College as vice president for student development for nearly 20 years, Timothy Christian Schools in Illinois as development director for 12 years, and since 2010 has served as the director of the Bright Promise Fund for Urban Christian Education in Chicago, which strengthens urban schools by generating new sources of revenue and through a recently established collaboration with Trinity Christian College.
Dave is a graduate of Calvin College (BA English), Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (master's of religious education), and earned a Ph.D. in educational leadership and policy studies at Loyola University of Chicago.
On Monday evening Dave will be addressing the conference on the topic Calling, Encouragement, and Affirmation. A key element of the conference is to be refreshed and encouraged as school leaders. Dave will address the call to leadership in Christian schools, encouragement to leaders (and their spouses), and affirmation of the call to advance the kingdom of God.
