The Networks at Schools United

Find your people. See what God can do.

Do you have a peer network? A group of Christian educators who understand your niche? Who’ll collaborate and pray with you?

You may rely on a small group of co-workers. But imagine that group extending across your county, your state, and beyond.

What could God do then?

Imagine the connections you’d make. The ideas you could generate. The problems you could solve. How your students would benefit. Imagine blessing others far outside your local community. How could God use you to further His kingdom by collaborating with other Christian educators?

Our vision at Schools United is to foster a peer network for every Christian school leader, faculty, and staff member across the globe.

Join Schools United today to get connected with educators just like you. Your people.

Then see what God can do.

Stronger Together

Schools United can help you find your people.

Schools United Network FAQs

Networking, building relationships, learning from one another. That’s the idea behind Schools United. And as God’s word says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17) That means that we make each other better by sharing our knowledge with each other and by building relationships with each other.

We want to see a professional peer network (that’s a fancy way of saying a group of people with similar jobs getting together in person or via Zoom) for Christian school faculty and staff in every area of the nation (really the world, but we’ll take it one step at a time). You can be a part of bringing this vision to life!

If you are interested in joining a network, check this page to see if there is one in your area.

If you’re involved in a Christian education network through an organization outside of Schools United, we’d love to hear about it! We can include your group here so others will be more likely to find out and join your group. Just complete the form below to let us know.

Local chapters are networks for Christian school leaders (heads of school, principals, directors, and other administrators) who meet in person locally at various times throughout the year.

Peer networks are for groups of Christian education professionals with expertise in the same areas. They can be for teachers, those in administrative roles, or anywhere in between. Because these are virtual meetings via platforms like Zoom and GoogleMeet, members don’t have to be local. In fact, learning from others outside your community could be a great way to broaden your perspective and grow your impact.

There’s no set rule about how your network must meet. Every group may do things a bit differently, depending on your needs and expectations.

However, as a general rule, local chapters for school leaders meet in person several times a year, for instance, quarterly at various schools in the local vicinity.

Peer networks tend to meet at least once a year (ideally quarterly) in a virtual format, like Zoom or GoogleMeet.

When you’re just beginning as a chapter or peer network leader, committing to at least one meeting a year would be great.

Remember, we’re here to guide you. Please pray about what God has for you as a peer network member, or leader.

Sure! Here is the list of networks we’re praying for. Those that are linked already have leaders. You can click those and join today!

If your area isn’t linked, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page to either let us know you’re willing to lead or you’d like to be contacted when a group gets started.

The short answer is no. We know you may wear many hats as a Christian educator. That’s why we want you to find a peer network for each one. Remember, most peer networks only meet a handful of times a year in a virtual format, so your time commitment is minimal.

In fact, we believe that joining peer networks can actually save you time in the long run. Praying and collaborating with your peers may generate some practical ways to improve your practices.

If there is no network in your local area or profession, pray about starting one! You could be the person God uses to make something great for you and your professional peers. There is no cost other than a little of your time and effort, and you don’t have to be an expert or have a ton of experience in your field. A willing heart and desire to foster meaningful connections will go a long way!

Of course! Let us know in the form below what network you’re interested in, and we’ll contact you when someone starts it. If you don’t find your peer network in our list, you’ll have a chance to include it in the form, and we’ll be sure to add it.
