Welcome to K12Alternative 2020 Summit - to be held 12-14 Aug., 2020 worldwide at Christ Summit. Our mission is to partner with the Church & the Family to equip the leaders of tomorrow. Annually we will have a different theme. Our theme this year is "United in Purpose, Diverse in Action" to reflect the effort we are investing in the church and family as we equip tomorrow's leaders, our children.
The summit will feature speakers representing various ministries, organizations, colleges|universities, and family educators from a broad spectrum of perspectives (Classical Conversations, Cyber school, Private school, Charlotte-Mason, etc.). K12Alternative does not favor one approach over another. At K12Alternative we are Diversely Unified because we share a common purpose: to bring glory to God. Share about this event to your friends, family, church, and colleagues at work. We pray that K12Alternative will encourage you and equip you as we partner in preparing tomorrow's leaders in academia, music, art, politics, medicine, sports, science, technology, media, business, and ministry.

Learn and collaborate. Training ministry and lay leaders on how to invest in programs geared towards K-12 and their families inside and outside the church. Evaluate case studies and implement the lessons learned.
Challenging today’s youth to rise up to the honored call of our Lord to grow in His likeness and live an active life for Christ as a leader and positive influence on other youth and adults worldwide.
Fearfully and Wonderfully made. K12Alternative's goal is to gather experts who can provide resources and strategies to help families and educators who are blessed with special needs students.
Spiritual Formation: the process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the glory of God. Formation is a life long process involving right thinking (orthodoxy) and right living (orthopraxy).
We want this event to be an experience you will remember. We have made the extra effort to interview some of the speakers so that you can get to know them and a little bit about what they will talk about @ K12Alternative. Don't forget to share about this event to your friends and family. We are excited and are looking forward to see how God will use K12Alternative to shape the landscape of tomorrow.

Do you want to expand the reach of your ministry or organization and double or triple the impact? Have you ever wanted to host a workshop or a conference on a topic you strongly believed will strengthen your congregation, but without the excessive burden of financial cost? Can your ministry benefit from additional income or a new way to generate financial support without overwhelming your church, organization, or business? Do you believe more people can be impacted by what the Bible teaches on various topics (marriage, finance, Biblical Manhood, Biblical Womanhood, parenting, worship, evangelism, youth ministry, etc.) if it was more readily available in this fast pace culture we live in? As a Christian entrepreneur, have you ever hungered for the opportunity to connect with like minded people in the marketplace? Have you ever considered monetizing your knowledge of Scriptures and its application to support your calling? Have you ever wondered how you can stay on top of the latest research in the languages, Biblical studies, archaeology, ministry, Pauline theology, church history, New/Old Testament studies, etc.?
The answer to these questions is Christ Summit. At Christ Summit we are more than just a platform to host your events. We are the intersection of ministry and technology, a community that fosters fellowship of the believers, the classroom where the minds are transformed for the glory of God and the heart set on fire, the arena where like-minded entrepreneurs network to change the marketplace, the quiet room where prayers are lifted up. You are no longer confined in a room, restricted by time, exhausted by travelling, financially drained by expenses. You can enjoy all of the benefits of live, physical events from the comfort of your home, or at the cafe while enjoying your latte, on your phone or tablet while commuting from work, or laptop at the beach or resort.
Only the Gospel can change the world and that is why at Christ Summit our mission is “To Proclaim the Gospel.” We accomplish this through you. Partner with us and change the world.
