Kingdom Education



Teen PrayKingdom education is defined as the lifelong, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a child into a new identity with Christ. Kingdom education works to develop children according to their specific abilities so that a child will be empowered to live a life characterized by love, trust and obedience to Christ. The ultimate goal of kingdom education is to develop a mature disciple of Jesus Christ whose life glorifies God.

In kingdom education God reigns in the entire educational process.

“A lifelong, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of

  • Leading a child to Christ,
  • Building a child up in Christ,
  • Equipping a child to serve Christ, and
  • Causing the child know and glorify God.”

       Glen Shultz, November 2017 TCCS Inservice

Kingdom education allows students to:

  • Study reality as a manifestation of God’s glory,
  • Speak of it with accuracy, and
  • Savor the beauty of God in it.


Our Kingdom education philosophy is founded on God’s Word and is based on training received at the Kingdom Education Institute at Prestonwood Christian Academy and inservice training to all TCCS faculty and staff by Glen Schulz, who developed the kingdom education philosophy and authored the book by the same name. The faculty continue to receive training to help TCCS truly live out the mission of kingdom education through monthly care group discussions and readings. Most importantly, the Bible provides each and every Christian with principles needed to put kingdom education into practice. In order to achieve kingdom education, these biblical principles must be studied, understood and practiced in every aspect of life.

1. Parental responsibility

The education of children and youth is the primary responsibility of parents.

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." -Proverbs 22:6

The above passage makes it clear that parents are responsible to God for the education or training of their children. Another way of interpreting Psalm 127:3 is children are God’s homework assignments to parents. Even if parents delegate some area of their child’s education to others, they are still answerable to God for what and how their children are taught.

Questions Christian parents can ask themselves to ensure they are assuming total responsibility for the education:

  • Who or what is in control of educating my child at home?
  • What influence does the media have on my child at home?
  • What is my child being taught in church, Sunday school, and other church related activities?
  • What is my child learning at school? From the teachers? From the textbooks? From the curriculum? From other students? From the school’s policies and procedures?
