Who encourages the encourager? All educators are encouragers, or at least we hope for the sake of the students. When the day doesn’t go as planned or the environment at school is not as great as it should be, who encourages the encourager? The one true Encourager is always available through prayer. His Word gives us truths and wisdom to be all He has made us to be. We also need other Christians who understand our worldview and desire to be an ambassador for Him. Too often it seems like we are alone in our schools, but the good news is that there are thousands of us!
How do you find out what you can and cannot do as a Christian in the public schools? Did you know that there is only one professional association totally dedicated to encouraging, equipping and empowering adminstrators, teachers and paraprofessionals in our public schools? CEAI – Christian Educators Association, Int. serves the encouragers. CEAI is devoted to uniting and empowering the encouragers with prayer, resources, information, understanding and so much more. As a reader of the 16-9 Movement, you know how important it is to know the first 16 words of the Constitution and to live out the 9 Fruits of the Spirit in our school life. CEAI helps us to be legal and graceful at school and empowers us to be like Jesus to our students, colleagues and administration. If you are not already a member, please consider joining us as an educator on a mission. If you are already a member, please tell your other Christian friends/educators about this great organization.
These are three First Amendment Center Guides for you. Please share these excellent equipping resources with educators and parents you know.

I love this organization and have been blessed by telling others about CEAI. In almost every situation, I hear, “Wow, we didn’t know there was such an organization out there.” We are the best kept secret in America and do not want to stay that way. Will you please help us not longer be a secret, but a blessing to our school communities?

Christian Educators Association International is the only professional association in the United States specifically for Christian educators in public schools. CEAI protects our members first in prayer, next with excellent professional liability insurance and other benefits while helping them live out their high calling as a Christian in the public school.
