Imagine the possibilities.

Drs. Bull and Pingel invite you to travel with them around the world, visiting different Lutheran schools that are growing, innovating, and thriving in a culture that challenges Christian education.

Each of the eleven case studies in this book looks at a successful school, delving into its background and history, challenges and opportunities, goals and outcomes. Far from a step-by-step recipe for success, Imagine the Possibilities will expand your awareness of the vast potential in Christian education and provide you with ideas to consider implementing in your school.

May these examples inspire you to create your own compelling story of a thriving Lutheran school, wherever God has called you to serve.
