We have moved our current webpage where our International Christian Community for Teacher Educators can remain connected here.

We are leaving this page up for now but anticipate removing it from public access after the 2020 ICCTE Conference at Mount Vernon Nazarene University (May 18-21).

If you have any questions, please feel free to reaching out to our ICCTE Board Communications Coordinators: Jeff Peck (peckjw@grace.edu ) OR Sunshine Sullivan (sunshine.sullivan@houghton.edu).

Additionally, Janet S. Arndt, ICCTE President can be contacted regarding any questions you have about ICCTE (Janet.Arndt@gordon.edu).



ICCTE is about individuals and about relationships.  Many of us work in relatively small programs and are often seeking fellowship, collaboration, mentoring and professional growth with colleagues who do similar work.  Relationships built through conference participation and through involvement in service and scholarship related to the purposes of ICCTE are supportive to each of us.

Being actively involved in state-level, national and international professional and scholarly organizations is an important aspect of our work in educator preparation.  We often work with colleagues from State institutions and those who don’t hold a Christian worldview. Our call to be salt and light requires us to actively engage the broader culture and profession. And so, our connections to Christian scholars and teachers enables us to further our work in our local context in service, teaching and scholarship.
