Educate Haiti for Christ with Eben-Ezer Mission

 
Our ministry, Educating Generations for Christ, is partnering with Eben-Ezer Mission and the Christian University of Haiti (Université Chrétienne d’Haïti or UCH), to implement Principle Approach education in the university and their schools. Eben-Ezer Mission is an indigenous ministry pioneering Christian education in Haiti, and through their network of schools, co-ops, churches, and community organizations, has a tremendous influence across the nation. God has now positioned them to implement Principle Approach education in their schools and university, and then to reach out and train Christian teachers all over Haiti to follow their lead and lay a solid Biblical foundation for the next generation and beyond. “Principle Approach education is the historic method of Biblical reasoning that makes the truths and principles of God’s Word the basis of every subject in the school curriculum. We are amazed at the level of passion and commitment these Eben-Ezer Mission leaders have displayed against all odds, as they trust God to use Christian education to lay a new foundation upon Christ and His Word for their university, their schools, and for schools all over Haiti. But much help is needed!

Friberg's with Educators from Haiti
JOSIAH FRIBERG'S NEW JOB DESCRIPTION?
Josiah has been appointed by Eben-Ezer Mission to oversee all educational training and professional development of the faculty and staff for the Christian University of Haiti and Eben-Ezer Schools. Under Josiah’s leadership, UCH is now being restructured and transformed into a Principle Approach based Christian university that will offer three degree programs in 2013: Teaching & Education, Bible & Theology, and Administration & Management. In time, five other degree programs will be added: engineering, agronomy, communications, music & arts, and medicine. Josiah is responsible for laying the foundation of a Christian philosophy and methodology of education and for establishing the first Christian Teachers’ College in Haiti. The Teachers’ College will train teachers for all of Eben-Ezer’s schools, as well as teachers from all districts of the country.  

HELP IS NEEDED FOR THIS EDUCATION MISSION
The poverty of Haiti is well known and recently exacerbated by earthquakes and hurricanes. Christians long to see Haiti prosper and enjoy civil liberty, but the only lasting help for Haiti is to establish Biblical principles of life and self-government in the hearts of the next generation. Would you help send the Friberg family to Haiti to educate and disciple Haiti into a Christian nation by making a contribution to this ministry? Finances are needed for airline tickets, moving expenses, shipping a container and a vehicle, living expenses, family needs, and educational training materials. Material supplies are also needed. By helping send the Fribergs to train leaders in Christian education, you will be helping to lay the foundation for a new Christian Haiti of tomorrow. We know the best way to disciple a nation is through the education of its children. Teaching Biblical principles is the key to bringing Haiti out of its impoverished state and into the full liberty of Christ. Help the Fribergs make this possible!
 
SHORT-TERM MISSION WORKERS & TEAMS NEEDED
Eben-Ezer Mission was founded in 1969 by Pastor Michel Morisset in Gonaives. It is one of the oldest indigenous Protestant mission organizations in Haiti whose broad influence has reached across the nation for 43 year. Its ministries include the Christian University of Haiti, several Christian schools, a vocational school, a national education network, several churches, a Christian hospital, a Christian Credit Union Co-op, an agricultural network, an orphanage, etc. Eben-Ezer Mission pioneered the first Christian secondary school in Gonaives and established the first Christian university in Haiti. Would you come as a short-term worker to help serve God with us?
 

WE'RE RECRUITING CHRISTIAN PROFESSORS TO TEACH AT UCH 
We are now recruiting godly Christian professors for UCH who have a strong Biblical worldview and solid Christian character, who are trained or willing to be trained in Principle Approach education, who are experienced teachers with a passion for teaching and for truth, and who are willing to temporarily lay down their lives to serve the Lord in Haiti where He is transforming a nation for His glory. Retired, self-supporting, experienced, and successful professionals with graduate degrees in their field of expertise would be highly valued.

John Milton on the Purpose of Education


I encourage every parent and teacher to consider deeply the purpose of education.

In this famous quote, John Milton reveals a profound insight into the true meaning and purpose of learning and education:

"The end of learning is to repair the ruin of our first parents
by regaining to know GOD aright,
and out of that knowledge
to love Him, to imitate Him, to be like Him." 

I challenge every parent to devote themselves to researching the Bible to find the true purpose and goal of education from the mouth of GOD Himself...

God Give Us True Christ-centered Teachers' Colleges

The Puritans began arriving in the Massachusetts Bay Colony around 1630, and within six short years they had established the first college in America known as Harvard College. Its purpose was to train ministers and missionaries and other leaders who knew God and Jesus Christ His Son. This original mission statement reveals that they really understood what true Christian education was. Today, more than ever, America needs Christian schools, colleges, and universities built on the same foundation, which is Jesus Christ who is the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning. Tragically, Harvard College was taken over by liberal Unitarians in 1805.

More than any other type of college, the church in America today needs several excellent Christ-centered, Biblically-based, Principle Approach TEACHERS' COLLEGES to train up a new generation of Christian teachers who have a Christian philosophy of education, a sound Biblical worldview, Biblical methods of teaching and learning, and a solid Biblical worldview curriculum. We can no longer afford to have our Christian teachers trained by secular humanists and Marxists in the state universities, and we can no longer tolerate having our Christian teachers being trained in "Christian" colleges and universities that have been saturated with humanism and are nearly indistinguishable from the education departments of the state universities. Instead of being 90% alike in their educational philosophy and teaching methodology, true Christ-centered teachers' colleges will be and must be 100% different in all aspects. God Almighty, El-Shaddai, hear my cry and give us teachers' colleges worthy of Your name, worthy of Christian children, faithful to Your Word and to the Truth, uncompromising, bold, creative, and founded on the only foundation worthy of true Christian education - the LORD Jesus Christ.

Clash of the Worldviews: Noah Webster Vs. John Dewey


Could it be any clearer than this? Here we have two American educational "fathers" with diametrically opposing worldviews. Noah Webster represents the Biblical and Christian worldview, based on the truth and authority of God's holy Word, the Bible. On the other hand, John Dewey represents the anti-Christian atheistic humanist worldview, based on humanism, a rejection of God, and paganism.

From these two "fathers," America has developed two very different educational systems. Our original Christian colonial-era education is known as the Christian classical educational system or what is called "the Principle Approach" to education. This system was founded by the early Christian pioneers such as the Pilgrims and Puritans of Massachusetts. Noah Webster helped catapult it and advance it with his 1828 Dictionary and his many publications of Biblically-based curricula. This system continues today to some degree through Christian home schools, through Biblical worldview Christian schools, and most completely through Principle Approach® Christian worldview schools.

The other system is the public school system of state education. It is built on the foundation of John Dewey and his anti-Christian philosophy of humanism, atheism, naturalism, evolution, and moral relevance. It is this system which is destroying our children spiritually, morally, and intellectually. It is this "Dewey" system that is destroying our entire culture and it's spiritual and moral foundations. It is this system that Christian parents need to reject and separate from, and in its place, these parents can draw on America's Christian heritage and provide their children with a godly Christian education through home schooling or Christian worldview schools or Principle Approach schools.

Public Education's Role in a Socialist Society





This quote is by Dr. Samuel Blumenfeld, one of the most respected Christian educators in the nation. 

God has given him the prophetic insight and understanding to see that public education and the income tax are at the heart of the agenda of the Left to transform America into a socialist, ungodly, controlled society in the image of socialist Europe. 

If Americans truly want to be a free people who are self-governed and who enjoy the liberty and inalienable rights given to us by our Creator - then we must get rid of these two institutions which are designed to keep America in bondage and transform her into a godless, secular, non-Christian socialist society.

I encourage you to do your own research on this truth. Study the totalitarian governments of the 20th century, and you will find government-controlled "free" public education as one of the main supporting pillars that created a dumbed-down, submissive, morally corrupt citizenry who were enslaved by a totalitarian state that had all the power. Marxism, Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism, and communism under every title has been built on these two fundamental pillars.

The Education of Children for God Is Every Parent's Primary Purpose



"The education of children for God
is the most important business done on earth.
It is the one business for which the earth exists.

To it all politics, all war, all literature,
all money-making, ought to be subordinated;

and every parent especially ought to feel, every hour of the day,
that, next to making his own calling and election sure, 
this is the end for which he is kept alive by God
--this is his task on earth."

Quote by  R. L. Dabney

Robert Lewis Dabney was a great American Christian theologian, a Southern Presbyterian pastor, and Confederate Army chaplain. He was also Chief of Staff and biographer for General Stonewall Jackson. 

Dabney rightly saw God's perspective on education, which is a multi-generational vision of according to Psalm 78:4-7, Deuteronomy 6:5-7, and Matthew 28:18-20.

God has always assigned this greatest task, this most important business, to Christian parents; that is, to the family and the home, and never to the government or state. This is the primary purpose of every parent and the main reason that God gives parents the gift and stewardship of His children.

God our heavenly Father desires "godly offspring" (Malachi 2:15) and has commanded all Christian parents to "tell the generations to come the praises of the Lord" so that they should teach their children and their grandchildren "to put their confidence in God and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments (Psalm 78:5,7)." I encourage every Christian to meditate upon Psalm 78:1-11 before the Lord day after day for twenty-one days, asking the Spirit of Truth to give you a revelation of the mind of Christ regarding how to educate your children according to Christ, how to educate your children for God.
