About Christian Educators

Christian Educators of British Columbia (CEBC) is a service organization formed to support the varied needs of Christian teachers, and those serving in the fields of educational support, English language learning, early learning, and library services in communities across the province. We focus on promoting professional development, providing educational resources, advocating for our educators in matters employment issues and conflicts, and representing the educator's voice in decision making arenas across BC and Canada.

Christian education is at its best when all those involved in education allow creativity and educational leadership to flourish in a supportive, trusting environment. The CEBC facilitates this by actively building strong, collaborative relationships between our educators and those stakeholders outside of our organization.
