About Us

 

OUR MISSION

The mission of the Lutheran Education Association in
Southern Africa is to link, equip and encourage Christian
educators and workers in Ministry by following the core
values of Grace, Christian Character, Servant leadership,
Excellence and Collaboration.


OUR CORE VALUES


GRACE

Ephesians 2:8-9)
We value grace through faith in Jesus Christ and the Lutheran understanding of Scriptures and the Christian faith. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast”

CHRISTIAN CHARACTER

(Titus 2:7-8)
We value integrity in ministry to God’s people which includes honesty, allegiance, loyalty, and trust in relationships. “In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness, and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned”

SERVANT LEADERSHIP

(Matthew 20:26-28)
We value servant hood and leadership as modeled by Jesus. “Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave — just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many”

EXCELLENCE

(Philippians 4:8)
We value professional development, advanced training, innovative teaching, and standards of excellence in education. “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things”

COLLABORATION

(Colossians 3:16)
We value working together to share, learn, advocate and celebrate. “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts”
