Summer Term

Jun 29, 2020 to Jul 31, 2020
During the month of July, Faith Builders operates a five-week term. We offer courses during this term designed to prepare and equip teachers in K-12 settings.

We plan to open registration for Summer Term 2020 by March 15!

Good teachers are always learning and growing, increasing their knowledge and skills while developing as persons. Many teachers have found that the challenge and discipline of Summer Term courses has increased their effectiveness as teachers. Summer Term provides an opportunity for teachers to invest in their capabilities as a teacher. Many schools and churches are encouraging that investment by offering financial support to teachers attending Summer Term at Faith Builders.
