The Van Lunen Center: Executive Management in Christian Schools

The Van Lunen Center mourns the loss of 2010-2011 Van Lunen Fellow, Curt Tuininga, who went to glory on January 15, 2019. His constaint refrain, even throughout his year-long journey with cancer was, "God is good, all the time." We give thanks to God for the gift of Curt.

Currently, there are 268 Fellows in the U.S., Canada, and abroad - and their leadership is impacting more than 110,000 students and over 9,500 Christian school faculty members! Your gift to The Van Lunen Center strengthens leaders and their Christian schools; when joined together, many gifts of financial support, prayer, engagement, and program endorsement is a powerful influence.

The Van Lunen Center mourns the loss of our founder, Dr. Gordon J. VanderBrug, on Friday, November 9. During the last few weeks of his life here on earth, amid treatment for his rare form of cancer, Gordonís steadfast faith in Godís loving care, and strong spirit of courage, optimism, and joy were richly present.

Thanks to Gordonís trust in Godís faithfulness and his dedication to excellent management of Christian schools, he has indeed helped make a difference in the world. For this, we echo Gordonís frequent prayer, ďThank you Lord.Ē

We are in the process of creating a new website. Please check back in March to see the changes, along with new resources for heads of Chrsitian schools.
