“Gospel-Centered,” “Gospel-Powered,” or something else?

I’ve been thinking a lot for the past few years about what it mean to be a public school teacher whose work is informed and transformed by the gospel, through and through.

But here’s a question I’ve been wondering, and I’m posing it to any interested parties: would such teaching be called “Gospel-Centered,” “Gospel-Powered,” or something else? What do you call public school teaching that has at the center and edges of its philosophy the good news of Jesus Christ?

We were once members at a church that had as central to its work this phrase: the Gospel changes everything. And I’ve wondered, ever since: how does it change public school teaching?

I’d like to explore the question further in this blog. But, in the meantime, answer the poll below and share it with any other teachers you know who are asking these kinds of questions!
