Actual testimonies from CEAI members

“I am so thankful for CEAI, and I have been able to share with many co-workers what a blessing it is and how much support I received.”
“CEAI was an incredible advocate for me in a recent problem I had regarding a student’s parental custody issue. By God’s divine intervention, and your swift response in advice and prayer, a resolution was made between the parents.”
“I consider my job a ministry and being a member of CEAI has reinforced my calling.”
“Informative meetings have given me knowledge of what is and what is not permitted in public schools and I am grateful to have that support.”
“Before calling CEAI, I felt so isolated, helpless, and alone. But God’s Holy Spirit, full of discernment and peace, emanated from your words over the phone. God is alive!”
“Your magazine is always good, but this month you hit it out of the ballpark. I feel like this issue was written specifically for ME.”
“I really appreciate the prayers and the advice after I contacted CEAI. I felt better knowing what my position was and where the limitations lie.”
“I want to thank you so much for your wise counsel and prayer support. [The resolution] only took 4 days after her accusing conference with me— only GOD could have changed her heart that quickly.”
“Thank you for the advice to not turn in a letter of resignation. If I had, I don’t think they would have tried to find a position for me.”
“You gave me precise advice on how to handle the situation in terms of what to include in the union resignation and religious objection letters.”
“At every single CEAI meeting I have ever attended, I have ALWAYS experienced the presence of God.”
“CEAI has provided so much for me. It has filled a need to fellowship with believers, it has given me opportunities to worship with wonderful saints, it has allowed me to minister to people through serving and prayer.”
“CEAI has given me the opportunity to meet educators, artists, community leaders, and such that I never would have met through any other organization.”
“Being a member of CEAI has really meant a lot to me. I have had the opportunity to meet new people and to share ideas of my teaching experience especially to new teachers.”
“The prayers and guidance of our CEAI membership has often given me a boost when obstacles arise in my classroom as well as my after school Bible Club.”
