WWCS Announces Bold New Vision

Blog Archives:

After much discussion and prayer, Worldwide Christian Schools in Canada has become EduDeo Ministries.

The decision to rename and rebrand the organization came from our strategic planning session in May 2010. Those two fruitful days were the culmination of many discussions and developments.

Working directly with our international partners brought deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities before us. We had grown as an organization, and all agreed that a Biblical worldview, teacher training and curriculum development were imperative to bringing long-term, everlasting change.

While we maintain that assisting others in building physical schools is still integral to who we are, it now fits into a bigger vision of what quality, Christian education means for whole communities. While our driving passion and purpose are the same, our focus and vision have expanded.

To effectively communicate this change and prepare for the future, the process of renaming and rebranding the organization has lead us to today.

New Name & Logo

The name EduDeo is a combination of the words “Education” and “Deo” which is latin for “God”. This fusion encapsulates the heart of our mission - an education rooted in the Gospel. Together, these words are a true reflection of our vision and mission.

Our tagline - Education + Gospel = Transformation - grew from the naming process. This recurring theme guided the logo design as well. To tell the story of our ministry visually we chose a butterfly as a metaphor for transformation. That butterfly doubles as a book, while the Christian fish symbol that makes up the body, underscores that the most important book, God’s Word, is the foundation for education.

As a unit, our name, tagline and new identity represent us well today and looks towards the future. Read more about what’s in a name.

We invite you to get inspired by browsing the website. We welcome your feedback as well. We’d love to hear from you! You can comment below on this blog post or send us an email.
