Shalom! Peace be with you all！ The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. -- Proverb 9:10 (NIV)
The 21st century is the era of Asia. It is a requirement of the times to cultivate the leadership of Asian people and serve the World. The challenges our children have to encounter are different than those ever before. There are many things that we have never experienced before. Therefore, we need more wisdom that transcends the generations towards solving those problems.
“Where does this wisdom come from? The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Leadership development begins with the fear of the Lord. Those who fear the Lord, God has given them outstanding wisdom that the world cannot give them.
Joseph was the leader Prime Minister of Egypt. His leadership came from the fear of the Lord. Daniel was the leader, Prime Minister in Babylon. He is a man of wisdom. His wisdom also came from the fear of the Lord.
Today the entire world is encountering the crisis of the epidemic, the economic crisis and the crisis of global warming. Only people with God’s wisdom are able to solve such problems.

Optimized education system for the future

(Accelerated Christian Education) is an educational method that has been validated in more than 50 years of history to cultivate students' self-directed learning ability. Self-directed learning methods. It is one of the best educational methods to face the new 4th industrial revolution era. Many A.C.E graduates who are active in society and the workplace have proven their self-dominance and international leadership. The self-directed A.C.E learning method is very effective in university, graduate school and lifelong learning after entering the society.
