The organization describes its mission as follows: “CEAI is a non-profit religious association with a membership service center in Westlake, Ohio. CEAI membership consists of teachers, administrators, para-professionals including any person hired by a school district. In addition, we offer associate membership to parents, pastors, school board members, youth leaders and others concerned or interested in the education of our children.” According to the CEAI website, they are the only Christian association seeking to support Christians working in public schools.
The resources they provide include the magazine Teachers of Vision, an inspirational daily devotional, information and support regarding legal issues, plus numerous other services. They announce events, workshops, and seminars that may be of interest to their members.
Several members of the education faculty have been pivotal members of this association. Regent University Library is in the process of acquiring archival materials from the early days of CEAI. More information about this special collection will be forthcoming.
