A world where individuals and communities become all God intends Vision for Transformation

When we successfully pursue our mission in the power of the Spirit, we see emerging a great movement of people who have experienced personal transformation and whose world of influence experiences redemptive change. We aim to help people become all God intends as they come to understand what it means to be formed Imago Dei and to live before Him as called, commissioned, and creative people. As followers of Jesus, we see ourselves as models of all we teach and we see those whom we serve relating all of life and learning to God and His Word. We see ourselves as a magnet attracting others who wish to join a community that cares deeply about people and societies and who have a restless desire to serve rather than to be served.

We see communities changed through Christ-centered individuals whose faith permeates all aspects of who they are and what they do. We see all levels of society benefitting - the poor and rich alike. We see those who have been changed becoming ambassadors of transformational education and proponents of a contagious idea that contributes redemptively to the spiritual, moral, social, ecological, and economic wellbeing of nations. We see deeply entrenched patterns of social injustice and prejudice broken by the redeeming work of Christ learned in educational settings; in their place will be new patterns of justice, mercy, and compassion.

We see ourselves being given the privilege of participating in and fostering a movement that is neither constrained nor restrained by TeachBeyond. Rather, TeachBeyond taps a deep and ancient river of wisdom, inspired by God Himself and revealed in His authoritative Word, which overflows its banks and spawns life-giving streams. While these streams carry in them the discernible TeachBeyond quality of transformation and redemption, their influence and blessing extend far beyond the reach or even the knowledge of TeachBeyond. We see ourselves as a catalyst for missional Christian education and as a steward nurturing renewal, not as an end or as proprietary guardian. We see ourselves being a unified multinational, multicultural movement reflecting the diversity of the global Church.

Mission statement

As followers of Jesus, we are a global community providing transformational education services as part of God's ongoing mission to transform individuals and communities into all He intends

Statement of faith

The Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

One God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

Our Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, and his personal return in power and glory.

The Salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the Church, the Body of Christ.

The Resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

TeachBeyond was born on the western Canadian prairies in 1954, when Leo Janz committed himself to bringing the biblical message of hope to post-war Germany. Several members of his family joined him to create The Janz Brothers Gospel Association, which began broadcasting over Radio Luxembourg in 1955. News of the Association's radio, church, music, and educational work spread to German-speaking communities in Europe. As opportunities grew, the original Janz Association established various national Janz organizations to serve needs in Europe and South America.

Today the founding association is known as TeachBeyond. Its primary emphasis is on educational initiatives, such as schools, English language camps, and professional seminars. The name TeachBeyond reflects the organization's commitment to teaching beyond one-dimensional, utilitarian forms of education to a comprehensive, holistic form of education
