In 2009, Dick Amundson (Tentmakers’ founder) and Finn Laursen (Christian Educators’ Executive Director) began working on a way to effectively bring Christ-centered leadership training to public school teachers as they reach out with God’s love and truth in the Public Schools. What developed was a weekend think-tank experience that evolved into the Daniel Weekend. This two and one-half day course utilizes Tentmakers unique training process: a team-led, interactive process in which people learn through the modeling, discovery, and practice of time-tested principles in an environment of discipline, affirmation and encouragement.
