Dr. George Durance – TeachBeyond
In this interview we speak with Dr. George Durance, the President of TeachBeyond. Dr. Durance has been with Teachbeyond for a little over five years and before that was the President of Ambrose University College in Calgary, Alberta.
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. Today the founding Janz association is known as TeachBeyond. Its primary emphasis is on educational initiatives, such as English language camps, professional seminars, and schools, including Black Forest Academy, which was founded in 1956.
Over three hundred workers serve with TeachBeyond in countries from Southeast Asia to northern Africa, Brazil and various countries in Europe.
The name TeachBeyond reflects the organization’s commitment to teaching beyond one-dimensional, utilitarian forms of education to a comprehensive, holistic form of education.
