We officially began CSM on August 1st, 2017, but we have actually been fighting the good fight for our entire lives. We love children and we love the Christian schools where those children are nurtured and fed. Simon is the founder, under God, of CSM. His testimony is this: “I have four children of my own and I want a great education for them. Almost as much, I want a great education to be there for every Christian family like mine. I get quite depressed when I see Christian schools, full of terrific people and supporters struggle and even go out of business. There have been far too many. I was working at ISM for 14 years and saw this happen first-hand. I saw it happen in the experience of my own children. God finally made me stop what I was doing and take this on as my life mission in founding CSM in 2017. I thought I was at the end part of my career but God has convicted me that this is just the beginning of a new era where I am called to lead and follow in service to children in our Christian schools.”
Simon is co-founder and Executive Director of CSM. He provides school-hosted workshops, writes Entheos (the CSM weekly advice and counsel letter), and works to extend God’s kingdom by coaching and training other Christian school leaders to transform the Christian School Movement. CSM’s mission is For Jesus; Through Mission; With Students.
Simon is passionate about ensuring that every seat in every Christian school is full and that every student in those seats is having a joyful, transformative experience.
Mr. Jeynes is married with four children, two dogs, a bird, and many bird feeders. He is delighted that three of his children are now at university.
He is proud to be a dual Canadian / American citizen.
