This article presents a new framework for the

governance of Christian Schools—a Community

Governance Framework that centres on the key

roles and relationships contained within that

community. Relationships are central to the

Community Governance Framework, as it is our

belief that quality healthy relationships are critical to

growing healthy Christian organisations.

Whilst there are many similarities and familiar

elements between the Community Governance

Framework and other models, the unique difference

is that the Community Governance Framework

seeks to put all the pieces of the governance puzzle

together in one place to show, in effect, what a

healthy Christian school actually looks like. The

framework has been developed through practical

experience as consultants working with the Boards

of hundreds of Christian Schools and Not for Profit
