HILLIARD, Ohio (BP) — LifeWise Academy founder Joel Penton was on Bluetooth, driving a vibrant red and yellow school bus fashioned into a camper, heading from Ohio with his wife and five school-age children to the newest academy sites in Arkansas, Tennessee and Georgia.

He wanted his family to be present as LifeWise Academy launched its latest local chapters teaching elective, off-site Bible education to public school students during the school day, Penton told Baptist Press April 10. The program offering released-time religious instruction is fully protected by law that has survived challenges at the U.S. Supreme Court.

With an original goal of 25 sites in the first five years after its 2019 launch, LifeWise Academy is already offered to 330 schools in 14 states and confirmed to serve over 450 schools in 19 states by the fall of 2024, Penton said.

“The goal is to make Bible education available to every one of the 50 million public school students nationwide,” he said, “and in doing so introduce them to the Gospel, which will change their lives forever.

“We recognize the mission field that is our local public schools,” he said. “Every week we’re talking about Jesus and we’re urging kids to trust in Him and find their hope in Him.”

In Zorach v. Clauson in 1952, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled released-time religious instruction is legal during the public school day as long as it is held off-site from school grounds, is not supported by public funds and requires parental permission for enrollment. The Rest of The Story Here

Kathy Branzell of National Day of Prayer nails it: God did not put a dimmer switch on His people. If our communities and country are getting darker it is because we are covering up our light; keeping quiet when we should speak up, only looking to our own interests when we should be tending to the issues of our towns. We are guilty of stepping back from the fight to maintain righteousness in our schools, government, entertainment, business decisions, defending the weak and oppressed, and even deciding to “keep the peace” in our family and church instead of obeying the Prince of Peace. Things seem “darker” in this world because we let it by refusing to “LIGHT” it. For every time we said, “I don’t want to be ‘that’ person” or we were more concerned about offending someone instead of our Savior, we let the darkness take more ground.
