KSi Grant Request Form

SBACS strives to help our member schools receive valuable training and establish best practices by providing grants to offset the cost of attending this premiere kingdom-focused conference. The key to success for every Christian school rests on their ability to know, understand and operate from a biblical philosophy of education. Unlike any other conference, KSi distinctly and specifically focuses on helping Christian schools develop the philosophy and plan they need to ensure a biblical stance that permeates their own educational program.

Affordable Care Act and Christian Schools Workshop

The Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) is now the law of the land and affects every Christian school and their sponsoring churches.  No ministry is exempt.  The issue facing each school is how the law will affect their operation, what the cost of implementation and compliance will be and what changes the school must make to avoid the penalties and fines imposed for failure to comply.  The greatest danger facing most schools is failure to understand this complex and far-reaching law and not responding proactively to meet its requirements.  ACA creates a host of legal and financial dangers for the unwary and uninformed that could result in six figures fines.  As of January 2015, all of the law’s provisions are now in force and require compliance, except for a few transition rules for certain employers. 


Since 2010, SBACS has been offering sessions on the Affordable Care Act during our annual fall Business Administrators' Roundtable to help member schools prepare for implementation.  Martin Boelens, J.D., the presenter of these sessions has read the entire 2,700 page law and extensively researched its implications for nonprofit Christian ministries like schools and churches.  After hearing Mr. Boelen’s  presentations at the Business Administrators' Roundtable over the last several years, Dr. Sonny Sherrill, Superintendent at North Raleigh Christian Academy, asked him to expand the sessions into a full day workshop in Raleigh and invited schools in the region to hear the presentation.  On January 27,, 2015, The Affordable Care Act and Christian Schools Workshop will be hosted by North Raleigh Christian Academy. 


As a service to our schools, Martin has allowed SBACS to post his presentations here free of charge for your use and study.


Affordable Care Act and Christian Schools Workshop

Part One:  Employer Shared Responsibility:  Play or Pay

Part Two:  ACA and the Employer Mandate: Penalties and Fees

Part Three:  Best Practices:  Ongoing Responsibility   

Part Four:   Recommendations:  Complying with ACA


In order to comply with ACA you will need to determine the number of employees your school has.  It is important not to confuse independent contractors with employees.  Deciding this is not simply a matter of your opinion or decision, but rather a matter of law and rules.  These links will help you in determining if someone is an employee vs a self-employed contractor, but to be certain, you should consult your school’s accountant, attorney or other professional for an opinion from them you can rely upon.

1.  Independent Contractor (Self-Employed) or Employee?

2.  Law Relating To Worker Classification For Federal Tax Purposes (IRS 20 Point Test)

Question: What trait do highly successful businesses and highly effective Christian schools have in common?

Answer:  Both invest significantly, continuously and aggressively in leadership training and development. Even when financial times are tough, they find a way to invest in advanced training for their leaders, because they know that their company or school can only be as effective as its leaders.


SBACS wants your school to be more effective for the Kingdom so we have provided a grant for SBACS member schools to help send their leaders to the Kingdom School Institute (KSi). How do you get financial help for your school? It’s as simple as 1…2!
