MKEdS (Missionary Kid Education Summit, formerly IMKEC) is the annual conference for those working with missionary kids (MKs) in the area of education. Typical attendees include international teachers, international school reps, educational services reps, and mission reps.

Every year we gather to network, share resources and engage with current MK education issues. Every 3rd year we combine conferences with the MKCS (MK Caregivers Summit) called MK Synergy.

History of MK Education:

In 1993, Richard Edlin (SIM missionary & Assist. Dir. for MK Education with ACSI) gathered mission personnel with MK Education responsibilities. The first meeting was held at SIL offices in Dallas. At that meeting, there was a vote to redirect the focus of those gathering for broader issues of MK care and missionary family issues. The group separated into two consultations, one called MK Caregivers Consultation (MKCC) discussing broader MK and family issues, and one called Intermission MK Education Consultation (IMKEC) focusing mainly on the educational needs of missionary families.

In 2020, IMKEC was renamed MK Education Summit (MKES) and signed an MOU with Interaction International to be the host organization.
