Three Questions Every Young Person Asks by Tim Floyd
“These questions are best described in three words: identity, belonging and purpose. As parents and leaders of young people, our job is to direct them away from answers to these questions that come from popular culture, friends or social media and towards answers rooted in Christ’s view of who they are and who He made them to be.”

Fostering Spiritual Development in the Early Childhood Classroom by Heather Hauffe
“From birth, children have an innate expectation for caregivers to meet their needs. They begin life with faith and the ability to completely trust in their caregivers and what we present to them as true. Experience in this sin-laden world teaches us to doubt. Therefore, teaching children that they can trust in Jesus in these precious early years is extremely important.”

A Vision for Adventist Education by James C. Davis, Jr.
“Adventist education offers students a chance to learn about a God who loves them and has a plan for their lives. Adventist education will help students see the world through a different lens and inspire them to make a positive difference.”

Cutting Edge Hands-on Learning by Stephan Gray
Learn how a Southwestern Union Conference school “recently acquired a state of-the-art Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) lab through funding from the federal grant of Extra Assistance for Non-Public Schools (EANS) which was enacted to assist private schools … in the mitigation of learning loss due to COVID-19. The lab is equipped with the latest technology and resources to provide students with hands-on learning experiences in STEM subjects.”

The Object of Education by Keith Hallam
“Our world view doesn’t end with saving in sin but takes us to saving from sin. This learning of Jesus is our Adventist education mission. Specifically, our mission is: ‘To lead students to encounter Jesus, accept His gift of Salvation and follow Him.’ It is foundational to who we are and why our homes, schools and churches are so important to our spiritual health and character growth.”
