Adventist Education: A Powerful Tool by Jeremy Garlock
“Seventh-day Adventist education is a powerful tool in the hands of our Savior. The statistics are clear. Because of the constant exposure to Jesus, there is a greater probability of students in our schools accepting Him and staying in the church when compared to their counterparts. But even then, we need our Savior to be our Shepherd and look for those who are lost. He will work on the hearts that have turned away, often using what they learned in our schools to call them back to Him. What a magnificent Savior we have! And what a powerful tool He has given us in our education system.”
