Our Goal

The goal of the education department is to encourage a broad level of achievement in its students and challenge schools to provide an advanced rigorous academic curriculum. We foster in students a knowledge of the true image of God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a love for Him through communion with the Holy Spirit. We challenge students to realize that it is their responsibility to obtain their highest potential on earth in mental, physical, and spiritual health.


We want our students to adopt a systematic, logical and rational approach to decision-making and problem solving based on a body of scientific, mathematical, historical, and social knowledge, within the context of a biblical perspective.


We want our students...

To emphasize both verbal and non-verbal communication skills to prepare them for global leadership. We foster in students a love for learning as modeled by teachers who consistently and critically seek new knowledge and engage in professional development. We also provide pastors, school boards and administrators with training on how to meet the financial needs necessary to accomplish the vision and mission of the conference.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
