DIFFERENCE MAKERS


But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's delicacies. (Daniel 1:8)


Daniel did not let the temptations of his day interfere with his relationship to the Lord. He knew that to make his life useful to God he must be obedient in all things. Regardless of what the most powerful king in the world commanded, Daniel refused to compromise what he knew God required of him.


What has God purposed for the life of your children? Could your daughter be an Esther strategically placed in the king’s court at a crucial time when she could save the lives of God’s people (Esther 4:14). Might your son be a Joseph growing to become the most powerful adviser to the pharaoh in Egypt (Gen. 41:39–40).

Position your children now to become all God intends for them to be by investing in Christian Education.

GCC Schools and Philosophy

The Office of Education serves a total of 39 schools in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.  Our team is committed to supporting churches and schools as they prepare students for the kingdom and a joyful life of service as outlined in North American Division - "Journey to Excellence" and the Adventist EDGE call to action. Schools are accredited by various entities including state and private sectors.

In Georgia-Cumberland Conference, we value every child as a unique individual, created in the image of God with distinctive gifts, talents, and abilities. As Seventh-day Adventist educators, it is our belief that the work of true education is to equip students to think and to act with breadth of mind, clearness of thought, and the courage of their convictions. We believe that each child has a special purpose for being placed on this earth. With this in mind, we seek to provide every opportunity for the spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth of every student entrusted to our care. It is our fervent prayer and aim to perceive infinite possibilities in our students–inspiring them to love learning, respect others, and develop a character in the likeness of the Creator.
