Vice President for Education Message (Fall 2015)

And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, "Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?" Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me." (2 Kings 2:9)

Have you ever prayed for a double portion? Elijah knew it would be hard to follow a great leader like Moses so he asked for a double portion.

We all desire a blessing for our children so join me in asking for a double portion for our schools, children, families and teachers at this critical time in earth’s history. 


Leading children to Christ through loving, learning, and living.


Growing mature disciples through collaborative relationships.

GCC Schools and Philosophy

The Office of Education serves a total of 37 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.
