Vice President for Education Message (Fall 2015)

In 1971 William Gaither wrote the song "Because He Lives". in the second verse the lyrics read, "This child can face uncertain days because He lives". Because He lives is a theme of Seventh-day Adventist education. If you desire to raise your child with a future of certainty that is embedded in trust let a Christian educator partner with you now. 


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.
