In fact, I counted how many places there were to sit at the gym. There were less than 50 chairs in the entire gym. This YMCA is one of the largest ones in the area, as far as membership, with thousands of members. Yet there in the gym, they have less than 50 places to sit.

Disaster Chaplaincy Training

Let's say there's a natural or man-made disaster that happens in one of our communities. You feel compelled to help. You want to respond and bring some compassionate aid to your local community.

You cannot just waltz into a disaster scene. You need training, and you need the proper certification.

Washington Conference will be hosting an emotional and spiritual responders training class on February 16-17 to help you obtain the certification to be a chaplain in a time of disaster and crisis. This highly sought after class is available to you for only $60 thanks to our ministry partners.

We're offering this certification training to you first, before opening it up to a wider and waiting disaster responders audience. Act now!

Adventist Education

Whole person growth in education offers students ample opportunities to encounter Christ, explore the big questions of life, and develop a biblical foundation for making every day choices that will impact eternity.

  1. Encountering Christ - students are encouraged to get to know Jesus personally and to build a lasting connection with their Savior

  2. Exploring Big Questions - students need space to wrestle through tough issues, practice solid reasoning, apply personal experience, and discover biblical truth

  3. Developing a Biblical Foundation for Life - students engage in an ongoing dialogue to develop critical thinking skills for navigating life with an end goal of eternal life

Ultimately, Adventist Education is redemptive, taking every stage of a young person’s mind, body and spirit development into consideration in learning, interaction, and discipline. We want our children to make it to the kingdom of God!
