▶ Purpose
The purpose of the conference is to equip our teachers to be able to face the challenges of secularism in offering Adventist education. Adventist schools are mission fields. Considering the number of hours per week spent by thousands of teachers in thousands of schools for 3 to 6 years, Adventist education may be considered as the largest, the longest and the most productive evangelistic effort in the church.
