Do You Know the Answer?

How many high school aged students in our conference attend a Seventh-day Adventist Academy?  How many in our Union? How Many in our Division?

Five years after a student graduates from high school, how many are regularly attending a Seventh-day Adventist church?  How many attending 10 years after high school graduation?  What percent of academy students choose a Seventh-day Adventist college?  What percent of Seventh-day Adventist college students will spend time serving as a student missionary?  How does this compare to 10 years ago? 20 years ago? or 30 years ago? Do you know the answer?

I would like to have a conversation this Sunday 7:00 p.m. at the Gentry church.  I want to share about a ministry involving our academy students.  This is something I have decided to be involved with and I hope you will also.  If possible go to the Pioneer Memorial Church website and watch Dwight Nelson’s sermon from Aug. 17, 2019.  I hope to see you Sunday evening.   Sincerely, Ken Hanson
