Ministry Description

Mission of the Education Department

The Education Department is part of the global Seventh-day Adventist educational system, and is responsible for the supervision, coordination, promotion, training, and quality of 54 schools, colleges and universities in the Northern Asia-Pacific Division. These institutions have approximately 1,155 teachers and 21,023 students, in addition to 49 language schools with 577 teachers and 114,532 students. (Statistics as of October, 2011).

Working in close cooperation with the Education Department Directors of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the union conference/mission Education Directors, it offers services to boards, administrators, and faculty of the Seventh-day Adventist K-12 schools, colleges and universities in Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea and Mongolia.

It also provides support through the union conference/mission educational leaders to teachers in Seventh-day Adventist K-12 schools, colleges and graduate schools to ensure that the Adventist philosophy of education and the principles of faith-and-learning are integrated into the life of each institution.

In addition, it cooperates with the departments of the Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries, Children's Ministries, Youth Ministries, and the Ministerial Association in nurturing the faith of Seventh-day Adventist students attending non-Seventh-day Adventist schools/colleges/universities in the region.
