Took place on March 13, 2021

This was a live, online celebration of Adventist education

The Blessing

You can still help more kids experience Adventist Education by donating to K-12 scholarships.

On March 13th the Oregon Conference held a virtual celebration of our schools. As part of that celebration we premiered a very special virtual choir of our kids, led by Zach Parks, called The Blessing. If you missed the event, want to share it, or just want to watch it again, check out the whole event below, or watch just The Blessing.

who we are

Adventist Education has been the growing grounds for the Oregon Conference for well over 100 years. Currently we operate 32 K-12 schools that serve 2400 students within the Oregon Conference. We are very proud of our school administrators and teachers. It is amazing to see the growth in our children when they feel safe as a valued member of their school family.

Our number one goal in Adventist Education is to bring our students into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We are so excited to see our young people make life changing decisions that truly will last for an eternity.

We thank you for remembering our next generation. They will soon sit where we sit and make the decisions that we deem important. The quality of those decisions will depend on how well we teach them. Let’s teach them well.
