The Education Ministry is responsible for the coordination, promotion, training, and quality of the local Seventh-day Adventist educational program. The local program follows the global coordinated program which includes nearly 7,600 schools, colleges and universities, with over 80,000 teachers and 1,545,000 students.
Local Education Leaders work in close cooperation with the Education Department directors in the 13 world divisions, the staff offers services to boards, administrators, and faculty of Adventist colleges and universities worldwide.
The staff also provides support through and in participation with educational leaders at union/ conference/ mission levels and to teachers in Adventist elementary and secondary schools to ensure that the Adventist philosophy of education and the principles of faith-and-learning are integrated into the life of each institution.
Through the Global AMiCUS mission, the Department cooperates with Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries and the Youth Ministries Departments in nurturing the faith of Adventist students attending non-Adventist colleges and universities around the world.
