3. Pastor: Do You Know What to do With a Church School?

What’s a dedicated pastor to do?
“How To Kill Adventist Education (And How To Give It A Fighting Chance!)” is the international best-seller that has helped move Adventist schools on three continents back into health. While written for a general audience, it can also help pastors understand clearly the mission of Adventist Education; what has caused its decline for the last 30+ years; and how to help a school that’s in trouble to thrive once again. Available in English, Spanish, and Korean.
