Adventist Schools Build Students' Faith
The picture shows Aelora Edginton, an 8th-grade student at Boise Valley Adventist School (BVAS), delivering the sermon for Impact Sabbath at Cloverdale Seventh-day Adventist church. It is a Sabbath that includes the entire student body and allows them to participate in every aspect of the church service from prelude to postlude. Aelora Edginton challenged us as Christians to be disciplined in our walk with God.
One of the largest studies was the set of Valuegenesis surveys, conducted over a 20-year period, from 1990 to 2010. In the 2010 Valuegenesis3 survey, 82% of all students indicated that attending an Adventist school was the most important factor that had helped them develop their religious faith, with the Adventist school ranking more highly than any other factor.
