“The teachers in our schools have a heavy responsibility to bear. They must be in words and character what they wish their students to be, -men and women that fear God and work righteousness. If they are acquainted with the way themselves, they can train the youth to walk in it. They will not only educate them in the sciences, but train them to have moral independence, to work for Jesus, and to take up burdens in his cause.” ( Review and Herald, August 26, 1884, par. 13)

My Philosophy on Christian Education is exemplified in the life of Joseph in Egypt. It is the harmonious blend of Academic Excellence and Spiritual Integrity. This is the foundation that every child of God must experience to be able to perform in this world and be prepared for the heavenly. Joseph’s life reveals how we can have opportunities open to us as we do our part with a spirit of excellence.

“True education…prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for higher joy of wider service in the world to come.” CCh 202.2

What a person does, and what a person is, is determined by what has been learned in their earlier years. Knowledge sets a child up for success or failure, and it’s this knowledge that lasts a lifetime and the lifetimes of those that come after them. I believe that proper education is powermount because it is the foundation of every decision. The right type of learning molds and shapes generations. Therefore, if we want to change the world and raise a righteous generation, it starts with one school, one class, one loving teacher, and a willing student.

I believe that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is an environment where students can take educational risks in the sharing of ideas. In this environment, I function as a guide and role model for all aspects of Christ-centered learning.

At such a time as this, God has given me the desire of my heart to be a laborer in His vineyard where True Education is taught and where the Knowledge and Wisdom obtained is imparted to build and develop well-balanced minds.

Godly teachers are to prepare students for this life and for the life to come. Since the word of God is calculated to train us and our children to become men and women of God ( 2 Timothy 3:16,17 ), I believe that the Bible is to be our foundational book.

If we as educators have active supporting measures in place, all students no matter how slow their pace, will be capable of reaching significant benchmarks behaviorally and academically…I want students to do more than exist as they were made in the image of God and will one day be called to a higher service.

I believe true education empowers the student to bear responsibilities, to be leaders and have a strong character. Especially the youth must be taught that they are created in the image of God, hence becoming masters and not slaves of circumstances. To achieve this, the mind is to be turned to Christ, receiving His mind, and not be mere reflectors of other men’s thoughts.

Effective learning requires a positive collaboration between teacher, student, and parents grounded in God’s word, mutual respect, and trust. It is my goal to bring an open mind, provide a welcoming environment and high expectation to the classroom each day. “Higher than the highest human thought can reach is God’s ideal for His children. Godliness—Godlikeness—is THE GOAL to be reached.” GW 95.2

Jesus being the greatest teacher taught his students to love, forgive, serve others and to have faith in all things. If we adhere to the teachings of Jesus we will never lack and spiritual success will be our gain.

Medical Missionary Instructors

Medical Missionary

The Lord desires his church to be a perfect body,—not all arms, not all body without arms, but body and arms together,—and every member working as a part of the one great whole. As the right arm is connected with the body, so the health reform and medical missionary work is connected with the third angel’s message, and is to work efficiently as the right arm, for the defense of the body of truth. (Review and Herald, June 20, 1899, Art. A, par.10)

Mandy Wilder

Medical Missionary

Medical missionary work is the right hand of the gospel. It is necessary to the advancement of the cause of God. As through it men and women are led to see the importance of right habits of living, the saving power of the truth will be made known. Every city is to be entered by workers trained to do medical missionary work. As the right hand of the third angel’s message, God’s methods of treating disease will open doors for the entrance of present truth.{CH 219.2}

“The purpose of education is to glorify God; to enable men and women to answer the prayer, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10. God invites teachers to be His helping hand in carrying out this purpose. He asks them to bring into their work the principles of heaven, the A B C of true education.”
