- New marketing and recruiting strategies promoting Adventist education
Valuegenesis I and II examined the faith maturity and loyalty of Adventist elementary and secondary students to Adventism and Christian faith. In contrast, CognitiveGenesis will focus on factors that are related to the academic quality of Adventist K-12 education. Together, these two major studies will provide valuable insights into two of the three components of the Adventist education triad – “the spiritual, mental, and physical.”
When youth and parents see that Adventist education delivers both spiritually and academically, there may be a growing group of young people who will choose to be part of Adventist education and as a result participate in the life of the church.
