Abstract

This chapter reports the results of two questions related to the mission of the church which were contained in a survey administered to educators employed by Seventh-day Adventist Schools in North America. The first was an open ended question asking participants to put their understanding of the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in their own words. The second question asked participants to rate the importance of statements describing various things the church could be doing. Together, the answers to these questions provide important information on the priorities of the church through the eyes of educators.
