North Dallas Adventist Academy Dedication
RICHARDSON, TEX. – On Sept. 21, 2019, the Canyon Creek campus was officially dedicated for use to glorify God.
Purchased in Jan. 2017, the 186,000 square-foot building offers much-needed room for North Dallas Adventist Academy (NDAA) who had reached capacity at their Centennial Boulevard campus. In addition to the classroom space, the facility includes a 1,400-seat sanctuary, two gymnasiums, a cafeteria and commercial kitchen and two fully stocked science labs along with its contents—everything from laboratory beakers and microscopes to musical instruments and a library full of books. Because of this huge blessing, NDAA was able to share classroom and office furniture with six other Adventist schools in Texas and one in Mexico.
Dedication audience members were challenged by Carlos Craig, Texas Conference president, and Terry Foster, NDAA head of school, to bless others through this beautiful facility. The academy’s orchestra, middle school choir and upper school choir performed. The program ended with each attendee lighting a candle and sharing the flame with their neighbor, symbolizing their commitment to sharing the gospel with those around them.
The Canyon Creek facility is currently home to the Canyon Creek Project Church, North Dallas Adventist Academy (grades K4-12), Spring Valley Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Church, Dallas New Life Korean Seventh-day Adventist Church, an independently owned and operated daycare and two additional renter churches.
