Shiloh Excel Christian School

Dedication of School Campus and New Facilities
December 21, 2020

LITTLE ROCK – Shiloh Excel Christian School in Little Rock, Ark., held a campus dedication service on Oct. 3, 2020. The event celebrated the latest phase of a project that establishes a school campus and places onsite two facilities for the delivery of Christian Education. While observing COVID-19 guidelines for physical distancing and outdoors events, the program was broadcast live through Zoom for church membership and guest participation. On hand, joining Principal Dawn Smith, the school board and selected students in the celebration, were the speaker for the event, Southwest Region Executive Secretary Stephen Brooks and Education Superintendent Buford Griffith III, who dedicated the campus to the service of youth evangelism. 

Through God’s grace, the Holy Spirit and by His many miracles, doors have been opened for this project that is sponsored by the host church, Shiloh Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Lord has led as the school, church and local firms have partnered to make the campus a reality. The Holy Spirit impressed firms such as Garver to donate countless hours of architect and engineering support. With Garver’s leadership assistance the school’s plans are moving forward. The school has been blessed by “GarverGives,” the company’s corporate giving program which has donated resources and funds for the project. Construction is performed in partnership with Tri-States International Building Systems, a respected minority-owned firm and Alessi Keyes Construction, a prominent Arkansas construction firm. Both firms are teaming with subcontractors as community service or at the firm’s cost only.

“We believe that evangelism and education go hand in hand,” according to Kerwin Jones, pastor. “This project is part of our mission to serve the community and equip children with the necessary skills and knowledge to be effective contributors to society and prepare them for the world to come.”
