Understanding Their Church
OKLAHOMA CITY – It is amazing how many children and adults do not know the organization of the church they attend, so the Oklahoma Conference leadership invited Parkview Adventist Academy students to tour and receive an educational lesson on how Oklahoma churches connect to the world church and to meet the conference office team.
After a lesson on the organization and structure of the Seventh-day Adventist Church by the Oklahoma Conference Education Director, Tim Kripps, and Youth Director, Daniel Ortega, students from grades 5-12 toured each department so the department heads and administrative assistants could explain to the students the jobs completed in each area.
The conference youth and education departments believe that it is imperative that our young people not only understand the basic structure of our church, but also feel personally connected with their leaders and feel that they are approachable and reachable.
