Mission:  Sawyer Highland’s and Converge Community Church’s Christian Education Ministry exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ by spreading a passion for the supremacy of God in all things.

Vision:  …that the next generation might set their hope in God! Psalm 78:1-7

We desire to…

…encourage, equip, and partner with parents in their God-given responsibility to disciple their children.

…teach and model God’s truths with the hope that our children and our children’s children know Christ so that whatever they do, they do to the glory of God, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.

…be humble and teachable as we present the truths of God so that people of our community may find pleasure in the worship of God and teach about Him to all people.

…study Scripture and biblical theology so that we will not be children in our thinking.

…have well-equipped teachers using God-centered curriculum modeling biblical truths with the hope of leading children to recognize their sinful state and to respond in repentance and faith in God.

…teach so that our adults would see God supreme in all things and may pass this truth on to our children, thereby generation after generation will spread the fragrance of the knowledge of Christ everywhere.
