Mission Trips

AJA Mission Trip 2013

It is now AJA’s custom to participate in a mission trip during the course of the school year.   Last year the mission trip was to Camp Wakonda where students at AJA earned the reputation of being helpful and hard-working.  In fact, it went so well that Pastor Greg Taylor personally invited us back for this year’s mission trip.  He even offered to take us out for ice cream to sweeten the deal.  How could we refuse?  Take time to view the pictures.

Again the students at AJA lived up to their reputation and contributed whole heartedly and with smiles to the work that had to be done at Camp Wakonda.  As their teacher, I was very proud of the effort and positive attitudes of each and every one of them.  Pastor Greg and the other workers at Camp constantly showered our team with gratitude and it warmed our hearts knowing we had been a blessing.   It is my hope that they carry a service oriented spirit throughout the rest of their lives and always seek to be a light in their homes, communities, and in their world. 

“Is not this the work that every youth should be seeking to do, working in Christ’s lines? You have Christ’s help. The ideas of the students will broaden. They will be far reaching, and the powers of usefulness, even in your student’s life, will be continually growing. The arms, the hands, which God has given, are to be used in doing good which shall bear the signet of heaven, that you can at last hear the “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” {AH 510.1}

Definition

BibleThe term “Bible Labs” indicates that the religious knowledge acquired by the students in Bible classes is to be used in a practical way to fulfill the mission of the church in the community and in the world.

Goals

Some of the important goals of Bible Labs are:

  • To encourage students to deepen their personal commitment to Jesus
  • To help students identify and develop their individual God-given gifts
  • To assist students in the development of knowledge and skills necessary to serve others
  • To involve students in a variety of witnessing and service activities appropriate to their age, spiritual experience, and skill development level
  • To teach students how to relate to other people
  • To allow students to assist the local churches in meeting their missionary objectives
  • To help fulfill the unique philosophy on witnessing that is a part of Adventist education

Philosophy

The Bible Labs concept is founded on the philosophy that Christian education is Christ centered, Bible based, and service structured. Students who attend AJA are led to know Chirst as their personal Savior, to develop a character and a lifestyle based on biblical principles, and to be trained to use their knowledge and skills to serve others. By involving students in the lives of others through service and outreach projects, they become acquainted with the needs of people in the world around them. Consequently, the students learn how their own talents and skills can be used to meet these needs.
