Atlantic Caribbean Union Continues Training for Sabbath School Teachers
Dawne Forbes


The Advanced Online Certification for Sabbath School Teachers has been an ongoing process spearheaded by the Inter-American Division and coordinated by the Atlantic Caribbean Union within its territory of the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
“The purpose of this online certification is to teach new methods, give new ideas, and infuse new life in Sabbath Schools throughout the union,” says Pastor Leonardo Rahming, director of Sabbath School and Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA).
This certification is beneficial not only to those taking the course, but also to the wider church population. With teachers being effectively trained, it empowers them to take a more active approach in facilitating lesson discussions and motivates members to become more engaged in the study of God’s word as they use the Bible study guides.
According to Pastor Rahming, the Atlantic Caribbean Union has approximately 200 persons undergoing basic training and approximately 20 persons currently enrolled in the online certification program since its commencement in the first quarter of 2016. There are four courses with each course running for approximately 6-8 weeks. Graduation is expected to take place on February 24, 2018. Those interested in taking part in the Advanced Online Certification should contact their local conference/mission Sabbath School director.
