The Seventh Day Baptist Christian Education Council (CEC) promotes the cause of education among our churches. Whether it is Sabbath School lessons for the very young or the mature learner, or innovative youth programs, the CEC plans and produces study tools for the enrichment of all SDBs.
The Council plays an important part in the leadership development of our youth and young adults through our various ministries, including sponsoring Children’s and Youth Conferences for five different age groups at our yearly General Conference sessions.
The Helping Hand and The Sabbath Visitor, two Seventh Day Baptist periodicals, are produced by the Christian Education Council. Through publications, workshops, and retreats, the Council seeks to nurture our people in a life-style that is pleasing to God.
