Principles of Applied Christian Education
What is PACE? PACE is a series of interactive, hands-on workshops that deals with the needs of our spiritual life today.
The Sabbath School PACE will cover modules such as:
- Purpose of the Sabbath School
- Branch Sabbath Schools
- Finishing the work
- and much more…
Who is PACE for? All who wish to see Jesus coming soon and who want to fulfil the mission given in Matthew 28 to go into the “whole world… and teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.”
