Sabbath Offering to Support Washington Adventist University

Story by Donna Bigler

The Columbia Union Conference has designated January 31 as WAU Sabbath, when churches will highlight the advantages of a Christian education and the many accomplishments of Washington Adventist University, located in Takoma Park, Md. Offerings will help support Washington Adventist University’s 1,200 students and the university’s continuing efforts to engage minds and transform lives.

Of note is the university’s on-campus revival last year that resulted in more than 70 baptisms and three mission trips that resulted in 153 more baptisms. In addition, WAU’s graduation rate is now 67 percent higher than it was five years ago, and a record number of graduate students enrolled this past fall.
