Ground Breaking Ceremony This Sunday
Jacksonville Adventist Academy and the Mandarin Seventh-day Adventist Church will hold a Ground Breaking Ceremony at 4298 Livingston Road in Jacksonville on April 2, 2017, at 1:00 p.m.
Phase I of the project, designed by Kasper Architects and Associates, includes a 12,000 square foot school renovation and a new 14,400 square foot gymnasium where worship services will be held until the Sanctuary is built, which is Phase II.
Jacksonville Adventist Academy (JAA) was established in Jacksonville in 1925 and has been at its current location since 1973. The school is set on almost 11 beautiful acres in the heart of Mandarin. With a mission to build leaders of integrity through academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment, JAA has certified teachers, a leadership program, learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom and provides an academically strong, Christian-based curriculum for grades Pre-K through 8th grade.
The Seventh-day Adventist church moved from Pearl Street to Mandarin across from the current school property in 1983. With a purpose of celebrating grace one person at a time, the church is focused on demonstrating grace to those in its congregation as well as those in its community at large. The church places a high emphasis on mentoring and nurturing young people, which is demonstrated in the renovations of its affiliated school, Jacksonville Adventist Academy.
Phase I of the construction project is projected to be completed by the end of 2017. The Ground Breaking Ceremony will include Ben Wygal, former president of FSCJ, and Frank Runnels, Education Superintendent of the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. The rich history and future plans for the school and church will be on display. There will be music, finger foods and the traditional turning of the dirt. Please join us.
