For several years, David Niño, the Chesapeake Conference Highland View Academy’s (HVA) music director, has pondered how to share with the rest of the world what he and his students do in the classroom.

Traditionally, the music curriculum emphasizes music standards that focus on students’ artistic, cognitive, creative and spiritual aspects. While the goal is always to provide a sound educational program, HVA also generates valuable opportunities for students to make an impact on the lives of others.

Earlier this year, a team of 15 Chesapeake Conference pastors embarked on a mission trip to Roatan, Honduras, to share the Adventist message of hope. Daily meetings were held at 16 sites throughout the island, where each pastor delivered sermons from the Revelation Today series, sharing the hope and promise of Christ’s return. Pastors visited and prayed with members and visitors, held nightly meetings sharing biblical doctrines, while calling all in attendance to give their hearts to Jesus.
