COLUMBIA, SC (December 2019) – Frontline Ministries, Inc., and the Exodus Mandate Project announced the selection of Dr. Carole Adams as the recipient of the 2019 Dr. Robert Dreyfus Courageous Christian Leadership Award. Established by Frontline Ministries, Inc., in 2007, this award is presented annually to recognize and honor Christian leaders who have exhibited moral courage through their unique contribution to the Church by advancing Christianity in the culture and life of the nation. This contribution may run counter to the prevailing culture of the Church and society. The award was presented to her personally by Chaplain E. Ray Moore on December 13, 2019, in Chesapeake, VA. 

Carole Adams currently serves as the president of the Foundation for American Christian Education (F.A.C.E.), a national ministry to publish and teach America’s Christian history and method of education by biblical principles to restore Christian self-government and character to the individual, to families, to churches and to the nation. “I wish to ‘give honor where honor is due’ by expressing profound gratitude to my friend and colleague of three decades, Dr. Carole Adams, and for her life of exemplary service and continuous committed leadership in Principle Approach education,” said Max Lyons, Director of Teaching Services at F.A.C.E. Lyons also stated, “It is my honor to serve on the team Dr. Adams leads in this multi-generational plan for rebuilding the culture. How? Through the restoration of American Classical Biblical Education.” 

Dr. Adams serves as senior editor of The Noah Plan, a Principle Approach K-12 curriculum used in schools and home schools. She is the author of The Christian Idea of the Child—the seedbed philosophy statement of The Noah Plan curriculum. She authored [The Noah Plan English Language Curriculum Guide and Classic Grammar], the English program based upon classic literature and the Bible. Dr. Adams is the editor of The Journal of the Foundation for American Christian Education, an academic journal that features articles on prominent historical themes and figures that advanced the cause of liberty in America and beyond. 

Dr. Adams founded StoneBridge School in 1980 in Chesapeake, VA, with her husband, John. She served as teacher and headmaster for 21 years and continues to serve faithfully on its board. StoneBridge School serves as a National Demonstration School for F.A.C.E. and is known nationally as a model school producing exemplary PEERS test scores, glowing academics and students who manifest Christian self-government and Christian character. Dr. Adams has taught and demonstrated American Christian Education for over 40 years, using the methodology of the Principle Approach, which in the words of Miss Rosalie Slater, is “America’s historic Christian method of Biblical reasoning which makes the Truths of God’s Word the basis of every subject in the curriculum.” 

Dr. Adams holds a commendation from the Commonwealth of VA General Assembly for her “educational accomplishments on behalf of the young citizens of the Commonwealth.” Chaplain E. Ray 

Moore, president of Frontline Ministries, Inc., and director of the Exodus Mandate Project noted, “I believe Carole is one of the top ten female Christian leaders in the nation.”
