Summary
Abstract: This study was designed to identify the underlying factors that contributed to the formation and development of a faith-based, professional organization--the Seventh-day Adventist Health, Physical Education, Recreation Association (SDA-HPERA). The three Research Questions for this study were: (a) How have the values and mores of the SDA church influenced the SDA-HPERA's areas of emphasis as perceived by key informants? (b) What values and goals distinguish this organization from other similar entities? and (c) How has the development of the SDA-HPERA fit within Organizational Life Cycle Theory?Three primary findings from this study included: (a) key informants believed the values and mores of the SDA church are manifested through the SDA-HPERA's mission statement and ongoing efforts in areas such as the "body-temple" concept, healthy lifestyle principles, and service to others; (b) the spiritual dimension of the SDA-HPERA and its accompanying lifestyle values symbolized by the acronym NEWSTART are distinctive for physical education-related professional organizations; and (c) the development of the SDA-HPERA followed Quinn & Cameron's Organizational Life Cycle model (Quinn & Cameron, 1983). While the research questions provided specific focus for this study, other outcomes emerged from data analysis: (a) the formation and function of the SDA-HPERA has supported professionalism for physical educators within the Seventh-day Adventist church; (b) there is a perceived discrepancy between philosophy and practice of the Body-Mind-Spirit triad in SDA education; and (c) there is a long-standing discrepancy between policy and practice for interscholastic sports in SDA education
