Assistant to the President for Evangelism
The purpose of the Assistant to the President for Evangelism, Training and Development is to equip Adventist Pastors and Elders with appropriate skills and competencies to organize their members to effectively connect and share with others to build strong social relationships, increase the membership of their congregations annually and consolidate all members through appropriate methods, and eliminate or significantly reduce the high percent of inactive membership thereby increasing the number of church members who are active and faithful disciples of Christ.
The Bible School functions as a dynamic evangelistic tool, aimed at mobilizing every member into an effective and efficient outreach team while engaging individuals in actively studying God’s Word.
The School presently offers a wide variety of lessons such as Basic Bible Doctrines, Seven Steps, and The Believers, just to name a few.
Through our Free Bible correspondence courses, and other tracts we bring faith and hope to a dying world, and motivate every member to a life of Christian service.
Our Online Bible School has been under development since February 2020. Until it is complete, we are recommending you enjoy the >>> Let's Talk About Him Study Platform. <<<
Children & Adolescent Ministries
Christ's mandate to feed the lambs (John 21:5) and to let the children come to Him (Mark 10:13, 14) commissions the Church to evangelize children and nurture their spiritual growth. The Department of Children's Ministries is committed to equipping, facilitating, and coordinating a broadening and deepening of the Church's spiritual nurture of children to draw them into a close relationship with Christ and commitment to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. "Too much cannot be placed upon the early training of children. The lesson s learned, the habits formed, during the years of infancy and childhood, have more to do with the formation of the character and the direction of the life than have all the instructions and training of after year."-MH 380

Philosophy is the persistent attempt of man's intellect to understand and describe the world in which we live and of which we are a part. It is an effort to solve fundamental problems, to gain a comprehensive view of the universe and to find answers to questions on the origin, nature, and destiny of matter, energy, life, mind, good, and evil.
Family Ministries & Counselling Services
Scripture affirms the importance of the family and outlines the divine principles which govern family relationships. At creation, God instituted marriage - and with it the family (Genesis 2:18-25) - as God's primary setting for human development and nurturance. When Christ redeemed all human experience from the curse of sin, He redeemed marriage and family relationships. He calls family members to relate in ways that befit those who have responded to the gospel (Ephesians 5:21-6:4).
Christ ministered to the whole person. Following His example, the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church includes a ministr y of healing the whole person - body, mind, and spirit. The ministry of healing includes care and compassion for the sick and suffering and the maintenance of health.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church, in harmony with its mission to preach the Everlasting Gospel to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people (Rev. 14:6), establishes the Inter-American Division Publishing System, as a group of elements integrated with one another, through a policy which unites and organises them, with the purpose of fulfilling the mission of the Christ through missionary publications, both for the Church and the general public.
