Adventist Ministries Convention 2019

Date & Location: January 13-16, 2019. Albuquerque Convention Center, 401 2nd Street NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102.

Description: Stronger United: Many Voices, One Vision. "That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 15:6 KJV

The North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists has committed through its mission statement "to reach North America and the world with the distinctive, Christ-centered, Seventh-day Adventist message of Hope and Wholeness." There are many approaches to ministry that work to divide and distract from our divine assignments "to reach" the world with this message of salvation. Although, the areas of concentration in ministry are essential, ministries operating with the 'silo mentality' have become the new normal. Spreading the gospel is too important to continue with this as our normal.

Departmental ministries are essential, but ministries operating within 'silos' have become the new normal. The 2019 Adventist Ministries Convention will inspire ministry leaders around themes of collaboration, renewing standards of working together to build efficiencies and morale. Our goal is partnering with God's Spirit to reach everyone in North America with the Adventist message of Hope and Wholeness, adding souls to the heavenly kingdom and hastening Jesus' return!

Who Should Attend: All leaders assigned by their conference or union to give full, part time and/or volunteer coordination for ministry training and direction to local church leaders; administrators and denominational officers of boards and committees who oversee ministries implementation; pastors and other church professionals assigned by their conference or union to coordinate ministry development and training for local church leaders; publishers, media specialists and suppliers of materials and resources that support ministry activities; spouses of ministries leaders, spouses assigned by their conference or union to coordinate ministries should register as full attendees.

Featured Speakers: G. Alexander Bryant, Executive Secretary, North American Division; Shaunti Feldhahn, Social Researcher, Speaker and Author; Armando Miranda, Jr., Youth and Young Adult Ministries, North American Division.
