The International Missions Department facilitates a growing worldwide network of Advent Christian ministries in the U.S. and 24 other countries. Our goal is to focus increasing energy on reaching unreached people groups with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to see Christ glorified among all people groups.
Most churches in North America are growing at a rate slower than the community in which they are located. The Department of Church Health aims to reverse this trend in our denomination in the U.S. and Canada. We serve declining and dying churches so they will be revitalized and move from surviving to thriving.
We are at a crucial stage as a denomination as we are far too short on pastors. We see this is an urgent and critical need for the next five years. Plans include developing partnerships with educational institutions to fill the immediate need in our U.S. churches. It is vital that we be working with one another to disciple the next generation.

The Advent Christian denominational offices exist to serve and strengthen the Advent Christian church. Reach out to us – you are not alone in your mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
