“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.
One plan of action towards rebuilding mindsets and realizing our mission centers around collaboration. The 2019 Adventist Ministries Convention will inspire ministry leaders to put this plan into action, underwriting the renewed standard of working together to build up efficiency and morale, resulting in deposits of souls to the heavenly kingdom; hastening God’s return!
