Planting A Seed Of Faith


Reconnecting Ministries
Paul Richardson
About a million people who once worshiped in an Adventist church in North America have quit attending on a regular basis. There are a million unique stories why they left. The good news is, over 100,000 Adventists have reconnected during the past five years! We coordinate that ministry in North America and encourage it worldwide through our training events, resources and coaching services. The Church can have all kinds of evangelistic initiatives to get new people in the front door, but if the back door is swinging wide open, we have a retention problem.

If this is true in your congregation, conference, union or division, let us help you with a ministry of friends reaching friends who have taken a break from active church attendance.
