Reconnecting Ministries
Welcome to a ministry that has amazing potential for revitalizing the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Every Sabbath over one million former or inactive Seventh-day Adventists are not in a local congregation somewhere in Bermuda, Canada or the United States. The attendance number in our churches would change dramatically if all these people came back!

However, reconnecting with former or inactive members doesn’t happen with the wave of a magic wand. Your attitude about inactives, your words and actions toward them, and your commitment over time needs to be loving, accepting and forgiving.

The section of our website features ideas, resources and people who are dedicated to staying connected with Adventist members who no longer frequent our gatherings. We welcome your feedback and ideas.

Welcome Home Sabbath - November 21, 2015 - Many inactive members start thinking about church during the holiday season. That’s why the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America designates the Sabbath before Thanksgiving (in the United States) as a day to invite friends and family to come back to church.

Reconnecting Ministries - About a million people who once worshiped in an Adventist church in North America have quit attending regularly. Paul Richardson, Coordinator for NAD Reconnecting Ministries, offers training presentations or coaching.

Reconnecting Through Prayer - Prayer is powerful. God works miracles through prayer. And God works miracles through actions that are prompted by prayer. Around the world many are praying for loved ones who have quit attending church.
