Frequently Asked Questions

What it is?

A video resource containing 12-15 mission stories, varying in length from two to ten minutes.  

Where it’s from?

The Office of Adventist Mission at the world headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Cost for your church?

Free (options for individual members are currently being explored).

How is this different from Mission Spotlight?

Through the new Adventist Mission DVD, we will have specific messages and stories to communicate to church members around the world. We will introduce you to those who are currently doing mission work, and to those whose lives have been changed as a result. 

Who is the intended audience for the Adventist Mission DVD?

It is for all members and friends of the church family.

Do we have to sign up to receive future Adventist Mission DVDs?

No, a copy will automatically be sent to your church.

How often will we receive a new Adventist Mission DVD?

We plan to send a new Adventist Mission DVD each quarter.

Do these stories correspond to this quarter’s mission offerings?

Some do, and some do not. The overall goal is to share stories that will show what mission offerings have accomplished, to thank members for their support, and to report on what still needs to be done.

Should we show all of the mission segments at once?

We recommend that the segments be shown over the course of a quarter. Also, it helps to remind members that ongoing support to the worldwide mission of the Church is important. 

What if we don’t show all of the stories before the quarter ends?

No problem. Just save them for another opportunity, or check out the suggestions below.

The Paparazzi Impostor

A sudden rush of activity around Malamulo Hospital piqued my curiosity. What is going on? I wondered.
