The Sabbath School/Personal Ministries Department was established as a major setting for religious education in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It exists to teach and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. To honor this original purpose, the Sabbath School/Personal Ministries Department communicates the good news with the objective to win, hold, and train for Jesus Christ, men, women, youth, boys and girls, throughout the world. The Department provides Sabbath School Bible Study Guides, designs material for Sabbath School programming, offers training and resources to teachers and members, cooperates with the Office of Mission Awareness in the promotion of support for world missions, and designs programs and resources to help those areas of the world where church growth is limited.
Departmental Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide resources and training for Sabbath School and for membership involvement in active soul-winning service to God.
Our vision is to have all our Sabbath School members diligently studying their Bible and Sabbath School Study Guide (SSSG) on a daily basis and 75% of our church members actively involved in soul winning.
