GAiN2018 - Global Adventist Internet Network
July 03, 2018

As Seventh-day Adventists, we believe our mission is to reach every human being on the face of the Earth. When we look at the world and contemplate the seemingly impossible task God has given us, it is easy to despair or ignore the mandate.

It is clear we must unite as a church to communicate our valuable message. This is only possible by effectively maneuvering within the digital landscape. Therefore, we believe #GAIN18 has the singular purpose of inspiring every communicator, technician, and administrator to give our mission the greatest priority.

This year GAIN will be held alongside the International Mission Congress, organized by the Northern Asia-Pacific Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. 4,000 missionaries and gospel workers from China, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Mongolia, Taiwan, and Korea will come to Seoul, South Korea, to share stories and experiences of God’s grace in their mission fields. In the evening, GAiN participants will join with these missionaries from all over the world to experience powerful presentations that bring the mission of the Adventist Church to life. We believe these two events will inspire you to heed Christ’s call to reach the world – MISSION FIRST

News Summit

A new addition to the GAiN pre-meeting line-up, the News Summit aims to bring Adventist journalists and communicators together to discuss new software, global initiatives, and trends –all in the area of news. Our goal is to create a global network to make the Adventist Church the largest news agency in the world.
