The goal of the Mid-America Church Ministries Department is to support and provide leadership as needed to the six local conferences of the Mid-America Union. These areas include: Children's Ministries, Young Adults, Sabbath School, Small Group Ministries, Health Ministries, Personal Ministries and Evangelism, Family Life and Recovery.
Support is given to existing union directors of Community Services through the Y.E.S. (Youth Emergency Services) program, Disabilities Ministries, and Women's Ministries.
Evangelism and Small Groups
The mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is to share the everlasting gospel with the entire world. The most effective way to accomplish that mission is through the administration of small groups in the local church. The Seventh-day Adventist Church takes the entire Bible as its authority. The books of Daniel and Revelation help in focusing on contemporary issues. Therefore, specific seminars and materials are provided to help pastors and churches in preaching the everlasting gospel as we look forward to Christ's soon return.
Family life covers a wide variety of ministries since so much of what impacts an individual's spiritual development happens as a result of family issues and needs. Seminars and materials for specific needs are provided and encouraged. Such seminars include materials for singles, pre-marital counseling, parenting skills, and marriage enrichment.
Recovery and Spiritual Development
The good news of the gospel extends to healing the brokenhearted, binding up the wounds of those who are emotionally damaged, setting at liberty those who are held captive by addiction, and aiding those who are victims of abuse. Specific seminars and materials for individuals and families seeking recovery from abuse, emotional damage, and depression are provided.
Young Adult Ministries
Utilizing the time and talents of young professionals is an important focus of the church. Support ministries are available to young adults attending colleges and universities. Social and mission outreach events are organized and provided each year.
