Keeping in Touch with God

Relationships are built on communication: conversations between two or more people. When we meet someone, we want to know what kind of person they are. We ask questions and then listen to what they have to say. They ask questions, and we answer honestly. 

Successful AHSRA 2024 Conference

AHSRA International successfully held its annual conference on the Andrews University campus in Michigan, USA, on May 22-25, 2024. It was attended by about 60 delegates (both in person and online). There were both in-person and virtual presentations. Most delegates came from the USA, Canada, the Philippines, Egypt, Brazil, the Netherlands, Papua New Guinea, Kenya, and Australia. Some of the Adventist institutions represented included, but are not limited to, Andrews University, Adventist International Institute of Advanced Studies, Southern Adventist University, Avondale University, Mountain View College, Pacific Adventist University, and the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventists. Dr. Safary Wa-Mbaleka shared with the delegates the research and evaluation work done here at ASTR and promoted collaboration and partnership opportunities. 

Celebrating Adventist Church Members’ Commitment to Health

As Seventh-day Adventists, we are called to honor our bodies as temples of the Holy Spirit and to uphold principles of health and wellness. The 2023 Global Church Members’ Survey provides valuable insights into how our community embraces the health message in belief and action. The data paint a compelling picture of Adventist church members’ dedication to healthful living around the globe.

ASTR published two volumes on the beliefs and practices of young people.
