Our Adventist Heritage

Who are we as Adventists? Where have we come from, as a church? We know that it is by looking back that we can see how God has lead.

There are incredible stories of faith and heroism demonstrated in the lives of our early Adventist pioneers. Many of our spiritual ancestors endured bitter cold, oppressive heat, rain, snow, poor-quality and scanty food, smoke-filled accommodations, and separation from family in order to take the gospel to far regions by boat, sleigh, train, buggy, and foot. How did a handful of mostly non-wealthy visionaries build churches and establish publishing houses, hospitals, and schools in the early days of our Adventist movement? The miracle stories of God’s intervention coupled with the faith and sacrifice of His people abound!

Many years ago, the Atlantic Union Conference Teacher Bulletin produced a resource unit for teachers on Adventist History. Those materials are reprinted here – as part of a compilation of stories, activities and resources about our Seventh-day Adventist pioneers.

Special thanks go to The White Estate, and Adventist Heritage Ministry for helping to update our information and for giving permission to integrate their materials.

Previous volumes of The Teacher Bulletin have additional units/resources.
