The Adventist Christian Fellowship (ACF) met for its annual 10-day ACF Institute, held at Union College in Lincoln, Neb. this year. ACF helps Adventist students who are attending non-Adventist colleges/universities to launch, grow and sustain an Adventist ministry on their campus. 
     Under the direction of ACF/NAD Volunteer Coordinator Ron Pickell, the ACF Institute attendees received training in the area of ministry philosophy, campus practics such as starting a ministry from scratch and developing an academic year ministry calendar, experiencing on-campus outreach and Christian apologetics to help strengthen their own faith.

REACH: Alignment within the Church
Making Adventist Education Affordable



The Paw Paw Church in Mich. was inspired several years ago by a Kalamazoo, Mich. public school program giving students a chance to attend college free. With the goal to eventually provide for the entire expense of their current Education Plan and support their kids in perpetuity, they established the Paw Paw Promise endowment. They currently support 25 children in six different schools. Read MORE in the May, 2014 issue of the Lake Union Herald, p. 29. Photo by Anndrea Taylor
