Imagine 6,000+ Adventist churches, with more than 1,200,000 members showing the love of God and the compassion of Jesus in practical ways in their communities each month!

NAD is encouraging each church to set aside this time for intentional community outreach, tending to the needs of people in our neighborhoods.
