This month we at NAD Ministerial have retooled our entire communication family around the central concept that story is the most powerful tool to expedite change. From our redesigned Best Practices email newsletter family, to our brand-new website; story is king.
Adventist Churches in North America are entering a time of great challenge and opportunity; both in the country of the United States, and within the Seventh-day Adventist denomination. NAD Ministerial is positioned to support pastors as you leverage these opportunities for the kingdom of God.
One of the most powerful ways we can serve is to tell the stories of pastors who are turning challenge into opportunity. Pastors are the ‘R&D engineers’ for the Adventist denomination. Week in and week out you seek ways to equip your congregations for renewed relevance in a rapidly changing social landscape. As pastors, we learn best from each other. Telling your stories is the key to inspiration and education.
As pastors share your stories with NAD Ministerial, we promise to curate them through our website, through Best Practices email, and through our CALLED digital magazine. Because pastors are busy people, our new format allows you to scroll through the stories rapidly and dig deep into stories that have the most relevance to your particular setting. Each story has a captivating picture, compelling caption, click through to read the entire story, and social engagement.
We started the website from scratch, building it to highlight pastoral stories. The new website, www.nadministerial.com, is optimized for any size device, including smartphones, electronic tablets, laptop and desktop computers.
Our storytelling platform is now up and running. We just need you to share your stories of what God is doing with you and your congregation to turn current challenges into ministry opportunities. We are now offering a modest financial compensation for your stories. Please send your stories to me and we’ll curate them for you. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
