Mission Statement: The mission of Communications Ministries is to complement, enhance and serve all the ministries of Abney Chapel through photography, telecommunication and technology to glorify the Lord.
The Vision of the Communication Department
is to present a favorable image of the Church, its mission, its life and activities, as well as to assist the Church in being an effective witness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
"Building bridges of hope" is the mission statement of the Seventh-day Adventist Church's Communication Department. We work toward this goal by reaching out to diverse church audiences -- both internally and externally -- through many avenues of communication. Creating informative and intuitive web sites, updating social media sites, and writing news stories and press releases are some of the ways we share our message. Through our work, we foster a clearer image of the church, its mission, activities and witness, so that many will become followers of Christ and members of His church
