    BMX, drugs and finding Jesus

    Share this video with someone who needs to be inspired. Greg Fernance gained severe epilepsy after his third major BMX accident. Doctors told him that he’d never walk or drive again, so he lost all hope. He started drinking, taking drugs, stealing and tattooing skulls on his body. This all changed when he met his local pastor. Thanks to God’s power, Greg is a transformed man. He is now the pastor of Grafton Seventh-day Adventist church.

    Greg’s story appeared in the August 2022 edition of Signs of the Times. If you can’t get enough of this amazing story, Signs also recorded this live interview with Greg, which is also available as episode 175 of the podcast Signs of the Times Radio. And if that’s not enough, Greg’s wife Bonita has an amazing story as well!

        Make a difference by joining our research panel. It’s a fun opportunity to complete online surveys and help us be more effective in reaching people for Jesus. It’s completely free and you can choose to opt out at any time you want!

        Who can join?

        Everyone is welcome to join, from adults to kids (those younger than 18 will need to provide a parents/guardians email). You don’t need to be an expert on any topic, just be willing to share your opinion.

        What happens?

        What are the surveys about?

        The surveys may cover a wide range of projects we are involved in such as testing designs, ideas for new products or checking content that we create. We’ll sometimes ask you about awareness of different ministries and find out what you think about them. You don’t need to have any expertise in these areas and there are no wrong answers. 

        How often will I get asked to do a survey?

        At this stage we are planning approximately ten surveys per year, although the actual number may be fewer.

          Innovation Brings Inspiration

          There are now more opportunities than ever before to share a message of hope and the transforming story of Jesus. Godpods are handheld solar-powered mp3 devices containing an audio version of the Bible, narrated in the local language.

          Thousands of Godpods have already been distributed into remote parts of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands. With your help, thousands more people can receive Godpods and hear the good news of the gospel for themselves. Prepare the soil for TMI.

          FREE online event – register to receive the meeting link

          Imagine your church reaching far beyond the walls of a building. You know there’s more to it than just streaming services and posting on social media … but where do you start? Using his experience as one of the first online pastors in the world, Dave Adamson will share some practical insights to help ministries of all sizes effectively use technology to reach people and make disciples. Join us for this important online presentation from one of the leading digital ministry leaders in the world.

          Dave Adamson, who is known to most people as AussieDave, has been in full-time ministry since 2008.

          Up to then, he was a successful TV sports reporter for Channel 10 in Australia, until God called him to move his family to the US to serve at two of Outreach Magazine’s largest churches in North America, including serving as a pastor on staff at North Point Ministries in Atlanta, one of the largest churches in the US. Here he learned that the growth engine of any successful church is Family Ministries.

          In 2020, Dave and his family returned to Australia so he could become the Director of Orange Australia and New Zealand. Orange is a church strategy company, best known for its kids and student curriculum used by churches around the world. Dave is the host of the Think Orange Podcast for Family Ministries leaders, and is a well-known speaker at events, including Orange Conference.

          He has also worked with ministries and non-profits worldwide to help them develop strategies and systems for reaching more people online. He has partnered with organizations including Compassion International, YouVersion Bible App, Carey Nieuwhof, Australian Christian Churches, C3 Global and Alpha Australia.

          Dave also leads physical and virtual tours of the Holy Land, researches the 1st-century cultural context of Jesus and Hebrew words for his popular daily Instagram devotions and YouTube channel, and has written three books including 52 Hebrew Words Every Christian Should Know, and the best-seller, MetaChurch: How To Use Digital Ministry to Reach People And Make Disciples.

            Want to share your faith in your community but not sure how?

            Join us online to learn how to start being church in your community!

            Pastor Shawn Brace’s world began to shift one Friday night, after a close-knit gathering in a family home. “Why does church have to be more than this?” he asked himself. It was a question that led him into Scripture, paving the way for a fresh understanding of the mission and dynamics of God’s family—and eventually the re-launch of his church. Join Shawn to learn how to share your faith in a way that is relevant and meaningful to a post-Christian society.

            Shawn is a pastor in Bangor, Maine, and is a host of the Mission Lab podcast together with his wife CamilleHe has authored four books.

              What is graphic design?

              Graphic design is the craft of planning and creating visual content to communicate ideas and messages.

              Graphic design is everywhere you look — from church bulletins and posters to social media apps and e-newsletters. Through incorporating different elements and principles, these designs can influence our perception and emotions. At Adventist Media we offer a broad range of graphic design services.

              What we offer:

              Why choose us?

              Consistent Branding

              We can create templates for your ministry or church that will incorporate the Adventist Branding colours, fonts and styles.

              Have a consistent brand across your printed and digital material as well as adhering to the overall Adventist Identity of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the South Pacific.

              What is the lead time?

              In general, most jobs will require one to two weeks for design, but we will endeavour to meet your deadlines. The more information you can provide, the more efficient the design process will be.
