In August 2009, Spectrum welcomed its newest team member, David Trim—a scholar with a wide variety of interests and a very unique area of specialty. Here is a sampling of discussions on European Adventism, race relations in the British church, and religious violence.

RD: You have quite an international background. You are British, but you were born in India and you grew up in Australia. Where do you consider yourself to be from? How do you bring to together your various ethnic identities?

Since 1991, the annual Ultimate Workout short-term mission trip has been a catalyst for spiritual growth and leadership development in the lives of North American Adventist teenagers. July 2009 marked Ultimate Workout 19, which was held in the city of Puyo, Ecuador. 175 young people participated this year, dividing into five small groups of 25-40 each for this two-week experience. One of the groups tried something new: a leadership team made up exclusively of teenagers.
