After three years leading the Intercollegiate Adventist Gay-Straight Alliance Coalition (IAGC), its president, Andrews University student Eliel Cruz, has handed leadership over to Jefferson Clark, a senior public relations and international studies major at Southern Adventist University.

IAGC is an unsanctioned but growing network of Gay-Straight Alliances on Adventist college campuses in North America.

It is our tradition to mark October 22, the day that the Seventh-day Adventist Church began, according to many. It is the day that the Millerite band expected their Lord to return to earth, and it is the day that he did not. The experience is captured in the words of Ellen White in "The Great Controversy," page 409.

I’m going to stick my neck out regarding a polarizing issue in the church: women’s ordination.

It’s become especially crucial to speak about this now with an important vote to be taken at the upcoming General Conference Session in 2015. Ever since I started researching the issue a few years ago, I’ve become increasingly drawn to one side. I’d like to share my thought process.

In response to sketchy reports about the major faith and science conference held in Utah this past August, several of my church members, non-scientists, asked me about the current state of Adventist belief regarding creation. This article is a revised version of a column I wrote for our church newsletter. -John McLarty

The Ellen G. White Estate has released Pitcairn, a new online game that helps Pathfinders earn the “God’s Messenger” honor.

The White Estate first unveiled the honor at the 2014 Forever Faithful International Pathfinder Camporee in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Pathfinders can earn the honor by achieving 200 or more points on either the Pitcairn game or the soon-to-be released free Pitcairn app.
