Michael Campbell: “Apostate Missionaries: Narratives and Patterns of Missionaries Who Left Adventism” at Faith & Reason Sabbath School

(10:00 a.m. eastern / 9:00 a.m. central / 7:00 a.m. Pacific)

This Sabbath, Michael Campbell presents “Apostate Missionaries: Narratives and Patterns of Missionaries Who Left Adventism.

It is easy to celebrate the many Adventist heroes and success stories, but what about those who didn’t make it? Michael will examine “some of the lesser-known stories about missionaries who left Adventism, ‘bad’ missionaries if you please, who had their lives fall apart, apostatized, divorced, went insane, or de-converted.” In studying the golden era of Adventist missions in the 1920s, Michael says he “discovered many untold stories and has tried to analyze patterns and the complexity behind these supposedly ‘bad’ missionaries.”
Michael is the Director of Archives, Statistics, and Research for the North American Division. He and Heidi are active members of the Faith & Reason Sabbath School class and are frequent presenters.

Faith and Reason Sabbath School meets Sabbath, October 21, 10:00 am. Socializing starts at 9:30.
