Adventist Women In Ministry: Progress or Regress?


The Azure Hills Church in Grand Terrace California has been hosting a multi-part series on Adventist history entitled “The Advent Movement: Progress or Regress?” In the video below, Kendra Haloviak Valentine, professor of New Testament Studies at La Sierra University, and Bert Haloviak, former archivist for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, uncover the story of Adventist women in ministry from the 19th Century to the current ordination debate.
