You’ve read that I am a former Seventh-day Adventist minister, but you may be interested in knowing that I host a community group for those with similar backgrounds, like formers, inactives, questioning SDA’s, almost SDA’s, family of SDA’s, and those exploring their faith in evangelical fellowship without losing hold of identifying biblical truth.
Our Former Adventist Community Group is not a place to compile proof texts, rehash complaints, hate on our past, or convince ourselves regarding theological positions, but an opportunity to listen, ask questions, and sort things out about growing in faith from this day forward.
We may talk theology, share a text, or give voice to past hurts but generally speaking I believe it is healthier to find gratitude in the positive experiences of our Adventist background and develop a spiritual growth plan to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In 2019 I reached a milestone: I have been out of Adventism longer than I was in Adventism. I still maintain a friendship with many of my former parishioners and a pastoral relationship with some, although they remain active in their local SDA congregations.
Outside of Adventism we’ve been aware how the denomination that once herald for lawfulness is in a hypocritical mess by lawlessness among its organizational leaders defying the GC policy on women ordination. We see the church reputation for liberal political social justice becoming prominent over its once biblical mandate of unadulterated evangelism.
Whatever your reason may be for looking outside the SDA walls, our Former Adventist Community Group is here to help you find authentic fellowship with like -minded believers without criticism or pressure.
Please contact me for current meeting times.
We meet once a month, usually on a Thursday evening at CrossHope Chapel in west Mobile, Alabama or a Saturday morning and sometimes at area coffee shops, too.
Please contact me to verify the meeting for that week, or to just express your interest and any questions you may have.
