​Pacific Press Board Votes to Approve $1 Million

The Pacific Press® Board of Directors met on
April 17, 2014, and voted to approve a $1 million initiative that will focus on
partnering with ministries to create new resources for evangelism and church
growth. In this initiative, known as A Million Streams of Light, Pacific
Press® will offer seed money to help church departmental ministries,
supportive ministries, and local church ministries create and develop new evangelistic
products and programs.

Dale Galusha, president of Pacific Press®, said “We asked
ourselves, ‘How can the church’s publishing work make a real difference in
ministry and outreach for our church?” He continued, “If we want to reach
people with the Adventist message there is a need for innovative new products
and programs. Ellen White wrote, ‘Men are needed who pray to God for wisdom,
and who, under guidance of God, can put new life into the old methods of labor
and can invent new plans and new methods of awakening the interest of church
members and reaching the men and women of the world.’ ”

Commenting after the Board meeting, Elder Dan Jackson, president
of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists noted, “The greatest
need the church has is for an engaged membership. The Million Streams of Light
initiative will provide an opportunity for our people to think creatively in
terms of how they may use their God-given ingenuity to complete their God-given
task in partnership with the publishing ministry.”

Elder Lowell Cooper, general vice president of the General
Conference of Seventh-day Adventists added, “It is heartening to see Pacific
Press® reaching out beyond its walls to find new ways to work with the
church and its people to create opportunities for ministry and mission to

The entire Pacific Press® Board enthusiastically endorsed
the Million Streams of Light initiative and they anticipate many innovative
developments in the upcoming months. Additional information on this initiative
will be made available shortly.
