vision for the future of Adventist Today
."I'm delighted to join a talented staff and strong support base-people who care about things like balance, honesty, and excellence in the Adventist Church

shouldn't be the most well written, most well produced, most professional magazine in the church.We also need to be full color starting January, so we'll be grateful to everyone who can help us achieve this financially."
