“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” (2 Corinthians 5:20)
With these words, the Apostle Paul challenges each one of us to be representatives for Christ and His kingdom.
The Public Affairs and Religious Liberty department of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is more than just an office at the General Conference. PARL exists at every level of church administration—divisions, unions, and conferences—and in many local churches as well.
If you are interested in learning more about what it means to be an ambassador for your church, this free manual brings together a wealth of information and ideas that can be adapted for your local context. Learn everything from how to introduce a VIP at a special event, to writing letters to public officials, to setting up a regional religious liberty association. This easy-to-read, practical manual is a good place to start for anyone who would like to partner with PARL in raising the profile of the Adventist Church and its services, and being a voice for religious freedom.
