Adventist Church on BiggyTV

Sample video from theadventistchannel.com


The Adventist Church has partnered with a video distributor's website, Biggy TV for getting professional Seventh-day Adventist-produced videos "to a vast and largely untapped Internet audience."


Content on The Adventist Channel -- ranging from health and wellness programs to music and mission videos -- can be added directly to North America's more than 5,500 individual church Web sites, says Fred Kinsey, the region's church communication director.


"We're offering incredible content a church in, say, Omaha, Nebraska, can't get by itself," says Kinsey. "Digital video of this quality would be too expensive to create and distribute. It's free for us, so it's free for them." According to Kinsey, The Adventist Channel will add a dozen new videos each week.


The Adventist Channel, he adds, is not meant to replace or meddle with other church media, such as Hope Television. We want to figure out how to 'cross-pollinate' between HopeTV and The Adventist Channel.

Hymns and Noah


If you can't read what the picture say, here's it is:

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah's Ark.....


1.) Don't miss the boat.

2.) Remember that we're all in the same boat.

3.) Plan ahead, it wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.

4.) Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.

5.) Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that has to be done.

6.) Build your future on high ground.

7.) For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

8.) Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

9.) When you're stressed, float a while.

10.) Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

11.) No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting. :)

New Adventist Reality/Documentary

• "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." - Genesis 1:1

• "In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands." - Psalms 102:25

• "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." - John 1:1

It's pretty straightforward, yet a lot of people believe differently. In the latest documentary/reality show by director and producer Paul Kim, takes two college students, Tiffany and Matt, on 7,500-mile road trip across the U.S. They travel to different places such as the Grand Canyon, Southern California, Wyoming, Maryland, and Tennessee. They interview experts and bystanders, asking them how we got here, and compare it to what the Bible says.

I found it a lot of fun to watch on Sabbath afternoons. You can watch the series on the Hope Channel, or you can watch the individual episodes online. You can buy the entire series at AdventSource.

Adventist MySpace?

We all know what MySpace, Facebook, and Xanga are. We don't even say: "Myspace.com" 'cause we all know where to find it. The General Conference Youth department is working on a social networking website for Adventist youth. They want to make a place without bad ads or bad content. A place where you can click to find out what the church is doing for us, what volunteer project are going on, etc.., all in the same site.

The idea is still an idea, and hasn't been made into a website. The department would like to know if anyone would be interested and if they'd switch from their MySpace or Facebook to this new one... You can find out more information on the project by going to the World Youth Ministries Director's blog. Oh and you could also win a free iPod Shuffle...

Perhaps in a couple of years we'll also call this new website by its first name! ;)
