What is Reach North American Division? ReachNAD is a church-based strategy for accomplishing mission with excellence. It is not a program. The Reach strategy consists of the following (click on each for more detail):
- A mission statement to guide the direction of churches throughout the NAD. This Christ-centered statement focuses on reaching people in our territory with two Adventist distinctives: “hope” and “wholeness.”
- A set of REACH organizational values that define what is of most important to us as a Church. These five values were arrived at after months of input and discussion. They may be helpful to you.
Strategic priorities, such as the Building Blocks, that help us attain our mission. Strategic priorities are big, audacious goals that are multi-year in scope but that change from time to time as new situations emerge.
- A process for becoming mission-driven church organizations of excellence—a five-step process is described in the book Becoming a Mission-driven Church (Pacific Press, 2015). A “must” for every church pastor, church board member, and church officer.
We are diverse—our churches, conference offices, schools, and health-care organizations. Yet, we all share one thing in common: Mission! Our common mission is to “reach the NAD with the Christ-centered message of Hope and Wholeness.” ReachNAD, therefore, is all of us. ReachNAD is YOU!
