Seventh-day Adventists were not always committed to worldwide mission. Early Adventists were steeped in American particularism and national pride, preventing them from expanding their spiritual world view. As the pioneers adjusted their understanding, they faced doubts about whether such a small movement truly could “go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15, NKJV).

During its first four decades, the Seventh-day Adventist Church transitioned from a small North American sect to a worldwide movement. Still, more than a century after Ellen White’s death in 1915, the work is not yet done.

Everyone—from the senior living next door to the teenager growing up in a remote village across the globe—deserves to know about the Savior who died for us, was raised to life for us, and ministers in heaven for us, redeeming us from the wages of sin through His righteousness and leading us to healthful living and Sabbath rest.

Are we doing our duty today?

A Voice to Rouse the Nations is an illustrated history of Seventh-day Adventist missions work through 1915. Author David Trim explores the evolution of the pioneers’ beliefs and attitudes, introduces early overseas missionaries and their goals, and examines Ellen White’s role in the development and reform of the Church’s global mission work.

The adventure of the Great Commission beckons—will you answer the call?
