The Seventh-day Adventist Church has endeavoured to proclaim its unique message of the nearness of Christ's return to the Maoris of New Zealand since 1885. In spite of repeated and intense efforts the results have been disappointingly meagre. The most success has been apparent when labours have been concentrated on the more practical needs that Maoris face. There is considerable evidence that Maoris still face serious problems in health and life-style, yet existing Adventist programmes relating to these matters do not attract a Maori audience. This project researches the reason why and seeks to establish effective life-style ministries to New Zealand Maoris.
