Abstract

This chapter reports on how teachers employed in Seventh-day Adventist Schools in the Solomon Islands understand the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It explores the analysis of responses to both the open-ended question “If I were asked, ‘What is the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church?’ I would say:” as well as to a question where participants were asked to rank the importance of activities the church could be doing as part of its mission. The responses were focussed largely on proclaiming the gospel and leading people to Christ. Limited consideration was given to the ongoing process of discipleship.
