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.
