Adventist laypeople who run supporting ministries, own their own businesses, or are in the professional world are invited to join Adventist-Laymen’s Services and Industries (ASI). ASI is an enthusiastic group of committed Adventists who are seeking to grow in their discipleship for the Master. This organization provides training and motivational fellowship for sharing Christ in the marketplace.
There are institutions of education, health services, and various outreach ministries that are not operated directly through the Adventist Church organization. These ministries are called “self-supporting.” They operate without any financial subsidy from the church itself, yet they seek to advance the mission of the Adventist Church. ASI is their organization of support for fellowship as well as fund-raising.
ASI is organized on the Union level and has a meeting each spring. The National ASI convention is usually held in August each year. Speak with your pastor if you are interested in more information about membership.
