Introducing Our New Director
In November of 2016, the NAD Evangelism Institute welcomed a new director, Dr. Eduard Schmidt. Dr. Schmidt first joined the NAD Evangelism Institute team in 1993 with a passion for personal evangelism and strategic planning for church growth. Dr. Schmidt is a favorite of students and helps them believe they can equip their members for successful evangelistic ministry. He provides creative ideas and resources to support them. Dr. Schmidt has led out in the visitation of the NAD Evangelism Institute field schools for many years and particularly enjoys visiting in the homes of interest with students.
Looking to the future, Dr. Schmidt highlights the importance of the NAD Evangelism Institute sharing resources and expertise to reach our communities, create active members, provide field experiences to promote church planting, and equip effective mentor leaders. This requires a strong collaboration between the NAD Evangelism Institute, the North American Division and the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary. He is particularly excited to encourage the NAD Evangelism Institute team members to engage in their areas of evangelistic passion.
Immediate goals include achieving 100% student satisfaction. Dr. Schmidt wants to see every student treated like a “conference president”. The quality of service provided by the NAD Evangelism Institute should be of the highest standard. This will have an impact on all relationships and will help the NAD Evangelism Institute live out their core values of: God-dependence, evangelism, equipping, and innovation.
Dr. Schmidt would be happy to connect with you and share ways that the NAD Evangelism Institute can serve you and your evangelistic ministry.
