Communication Ministries

"Building bridges of hope" is the mission statement of the Seventh-day Adventist Church's Communication Department. We work toward this goal by reaching out to diverse church audiences -- both internally and externally -- through many avenues of communication. Creating informative and intuitive web sites, updating social media sites, and writing news stories and press releases are some of the ways we share our message. Through our work, we foster a clearer image of the church, its mission, activities and witness, so that many will become followers of Christ and members of His church.

The Bellville Seventh-day Adventist Church Communication Ministry seeks to present the Gospel and services of the Bellville SDA Church to the community in such a way so as to make people eager to participate and to become believers and disciples, or for those already participating, to transform them to do greater works.

We believe that ‘communication’ is central to every aspect of our local church structure today, technically making every leader in the church a communicator, however our role in ministry is to ensure that members are kept informed and the church is properly represented to the public.The ministry will also assist the Bellville SDA leadership and ministries by developing strategies for promotion of the value added to the community, and our society by our church ministries, services, activities, programs and events. It is therefore critical that we communicate with one another regularly to allow us to be effective in our role.

The following areas will encompass our ministry to help us encouraging, promoting, formulating, inspiring and equipping Bellville SDA Church to further advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the community—to the glory of God!
