The ESDA needs writers. It will include articles on every aspect of Adventist history, so consider: What can I write on? It may be a forgotten person that you think people should know more about. It may be the Adventist work in the country, state, or city in which you were born. You may want to write an article on a school or ministry, or about Adventists’ engagement with an issue that you are passionate about, such as social activism, technology, or the environment. This is a chance to write about our church in an honest, open, and thorough way. The Author Materials page contains documents that provide the expectations for each type of article.

There are thousands of articles that need to be written, and although there is no pay to write them, there are many other incentives. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in a global church project that thousands of others are joining in, the articles will be signed and so you will be the authority on the subject, this will count as a scholarly publication and so will look good on your CV, you will add to the body of knowledge about our church that is accessible on the web, and you will fulfill the inspired admonition to remember, record, and rehearse God’s leading.

To contribute to the Encyclopedia of Seventh-day Adventists, please contact us at encyclopedia@gc.adventist.org with your article idea, or contact the appropriate assistant editor.
