The guest lecturers of the conference were: Alberto R. Timm, associate director of the Ellen G. White Estate; Clinton Wahlen, associate director of the Biblical Research Institute; Lisa Diller, history lecturer at Southern Adventist University, Tennessee; Martin Lohrmann, pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the United States and assistant professor of Lutheran Confessions and Heritage at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa; Michael Sokupa, associate director of the Ellen White Estate; Dennis Pettibone, professor emeritus of History at Southern Adventist University; and Nikolaus Satelmajer, a retired worker of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The daily plenary and breakout sessions took place on November 9 to 11, 2017 at the AIIAS Amphitheater and Auditorium and was led by professors and students from the AIIAS Theological Seminary.
