Three Days of Amazing Engagement

The forum has grown from a training platform for Seminary students’ research presentation into a global community that tackles current issues in the areas of applied theology, biblical studies, and theological-historical studies. In recent years, the forum has adopted official statements that have shaped the direction of the Seventh-day Adventist church both in research and in practice. Top theologians have taken center stage in lively Biblical-based discussions.


Participants have enjoyed the fellowship and networking experience through this forum. Despite the circumstances, there is no holding back from yet another exciting forum this year on a crucial theme featuring an amazing lineup of speakers.

Registration is free! Complete the minimum online hours to receive your online certificate. The event is limited to the first 500 participants. Hurry and register now!
