1 August 2018 | The annual convention for ASI (Adventist-laymen’s Services & Industries) kicks off today, Wednesday August 1, and will run until Saturday, August 4 in Orlando, Florida.
The convention this year is themed Business Unusual and will feature presentations by well-known Adventist speakers as well as break-out sessions and exhibits from ASI member organizations. It will be held at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in the Orlando area.
The convention is billed as a place for Adventist laypeople to encourage each other and share ideas as they run organizations that are supportive of the Adventist Church. The convention also aims to inspire and equip those that attend to do denominational outreach in their communities.
Alongside the main ASI Convention, an ASI Young Professional Conference will be running on Thursday and Friday, August 2-3. The event aims to inspire Adventist students, young professionals and entrepreneurs who are interested in tools for ministry in their spheres of influence. The event features a list of speakers and mentors and provides networking opportunities for attendees.
