About GAiN

What is GAiN?

GAiN is a community of Adventist communicators, technologists, and media professionals from around the world. Through the GAiN network, we seek to foster the use of communication, technology, media, and the internet to help the Adventist Church carry out its mission to share the everlasting gospel with “every nation, tribe, tongue, and people.”

GAiN Conference

Since its beginning in 2004, the annual GAiN Conference has brought people from around the globe together to educate, train, and collaborate with one another in finding new and effective ways to reach our communities.

In 2022 the General Conference voted to limit global events. Therefore, GAiN Continental was conceived, allowing local communication leaders to participate in the GAiN experience. The GAiN Continental events will happen in Africa, Americas, Asia, and Europe.
