Abstract

Task of the Project

The task of this project was to prepare a report on the present condition of the Euro-American Seventh-day Adventist church focusing on six such congregations in the Greater New York Conference. By studying their historical, cultural, and environmental background, the writer sought to determine whether the existence of such congregations, as separate units within the Seventh-day Adventist organization, was justified. And, on the basis of that investigation, to submit his recommendation in favor of their separate ethnic outreach among the groups they represent, or to recommend that they be incorporated with the English-speaking congregations of the above-mentioned conference.

Description of the Project

The writer saw this project as an investigation of the consciousness of the Euro-American church as a part of the whole denominational body. He endeavored to find out how that organizational unit functions within the body of Christ and how it contributes to its wholeness. This investigation was carried out mostly in the city of New York since all six Euro-American churches of the Greater New York Conference are located there.
