Dear nad educators,

In June 2019 there will be a New Testament Alive Tour for NAD Educators.  The tour includes Revelation’s 7 Churches (Turkey), Patmos, and Greece (June 6-16, 2019)—with an optional Rome extension (June 16-19, 2019). The tour leaders will be Dr. Greg King and Dr. Martin Klingbeil, professors in the School of Religion at Southern Adventist University. Local guides will also accompany the group in Turkey, Patmos, Greece, and Rome and school visits will be set-up with time for discussion regarding implications for our NAD Education System.

This special tour brings alive the experiences of the Early Christian Church: from the Seven Churches of Revelation (Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea), to Christ’s giving of Revelation at Patmos, to Paul’s defense of the gospel in Athens and Corinth. We will follow in the footsteps of the earliest Christians, worshipping the same risen Lord together—including the first Sabbath in Ephesus and the second Sabbath in Corinth. Our group will also enjoy times of fellowship and fun together: relaxing in the Hierapolis hot springs (near Laodicea) and sailing on an all-night ferry from Patmos to Athens in bunk-style sleeper cabins.

Pricing is $2297 for the main tour, and an additional $550 for the Rome extension.   For those interested, there are two other study tours happening before and after the New Testament tour.  “Israel in Jesus’ Steps” (May 30-June 6) and “Ellen White in Europe” June 19-30. You can view info at Don’t delay as space is limited and filling quickly!

Feel free to share word of these study tours with the Adventist educators in your circles.  To reserve space, email your name(s) to

Online store

Shop and pay for your online classroom resources in the online store beginning June 1. Actual subscription period runs October 1 – September 30. Orders across the division are consolidated to one NAD order so all of our schools benefit from the larger order numbers.

The rationale for September 16 deadline: Our schools across NAD start at different times. Some start as early as the beginning of August and others as late as the day after Labor Day. In order to accommodate as close to “real” enrollment numbers as possible – the September 16 date is a “happy” medium. Remember! No matter when you pay – the subscription period stays the same. Check out what is available - both returning products and new ones!
