An Analysis of the Current State of Seventh-day Adventist Mission in Bihar with Missiological Implications

Santosh Kumar

Since 2000 the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) church has tried numerous strategies to spread the Gospel across Bihar, but membership growth has been very limited in the past 19 years. The lack of tangible results in evangelizing Bihar has led many Adventist church leaders towards disappointment and therefore it has been orphaned for the survival even after the establishment of a regional office in the year 2009. The primary focus of this study is to research the mission strategies of the SDA mission in Bihar from 2000-2018 and analyze the challenges faced.
