Hartland was established in 1983 as a comprehensive training center for young people with a vision for Christian missionary training. Through a unique combination of education and health ministry, the institute’s aim was to provide practical training along with a solid biblical foundation in a positive country environment conducive to personal spiritual growth.
Today Hartland continues to train young people from all over the world to spread the Three Angels’ Messages, with a renewed emphasis on supporting the worldwide mission and ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Our program has expanded to include a variety of majors, specializations, and practical courses.
Hartland’s unique program combines solid principles, high standards, deep biblical knowledge, practical hands-on experience, effective on-campus and community outreach, agricultural training, and academic study.

Mission Trips Our students and staff travel on mission trips during the summer and winter breaks. Most of these mission trips target the countries of our international students, addressing the needs in their local fields. These trips provide valuable service, soul-winning experiences, practical training, and connect the student with his future mission field.
Three Angels’ Chorale
We believe that our music should be a means of proclaiming the Everlasting Gospel; and that Advent hymns, sacred classics, as well as contemporary sacred songs effectively arranged with proper balance between melody, harmony, and rhythm, can be a source of inspiration and musical fulfillment to both the listener and the performer. The chorale has performed on five continents, in eleven languages, and in a variety of settings: airports, restaurants, hospitals, orphanages, schools, churches, prisons, on radio and television, in shopping malls, banks, in public evangelism, retirement centers, nursing homes, in houses of culture, universities, offices, and on the street.

The mission of Hartland Lifestyle Education Center is to bring men to complete restoration and to point them to Jesus Christ, who is able to give them healing, peace, and perfection of character.
