In 1983, Hartland College opened with the goal of training young men and women to take the everlasting gospel to the world in their generation through evangelistic, educational, health, and media ministries. Today there are Hartland graduates proclaiming the Three Angels’ Messages on every inhabited continent.
Yet more youth worldwide, including many from third-world countries, are eager to be trained for God’s service, but cannot afford to attend Hartland. Most countries are not affluent and it is impossible for young people to come here without financial assistance. When Hartland began, the founders knew this would be the situation, so they established the “Missionary Training Fund” (MTF).

David Fam, 1995, is the founder and president of Aenon Health Care in his homeland, Malaysia. “Aenon operates a lifestyle center that can accommodate 30 health guests at a time…. Aenon also runs a Chinese media production center, and a training center where we teach Bible, health, and media.”
Rodney Millin relates, “I came to Hartland with plans for a small church ministry, but when I graduated in 1997, I returned to Zimbabwe with a burning desire to do global evangelism.” Rodney serves as Conference Evangelist and Ministerial Director, and pastors a church for the Zimbabwe Conference.
Jonathan Zita, 2001, is in charge of the publishing work in Eastern Canada. “…Literature evangelists are trained to provide lifestyle counseling and to sell books that help people improve their health. Colporteuring in this way…opens the door to place message books in the home.”
Nastasya Bravarets, 2011, is a missionary in Germany doing Bible work and working in one of the Adventist Centers of Influence. "We are sharing the gospel message with people through friendships, health evangelism, and the Bible." Previously, she worked in the Department of Health and Temperance for the East-Russian Union Mission of Seventh-day Adventists.
To support 15 students, we need $135,000 per year, or $11,250 per month. We invite you to ask the Lord, “What would You have me give to Hartland’s Missionary Training Fund?” Whatever you can donate, small or great, your investment will produce an eternal harvest. Christ has commissioned us to preach the gospel “to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.” Revelation 14:6. Only after this closing work has been done will Jesus come. If the Holy Spirit moves you to support our Missionary Training Fund, mark your donation “MTF.”
“With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world! How soon might the end come—the end of suffering and sorrow and sin!” Education, p. 271.
