Summer Outreach School


Summer Outreach School

The purpose of this program is to help ground more young people in the Adventist message and equip them to be soul winners in their local churches and communities…

Because Hartland College’s mission is to train 21st century missionary entrepreneurs, we wanted to instill within students a love for sharing their faith with others right at the beginning of their college experience in a structured and concise way. We also desire our students to learn soul-winning techniques from a wide range of Adventist evangelism leaders from around the world.

Therefore, our Summer Outreach Training School is part of our core curriculum and is required of all incoming students during the summer of their first year. However, it is also offered as a stand-alone certificate program for those who desire to learn the latest practical techniques for sharing the Adventist message with the world. Academic credit is offered for many of the classes via the college’s Theology Department. Non-student guests can also choose to take individual classes by special arrangement.
