     "And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads."  -Revelation 7:2-3

How Adventism Went Global - David Trim

How Adventism Went Global

Learn from the past, be inspired for the future!

by David Trim

Does history matter for a movement focused on the Second Coming and the end of time? Trim will explore Adventist history, with a particular focus on worldwide mission, and show that, even for an apocalyptic movement such as ours, it can be the past that leads to the future. You will hear why our history matters, the stories that can inspire, the mistakes that we need to identify and learn from, and the heritage that continues to shape our identity in the 21st century.

David Trim is director of the office of archives, statistics, and research at the General Conference. Born in Bombay, India, to missionary parents, Trim was raised in Sydney, Australia, and educated in England. His B.A. in history is from Newbold College, and his Ph.D. in history and war studies is from King’s College, University of London. He served 10 years on the faculty at Newbold College, teaching history and religion, and two years at Pacific Union College, where he held the Walter C. Utt Chair of History. Trim is the first Seventh-day Adventist to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. He has held visiting fellowships at universities in three countries, including the University of California at Berkeley, and he is an adjunct professor at the SDA Theological Seminary. Trim is the editor or coauthor of 10 books, as well as many articles and book chapters. He presents “This Week in Adventist History” on the Hope Channel each Friday night. Trim is married to Wendy, a native of California, and they have one daughter, Evie.
