Review and Herald Recruits Representatives for Each Church
Adventist Book Centers and the Review and Herald Publishing Association plan to improve their service to churches by adding a thousand or more local representatives. The positions do not come with a paycheck, but they do have perks for those who love books and reading.
“The idea is to have an ABC representative in each church congregation,” says Oscar Hernandez, who directs the Church Promoter Program. “This will give church members a local point of contact with the Adventist Book Center which may be more than one hundred miles away.
Launched by the Review and Herald Publishing Association earlier this year, the Church Promoter Program promises new recruits a steady supply of free books. Their part of the bargain is to inform local church members about new products and help the local ABC take orders.
Church promoters receive a monthly package from the Review and Herald that contains instructional information and several promotional pieces such as posters, bulletin inserts, church announcements, scripts, and summaries of the books being promoted. Also, promoters receive free copies of the books featured that month.
“We believe that most church members are missing out because they simply aren’t aware of the excellent products that are available,” says Hernandez. “The Church Promoter Program is changing that.”
Currently about 500 promoters have passed the screening process and are active in local churches.
