North New Zealand Conference Says that the General Conference has taken action that the SDA Denomination Will No Longer Accept Donations Received For 3ABN
Ervin Taylor, August 3, 2007

Adventist Today has received a copy of the North New Zealand Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, The Bulletin, dated 4 August 2007.

Under a heading of "Important Notice" and "3ABN," there is this statement:

"[F]ollowing advice received from the South Pacific Division and the General Conference we wish to share the following information with members regarding 3ABN.

3ABN is a privately owned and operated company.

3ABN is not denominationally owned, controlled or operated.

3ABN is not registered by the denomination as a supporting ministry.

Serious legal allegations have been made involving the 3ABN organization which have yet to be resolved.

The General Conference and the South Pacific Division has therefore taken action that the denomination will no longer process and/or accept donations received for 3ABN. Therefore any funds received at the local church after 31st August 2007 . . . must be returned to the donor, and any funds received at the conference office after 20th September will be returned to the source from which they were received."

In an effort to clarify the statement that "3ABN is not registered by the denomination as a supporting ministry," Adventist Today contacted Rajmund Dabrowski, General Conference Communication Director by email. Mr. Dabrowski quickly replied to the Adventist Today inquiry. He stated: "I am not aware of any list of supporting ministries that are registered with the General Conference or North-American Division. The closest to such a potential listing is the ASI membership roster which by its nature requires that to join indicates an organization to be supportive of the church. We understand that 3ABN is a current member of ASI. As stated previously, there has been no change or review of the status of 3ABN as a supporting ministry by the Seventh-day Adventist Church."
