Resources will include the complete Sabbath School Archives (PDF download with full quarterly & weekly titles + search, 13th Sabbath Offering Box & Lesson Notes), Treasury tools, Art Packs & Banners , Ellen White Library links.
Next on the list of things to do is converting the Sabbath School lesson archives to HTML format.
There’s information here on setting up your church website wherever you are in the world and whether you want to opt for a church based system or WordPress.
Secondly there are content related pages – things you should have available on your website and other things certainly worth considering including your basic church information (location, program times), Morning Devotionals, Sabbath School, Bible Studies, Video Library, Church Evangelism Projects and more.
FORUM & LINKS
There’s not a lot happening on the forum at the moment. It is available for anyone wanting a forum platform for discussion of church website & resource related material.
Links currently include some official links, Coding, Reference & Software that I personally use. There will be a lot more church links coming.
OTHER SITE NOTES…
Around the site you will see areas with a + sign. If you click on them more information will open up. It’s just a simple way of hiding information until you need to see it & reducing the length of web pages.
Where there is coding available to copy & use on your own site, the current plugin I use doesn’t wrap the code to the next line. If you copy from the line before the coding starts to the line after you’ll get it all.
More information will show up.
It’s really handy when there’s a lot… it keeps website pages short & clear.
If there’s something that interests you, you can open it up & read.
If not, it’s out of sight. Neat!
This is an example of some code available on the site… it’s pretty basic which will suit both me & my intended audience.

I’m Robbie from Australia, 1st gen Adventist with a passion for Adventist Web Ministry & Resources.
I live in north-west New South Wales working full time in an accounting office (clerical/computing) and have been blessed with 3 beautiful children. I have been a church member for the past 23 years coming in through the ministry of the Breath of Life (CD Brooks/Reginald Robinson) & am looking forward to the soon return of Jesus!
When I’m not working, chasing the aforementioned children, sleeping or eating, I enjoy graphic design & typography, using my gym for something other than hanging the ironing on & working on this ministry… dreaming about doing it full time.
SUPPORTING ADVENTIST RESOURCES
If you come back regularly to check on updates you might realize things don’t happen every day.
As this is a personal endevour and given I work full time, have family & other church responsibilities, the site will continually be in development & updates will happen as regularly as humanly possible. Progress updates will appear log down below & you can follow the ministry on Facebook as well.
You can support Adventist Resources regularly via my shiny new Patreon page or make a single one-off donation via Paypal. Any support is greatly appreciated + prayers that this might become a full time ministry.
