DISCOVERING THE ESSENCE. TOGETHER.

EUROPEAN MEDIA CONFERENCE

Canet, Spain. March 23-28, 2018

EVENT

The main concept of European GAiN

The concept of GAiN (Global Adventist Internet Network) was developed by the General Conference Communication department to provide networking and training opportunities for those who serve the mission of the Church in this important area both as paid employees and as committed lay-members.

GC runs GAiN on an annual basis. However, while an excellent programme, it switches Divisions each year and the flight costs will make it too expensive for most of our communicators to attend on a regular basis. (2017 is in Brazil with proposals for Japan, India and S Africa in later years.)

The rationale behind running a European GAiN on an annual basis is:

  • Technology is continuously changing and those working in the medias encompassed by GAiN need regular updating.
  • Communication networking is important and an ideas exchange can happen best in a live environment.
  • The event can inspire lay professionals and young people to become more actively involved in the Mission of the Church as they discover how their skills sets can be used.
