Office of Volunteer Ministries

North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists


Welcome to HE SAID GO - the official website of the Office of Volunteer Ministries of the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Inspired by Jesus' Gospel commission found in Matthew 28:19, our vision is to promote service from and within our division and throughout the world. Thousands of short-term and long-term volunteers impact the world through the support of the Office of Volunteer Ministries.

Under the denomination's Office of the Secretariat, we are responsible for networking with the leadership of volunteer ministries, linking churches, schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, and supportive organizations toward common goals in outreach.  As you visit our website, I encourage you to join the movement and inspire others  to do likewise.

our mission

To connect Seventh-day Adventist volunteers from the North American Division to mission service opportunities within North America and around the world.

"All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." - Matthew 28:19-20
