Andrews, S.N. Haskell and J.N. Loughborough all lived in Lancaster and have left their mark in making this community what it is today. Enveloped in the beauty of a quaint New England town called Lancaster, students will find many places on campus to walk, study, and commune with God in His creation. Grocery stores, restaurants and other shops are a short distance away, but far enough so as not to disrupt the tranquility of campus. NETS’ location is tailor-made for both reflecting on the past . . . and preparing for your future!

The NETS Evangelism Center is located on the picturesque campus of Atlantic Union College (AUC), about an hour west of Boston, Massachusetts. Widely regarded as “the cornerstone of Adventist education,” AUC is rich with history and a long list of graduates who have helped shape the face of the Seventh-day Adventist Church today. In the heart of the campus is Founders Hall, the oldest Seventh-day Adventist educational building that remains in its original location. Inside Founders Hall you will find the William Miller Chapel as well as pulpits from which both he and Ellen White preached. James White’s writing chair and a number of other items of historic significance are also located here. Just across the street from campus is the Village Church, site of the 1899 General Conference session and the scene of one of Ellen White’s visions recorded in Testimonies to the Church, vol.5, page 114.

I praise God for NETS for it has changed my life forever. My experience there has not only impacted me in a positive way, but people close and dear to me as well. Going to NETS was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Are you looking for a short-term-yet-exceptionally-thorough training that will better prepare you to share your faith? Then COME TO NETS! God used NETS to draw me closer to Him and closer to the hearts of those in the community as I seek to point them to the answer to life’s biggest questions. I greatly appreciated the practicality of the program: we didn’t just learn theory, but immediately put into action out in the field the things we were learning! I was privileged to be a part of a great group of students who challenged me to be all I could be for God. Top-quality instructors from around the nation shared with us a wealth of experience from their specific fields of evangelism. Together we chose to strive for a deeper understanding of God’s ways of working and of how we can align ourselves with what methods He is already using to reach hearts for His kingdom.

Am I using this storehouse of knowledge and experience gained? Absolutely! Not just in Bible working, but in all areas of life. And so, my question to the reader is this: God is using NETS, will you allow Him to use YOU?

Hello to all the dear friends and family of NETS!

I first want to thank God for the privilege and opportunity to have attended this wonderful evangelism training school! Attending NETS boosted my spiritual level as well as my practical level of ministry! It gave me the tools I needed to share my faith with those I come in contact with in everyday life. The teachers were excellent and gave practical tips. It really meant a lot to me that the teachers spent personal time investing in us as students to give us the tips that we need to move forward with our ministry. I would recommend NETS to anyone that has even the least desire to share his faith with those he/she comes in contact with in everyday life. If I had the opportunity to re-do anything, I would have gone to NETS sooner! If you are considering NETS, I would not hesitate in the slightest to do whatever it takes to move forward. My prayer is that each person that claims the name of Jesus, can experience what Righteousness by Faith really means, and that is personal evangelism redefined!

I would like to say a few words about NETS, although I don’t think enough could ever be said. I am an elder at my church and wanted to take my personal witness for Jesus to a higher level. My wife felt the same. When we found out about the program at NETS, through a previous student, we prayed and felt God’s leading to come to the program. I’m confident that if you research the curriculum, the staff and all of the extras that come with your commitment, you will have an experience like my wife and I did, not only rewarding in seeing many people come into God’s glorious Kingdom, but also a deeper understanding and richness in your personal walk with our Lord. I only wish that this would have been offered when I came in the church so many years ago.

I went to NETS to gain more knowledge about the Bible. I left with so much more. Friendships made in the fellowship of service are lasting friendships with special bonds.
The whole experience was transformational. My relationship with God grew and what I learned about health was astounding-inspiring me to change my lifestyle for the better.
Seeing others come to the knowledge of the truth as it is in Jesus is something that will change your life.

NETS is a great program for an Adventist, or anyone, who desires a greater knowledge of the Bible and wishes to see how it directly relates to today’s world while keeping the focus on Jesus. The staff is excellent, caring, and helpful when it comes to showing the students how to reach out and share God’s Word with those who hunger for it. My time at NETS was very eye-opening and I learned things from a new perspective over the four months I was there. It was by far the most in depth and honest Bible learning experience I have ever been a part of.

NETS – so much incorporated into such a small acronym! I gleaned many benefits from my experience there at NETS! The diverse classes and variety of teachers helped lead me to study my Bible and search for a deeper relationship with Jesus. Practical Christianity was the main thing I appreciated. We were blessed with the opportunity to put into practice what we were learning both in public and personal evangelism. The training was and has been very beneficial for me as God has led me to continue Bible working in diverse places. I left equipped to utilize tools in sharing my faith with others. I miss my NETS family and I am grateful for the training that was given. The teachers did their best to work with us and alongside us, while training us. I left not only with more tools in my belt, but also with a new family in Christ. I won’t trade the time and experience there that God had given me for another. It is an intense program, and if you believe God is leading you there, I would counsel you to follow His leading. 🙂

Going to NETS was one of the biggest decisions I have made in my life so far. I was fresh out of high school and looking for direction from God on what to do next. We had a NETS express at my church and my friend and I started going door to door. I was doing what I had been begging God to do for months. That was sharing my faith to those in need. I praise the Lord for that. How I was able to attend the full 4-month program is a miracle in itself.

I went in with a desire to further learn how share my faith and the ways God was working in my life. Not only did I leave fully equipped (plus extra because God always makes provisions for the future), God also allowed our team to develop life-long relationships.

If you have an inkling that this is where God is leading you, continue to pray unceasingly and take a step forward. God will make a way.
“Trust and Obey, cause there’s no other way. To be HAPPY in Jesus, but to trust and obey.” – Philippians 1:6

Hello, my name is Courtnie Shields and I am a former student at the nets evangelism training school. At Nets we learned a little about gardening, Hydrotherapy, and all types of ways to effectively evangelize. Besides the very informative classes and opportunities to get the community engage in Health events, for example our Health Expo and healthy cooking classes, the best part for me was being able to make personal heaven bound relationships with people in the community. Seeing the transformation in people you have been working with, hearing how excited they are to tell you how much God had blessed them that week was the great reward to receive. I praise the Lord for the experience I had at NETS. If you are looking to grow spiritually and have a character building experience, NETS is a great program for you. Just go as the Lord leads you.

NETS was an awesome experience! I would do it again in a heartbeat! No regrets! If your desire is to reach people with God’s love and truth NETS is a great place to start. Experienced instructors, godly atmosphere, detailed training in most facets of evangelism, and most importantly, much practical experience in the field and in the reaping meetings. For me the practical instruction and field experience was a invaluable blessing that will help me in all of my evangelistic efforts until Christ comes. Every member of the church should have this training. Anyone who can clear their schedule for 4 short months should at least consider taking this opportunity to be equipped for service. In my opinion NETS is the best 4-month evangelism training program in the US. When you experience the joy of having a part in the saving of souls for God’s kingdom your life will never be the same! Your life will be changed forever!

Maybe you are reading this and wondering if this is something you should do. Just consider the following statement from Christ’s Object Lessons, page 333:
“The Lord desires us to obtain all the education possible, with the object in view of imparting our knowledge to others. None can know where or how they may be called to labor or to speak for God. Our heavenly Father alone sees what He can make of men. There are before us possibilities which our feeble faith does not discern. Our minds should be so trained that if necessary we can present the truths of His word before the highest earthly authorities in such a way as to glorify His name. We should not let slip even one opportunity of qualifying ourselves intellectually to work for God.”

I attended NETS in the Fall of 2015. NETS was an amazing experience. While there I learned more about the Bible and God. They taught me personal and public evangelism including how to give Bible studies and evangelistic meetings.

We, the students, were also given the chance to put these things into practice. We gave Bible studies to people in the community and held an evangelistic series with the local church. It is an amazing experience to lead someone closer to God and is truly a life changing experience.

Not only did I grew spiritually but I also grew socially and mentally. I made friends with my fellow classmates as well as people from the church and from the community.
Through this knowledge I was able to grow closer to God and become a better witness for Him. If you want your relationship with God to become stronger and you want to be better equipped to spread the word of God, I would most definitely recommend NETS.

NETS was such an awesome and most blessed experience in my personal walk with Christ. Three weeks before the program started, never before had i felt like my faith was being so tested and/or challenged. I felt like my spirituality with God was on the line, that I was at a crossroads in my life and that i could make either one of two decisions; stay home and be comfortable or step out in faith and trust that God would lead in this venture. I can say positively today without any unequivocal doubt that God was indeed leading and that in attending the NETS program, I’ve come to know the bible more for myself, grown more in spiritual understanding and have learned how to be an effectual soul-winner for Christ. If you are on the fence in your spiritual walk, I encourage you to get working in his field, to be a sharer of His word and a fisher of men.

NETS was life-changing for me. As a person who grew up in the church, preached many sermons, and gave countless Bible studies, I was blessed tremendously by my experience. Not only did I learn very valuable information and gain hands-on experience but more importantly I grew in my relationship with God. Through NETS, my picture of God has become clearer and clearer. During my time there, He became more loving, more gracious, more faithful to me. I understood Jesus’ sacrifice in a whole new way. I understood in a better light what it means to be a child of God and my role here on this earth. I firmly believe that every Christian should go to NETS. You will not regret it!

Going to NETS expanded my knowledge of spiritual things, and strengthened my personal relationship with Jesus. All of the instructors were knowledgeable and encouraging, and personally challenged me to think in ways I had not in the past. Going to NETS has properly equipped me to share my faith, maintain a relationship with God, and has given me many ministry opportunities.

It was truly a blessing sitting in the classes on Righteousness by Faith and on the Covenants. Learning about the Cycle of Evangelism and how to answer various Bible objections was a tremendous blessing!

NETS was just what the doctor ordered! Life was in a huge transition for me and this program fit the bill to the ‘T’. Teachers who understand the mission and the awesome mission field set before us!

The visiting teachers who came provided mind blowing ideas and methods on how to reach not only the neighbor next door but the neighbor from around the globe. Would highly recommend this to anyone!


Links to http://netsatlanticunion.org/campuscmnt/chris-armantrout/

NETS was a life changing experience for me! The lessons learned have really opened my eyes to the mission we have as followers of Jesus. Our Lord tells us in Matthew 28 to go! And He promises us that He will be with us till the end of the world.

NETS will equip you to go as the Master commands us! To learn how to share our faith and to reach out to people is priceless! There is nothing more important than that!

We were taught at NETS that everyone is winnable for Christ! Everyone we see and come across is a precious soul in the sight of our Lord!
I highly recommend NETS to everyone! Maybe God is leading you into Bible work. Or maybe He is leading you to share God’s Holy Word from the pulpit. Where ever God is leading you He will prepare you for it at NETS.

Nothing compares to being a part of the work for Jesus! Thank you NETS for changing my life! I continue to pray daily for this school!

This past fall, I spent four amazing months at NETS. I cannot put into words just how awesome it was to see God working in the lives of Bible study contacts, my classmates, even my own life. It still blows my mind that God chose to use us humans, faulty and sinful, as we are to bring others to Him. He could have chosen mighty angels, but He chose us. Today, I draw on the training I received at NETS, from classes like Bible Doctrines and Health Evangelism to preparing, knocking on doors for, and finally giving Bible studies, in my work as a literature evangelist, one soon as a part-time Bible worker. I had never had teachers who were so Christ-like and available to answer my questions. If you want to work for God or sense a need to draw closer to Him, check out NETS! You won’t regret it!

My experiences at NETS have changed my life completely. The classes were very clear and edifying; the instructors were Christ centered and they all had one goal, bringing people to Jesus before the door of probation is closed. It is a very exciting program and there isn’t ever a dull moment. I never understood the need of workers or the greatness of the labor. If anyone wants to work along angels finishing the work God has entrusted us to do I would suggest becoming a Bible Worker. It’s a life changing work, for you and for those who come to Christ. Go to NETS!

I grew up being an Adventist. Even though I have never left the church I was looking for something more – for closer relationship with God, deeper understanding of the Bible, and being able to share my faith with others. NETS exceeded my expectations. At NETS I was equipped beyond what I was looking for. They even taught me on how to teach others. Only at NETS I fully understood the meaning of the great commission and discipleship. There my spiritual life has enhanced drastically. Coming to NETS was not an easy decision, but it was the best decision I have made thus far.

I am now a Bible worker because of NETS. This program is amazing. It is extremely practical. The teachers and guest speakers were the best in their craft. Everything is practical, simple, and proved to work when we applied it was applied to outreach and bridge events while training. I grew spiritually so I could help others and really understood what our mission is which is to bring lost sheep back top the flock.

I LOVED NETS. It was practical, informative, purposeful, prayerful, familal, and Christ centered. This is the place for anyone you who is interested in fortifying their faith and sharing that faith with others. I am proud to call it my Alma Mater.

Before NETS I didn’t know if I was coming or going. NETS has taught me so much and it has opened many doors for me. Today because of NETS I have the privilege of doing Bible work. NETS has drawn me closer to the Lord and has giving me a purpose in life which is to fulfill the gospel commission. Praise God for NETS!

NETS! Great Course. Informative, practical and relevant. The in-house and guest lecturers, provided a wonderful balance of experience, knowledge and spiritual insights. The Personal Evangelism class was invaluable, we were not only given the theory, but we had the wonderful experience of knocking on doors, giving bible studies in the homes of those visited, and witnessing some of these individuals giving their lives to Christ. Oh what a joy! After completing the 4 months training with NETS my life was totally transformed, and I am experiencing a deeper walk with Christ through personal time in devotion. Do you want to experience a deeper walk with Christ? Do you want to know how to share Christ with someone? Do you want to know and understand the Bible better? I would recommend NETS as the place to be.

This was an excellent program, with fantastic leadership. I am still building from the foundation that I started here, I recommend everyone go through this who is looking to really own your religious walk.

One of my most favorite things as far as NETS is concerned is the learning style. I really like the fact that not only do I get classroom training but field training, as well. I like the fact that NETS spends the time to prepare a program that allows us to get a taste of evangelism [for] ourselves rather than just hear about how it has worked for others. Besides that, if I had to pick one thing out of the many things we did for NETS it would probably have to be the door knocking.

Last fall I had the privilege of attending the NETS program. It was an amazing experience! I knew I needed knowledge and experience in evangelism, but I wasn’t sure where to turn at first. God pointed me right where he wanted me. At NETS, I learned so much about what evangelism is and truly should be. The instructors are awesome and well qualified to do what they do. My one initial conversation with them assured me that their hearts were in the right place. Now I know so much more about how I can work for The Lord, and it has set me on fire (hypothetically). If you want to find out how you can serve God better, this is the place for you!

The classes offered are interesting and very practical. But the best part is the supportive environment to spend with God every moment of every day.

What I like most about NETS is the personal experience you get, both spiritual and social. It’s a life-changing experience.

We’ve heard it said before, “God doesn’t call the equipped. He equips the called.”; “Dare to be a Daniel. Dare to stand alone.” and also “God meets us where we are, but doesn’t leave us there.” These are all encompassing of what the NETS program is to me. The reason I had for initially participating in NETS, quickly changed as the Lord catapulted me into this great adventure.

The Lord used NETS not only to train and equip academically in the areas of personal/public evangelism, and health ministries; but even more importantly to reach deep inside my heart to give me His heavenly perspective for winning souls through His method of mingling with people, ministering to their needs, desiring their good, winning their confidence and then bidding them “Follow Him”. Too often we have it backwards, and also think it is our job to “clean” the people. Not so. This is the work of the Holy Spirit. We are called to “love” them as Christ loves.

Through NETS the Lord also brought out a love for specific ministry and molded a “talent” in me that I had honestly not realized. The ministry of Bible work, door-to-door and one-on-one study was intimidating to me. However as the Lord’s ways are often not our ways, He prepared me at NETS for my current employment as a district Bible worker. Glory to God for this unexpected opportunity that I believe He began giving me the ability to accomplish each day through His grace, instruction and guiding hand at NETS. I would encourage anyone that is sensing the Lord’s call for further training in His work of reaching the lost, to say yes to NETS. Time is short! The harvest is great! Jesus is coming VERY soon and we need to be about His business!

I Praise God for leading me to NETS!

God Truly has a Special Purpose and Plan for each one of us. Through the NETS Training Program and the Experience of Bible Work, God has revealed His Purpose and Plan for me which has fulfilled the desires of my heart. The NETS Training prepared me for this Full Time Ministry that God had planned. God has opened the way for me to continue in Bible Work along with sharing the Health message through a Health Food Ministry called “Heidi’s Health Kitchen”.
