College and University Dialogue

Designed for Seventh-day Adventist university students and young professionals, College and University Dialogue is published by the Committee on Adventist Ministry to College and University Students (AMiCUS) in cooperation with the 13 world divisions of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and in partnership with Public Campus Ministries (PCM). Volume 32, Number 1 (2020) is now available online. In their guest editorial titled Adventists and Military Service, Mario Ceballos and Gary Councell state that in order to “make a decision that applies to life today, one must consider the issue from the entirety of Scripture and review God’s leading in history.” Additional articles include:
