"Tell the World" shares the compelling story of a small group of farmers from the northeast region of the United States who would go on to set the foundation of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Since the 19th century, the Adventist Movement has been at the forefront of matters relating to health, education, communication and Biblical interpretation.
Highlighting the major events that shaped the early church over a 60 year period, the film traces the period from William Miller's 1814 wartime experiences at the battle of Plattsburgh, through the rise of the Great Awakening and the disappointment of 1844, to the birth and formal organisation of the Seventh-day Adventist church and the consequent beginnings of its dynamic worldwide missionary movement in the 1870's. As such, it provides wonderful insight into the dynamic characters that paved the way forward including William Miller, Joshua V. Himes, Ellen Harmon, Joseph Bates, James White and J.N. Andrews.
Tell the world has been designed to have a worldwide appeal and it is envisaged that the film will be available for distribution in multiple languages, and suitable for global broadcast on Hope Channel. Thus, Tell the World is a powerful tool for all pastors, evangelists, teachers, schools, universities, laymen and youth, both for outreach and nurture.
