Adventist Church and School Connect began in late 2005 when the North American Division decided to offer every church and school a website. The goal was to encourage churches and schools in the United States, Canada, and Bermuda to use the Internet to reach their communities. The NAD asked AdventSource to add website development and support to the resources and services they provided to churches. AdventSource staff provide all design, training, and website support, and AdventSource contracts with SimpleUpdates for use of their content management system, web servers, and backup services. Today ACC and ASC continue to grow, with new software updates, template selections, and features constantly being added.
The ACC and ASC support team is located at AdventSource in Lincoln, Nebraska. Come visit us if you are ever in the neighborhood!
Many people across North America help support Adventist Church and School Connect. The user support and design team in Lincoln, Nebraska is supported by the Simple Updates staff in Berrien Springs, Michigan and the North American Division information and technology department in Silver Spring, Maryland.
