The current platform for Adventist Church Connect (ACC) and Adventist School Connect (ASC) will be changing. In late 2024 or early 2025, ACC/ASC will move to a new Wordpress-based platform, replacing the existing functionality and giving us a new foundation to move forward providing websites for all churches and schools across the North American Division (NAD).
Simple Updates, the company that has provided the software that currently powers ACC/ASC, is closing its doors in the spring of 2024. The NAD has reached an agreement with them to use the existing software until our new system is ready. Through the transition, all existing ACC/ASC sites will continue to receive technical support in the same way things have happened in the past. Once the new platform is ready, all existing sites will be migrated.
The NAD has begun development of a new platform based primarily on WordPress which will be ready in late 2024 or early 2025. Brent Hardinge, Assistant Vice President for Digital Media, has been tasked with coordinating the development and migration. He has years of experience in website and systems development and design. This new platform will be hosted on the NAD Cloud.
The NAD will continue to provide the same high level of service and support for ACC/ASC that you have been receiving, with regular software updates, template selections, instructional videos, technical support, as well as the addition of new features as we work with AdventSource, Adventist Information Ministry, and the software development company.
