(Adventist-Laymen's Services and Industries)
ASI-the organization of Seventh-day Adventist lay persons involved in Professions, industry, education, and/or services - exists to provide challenge, nurture, and experience in "Sharing Christ in the Marketplace" as well as support the global mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The uniqueness of the organization is twofold:
1) Time, talents, treasures and the body temple are recognized as belonging to God. We are stewards of these posessions. Accordingly, we believe that our vocations can and should be a ministry to aid in the advancement of the great gospel commission (Luke 19:13; Testimonies for the Church, vol. 4, p. 469).
2) ASI is committed to supporting the Seventh-day Adventist Church and its various outreach programs which include health, education, evangelism, community services, family concerns and special projects.
The organization has approximately 1,000 members including men and women from nearly every walk of life. They represent all the diversity that is found within the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The ASI philosophy promotes a Christ-centered lifestyle, manifested by a commitment to be in daily partnership with God. Members seek to live out God's love in their own lives and share that love with the millions of people they encounter in their business and professional activities each year--hence the motto, Sharing Christ in the Marketplace.
The Central California Conference ASI Representative is Caron Oswald.
