1. Wu, James. Collaborative Leadership Roles in the Implementation of Adventist Health Lifestyle: A Case Study of the Chinese Union Mission.

Degree: PhD, Leadership PhD, 2014, Andrews University

Problem Little is known about the roles of the institutional leader’s role in the collaborative implementation of the Adventist health lifestyle programs of the Chinese Union Mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Such an understanding would provide clues regarding how collaborative leadership and the implementation of Adventist lifestyle programs meet the challenge of non-communicable diseases. According to the World Health Organization report, about 36 million people died in 2008 of non-communicable diseases, and the trend continues upward. Evidence-based research, such as the China Study and the Adventist Health Studies, provides a strong support for the ability of Adventist health lifestyle programs to combat non-communicable diseases and ultimately to improve health. Method This qualitative case study describes the background, process, and outcomes of collaborative leadership with institutional leaders playing important roles in the implementation of Adventist health lifestyle programs. A purposive sample of 12 leaders from institutions representing union hospitals, colleges, local conferences, a publishing house, and local churches was selected. I conducted personal interviews, convened focus groups, and made observations of all the leaders as they worked. Major themes were categorized and analyzed to create a set of findings that represented the common experience and perspectives of the leaders. Results The research resulted in two major findings: the first pertains to the four roles of the institutional leaders—finder, supporter, builder, and owner—in the collaborative implementation of Adventist health lifestyle programs. These four leadership roles are exercised in two groups of collaborative activities. The first group is foundational for collaboration in finding resources, training health workers, and the operation of lifestyle health centers; while the second group comprises the service-based healthful lifestyle programs. The second finding is a complex integrated relationship of factors, metaphorically described as a four-strand woven cord, represented by (a) the four leadership roles, (b) the implementation of Adventist lifestyle programs, (c) the organizational structure of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and (d) the collaborative leadership skills of the leaders. The primary challenge for the leaders’ roles is to find ample resources for collaboration. A significant tension among the leaders in the context of the union organizational structure is the question who should initiate the common agenda for collaboration and the mechanism of the sharing of resources. Conclusions This case study resulted in 10 recommendations for the global Adventist church and her 120 unions. The experience of the Chinese Union Mission could be a model for collaborative leadership in the implementation of Adventist health lifestyle programs to combat non-communicable diseases in order to improve global health. The research also discovered… Advisors/Committee Members: Erich W. Baumgartner, Shirley A. Freed, Duane Covrig.

2. Meira Junior, Isaac Malheiros. Dicta Probantia: análise da hermenêutica do estilo de vida do jovem adventista.

Degree: 2015, Escola Superior de Teologica

This research aims to identify and analyze the use of the biblical interpretation method named "proof-text method" among Seventh-day Adventists (1986-2013) in the literature about the lifestyle of young Adventist, and its influence on the hermeneutics of Adventist youth. The first chapter is a historical description of the "proof-text method", its origins and presence in Christianity in general and in particular in Adventism. It also makes a distinction between this method and other hermeneutical resources used in Adventist theology, and a brief review of the method in the light of adventist official hermeneutical principles. The second chapter assesses the presence of the "proof-text method" in guidance materials on the lifestyle of young Adventist, produced and published by the Adventist Church Seventh Day in the 1986-2013 period. Finally, the third chapter analyzes the influence of the use of the "proof-text method" in spirituality and hermeneutical training of young Adventists, using the theory of "Stages of Faith" proposed by James Fowler.

Esta pesquisa busca identificar e analisar o uso do método texto-prova de interpretação bíblica entre os adventistas do sétimo dia (1986-2013) a partir dos materiais de orientação sobre o estilo de vida do jovem adventista, e sua influência sobre a hermenêutica da juventude adventista. O primeiro capítulo faz uma descrição histórica do "método texto-prova", sua origem e presença no cristianismo em geral e no adventismo em particular. Também faz uma distinção entre tal método e outros recursos hermenêuticos utilizados na teologia adventista, e uma breve avaliação do método à luz dos princípios hermenêuticos oficiais da Igreja Adventista do Sétimo Dia. O segundo capítulo verifica a presença do método texto-prova em materiais de orientação sobre o estilo de vida do jovem adventista, produzidos e divulgados pela Igreja Adventista do Sétimo Dia no período de 1986-2013. Finalmente, o terceiro capítulo avalia a influência do uso do "método texto-prova na espiritualidade e na formação hermenêutica dos jovens adventistas, utilizando-se da teoria dos Estágios da fé , de James Fowler.

3. Juneby, Hans Bertil. Lifestyle Medicine – a faith-based perspective.

Degree: Sweden, 2012, Örebro University

Lifestyle medicine is the use of lifestyle interventions in the prevention, treatment and management of disease. A faith-based community, which is the subject of much health lifestyle research, is the focus of this study. The Seventh-day Adventist church has promoted a healthy lifestyle, including a plant-based diet, since its foundation in 1863. Research shows that Adventists are much healthier and live significantly longer than the general population. Adventist vegetarians are even more healthy, and live about five years longer than non-vegetarians. The present study was designed to investigate how church leaders relate to the Adventist health lifestyle, and to what extent information about the benefits of adopting this lifestyle is communicated to church members in Sweden. Survey interviews with specific health-related lifestyle questions were used to collect the data. 60% of the respondents reported being vegetarian or vegan. Many agreed that pastors should be health educators as much as gospel preachers, but a majority did not have any academic or other education on health. Only a minority stated that they often preach or share the Adventist health message, but most respondents agreed that every church should be a school of health. The educational program for pastors and other church leaders should include adequate training and experience in health and lifestyle medicine from a faith-based perspective. Seventh-day Adventists should be the first to take full advantage of an evidence-based healthy lifestyle and live as examples to others.
