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 Bermuda, Canada, and the United States to use the Internet to reach their communities. The NAD asked AdventSource to add website development and support to the resources and services they already 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.

Milton Adams, Webmaster, Simple Church“What stands out for me about ACC is the technical support. Lonny went above and beyond to make our site user-friendly. His ultimate goal was not simply telling people about ACC, but making sure we were satisfied and that the site would help accomplish the church’s goals.
I would definitely recommend ACC to other churches. It’s also wonderful that it’s free for churches – there are no extra costs. That makes it a big plus.”
