There are a number of media ministries associated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church. These come in print, radio and television forms and reach countries all around the globe. The Adventist church has a long history of media-based communication, having grown out of the Millerite movement of the 1840s which heavily used the print media. Some of the media ministries are directly funded by the church, while others are self-supporting organizations that rely on donations.
All the main Adventist broadcast ministries have engaged in worldwide outreach via numerous crusades and rallies. Worldwide outreach is also conducted by Adventist World Radio mostly via shortwave radiotransmissions, but also via AM, FM, satellite, Internet, including social media platforms, and direct-to-home satellite radio transmissions. Broadcasting is currently done from 10 transmitter sites in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
Many Adventist magazines are published around the world.
