About GAiN - Global Adventist Internet Network
GAiN is a community of Seventh-day Adventist technologists, communicators and evangelists who connect to discuss the creative use of Internet technology in their work and in the lives of those whom they serve. GAiN was organized in 2004 by the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The community meets in an annual conference event, which is facilitated by the denomination’s Communication Department and the Office of Global Software & Internet (OGSI), in cooperation with the church’s world divisions and lay initiatives.
