The Compass Magazine’s board of directors is composed of laypeople who are committed to encouraging, educating, and empowering fellow Seventh-day Adventists by upholding the Advent Movement’s prophetic voice and affirming sound scriptural instruction. The board guides the website’s mission and purpose and provides oversight for magazine staff.

“We founded this ministry to help laypeople confront the unbiblical teachings and practices that all too often creep into the church. The Compass Magazine exposes these errors and affirms the church’s fundamental beliefs.” ~ Stephen Lucht
