As a service to our readers, we provide advertising space to Adventist Church and church-related organizations and businesses that provide products or services in harmony with the mission and beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Ads must be in good taste and represent businesses and organizations with excellent reputations. The Southwestern Union Record reserves the right to refuse or discontinue any advertisement at any time, and reserves the right to edit ads to comply with editorial policies.

The Record does not provide billing or collection services. All ads must be paid in advance. Ads will not be published until payment is received.
