Frequently Asked Questions
What does Quiet Hour Ministries do?We reach thousands of people for Christ every year through volunteer-based international evangelism. Our short-term mission trips involve volunteers from every walk of life in soul-winning evangelism, children’s outreach, medical clinics, church construction and more!
What is your mission?Partnering with God in leading people to share His saving grace.
Are you affiliated with a Christian denomination?We are a supporting ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Our evangelistic meetings are in agreement with Adventist theology and in cooperation with local Adventist leaders. Most of our mission team members are also Adventists. So our work very much furthers the mission of the Adventist Church. But we are not administered by the denomination. Nor do we receive any financial support from the Adventist Church.
How long has Quiet Hour Ministries been around?Our ministry began on July 7, 1937, when Pastor J.L. Tucker began airing devotional radio program called “The Quiet Hour” in Portland, Oregon. Over the years we grew into a nation-wide radio broadcast and added a television program. It was in the mid-1960s that we first got involved in mission work. And that has expanded to the point where today evangelism mission trips are our core focus.
Are you still on the radio?To focus more closely on our evangelism mission trips, we ceased radio program production in 2005. This allows us to direct more funds into the mission field, where God has opened tremendous opportunities for our evangelism.
