Adventist Contact was designed to introduce compatible and single Seventh-day Adventists. The need for this service arose from the number of men and women who were marrying outside of the Church and leaving their Adventist heritage.
In 1974, Adventist Contact was a new, innovative instrument to introduce couples who would not have ordinarily met. Since its inception, hundreds of individuals have married and found happiness as husbands and wives—some of whom in their eighties and nineties. Such is the story of Ron Bryant and Claire Breaux, the third couple to meet and marry through Adventist Contact.
Ron lived in Michigan and Claire lived in Louisiana. Ron didn’t know what a Cajun was, and Claire didn’t like cold weather, so only God could have brought them together. They were introduced through Adventist Contact, and its comprehensive profile helped them get better acquainted before meeting in early 1975. They married in August the same year.
Today, as Ron and Claire give back to God by attending and volunteering at Forest Lake Church, Apopka, Fla., they look back with no regrets for their prayerful decisions to join Adventist Contact. They are strong advocates for this matching ministry which serves only unmarried Seventh-day Adventists age 18 and older.
