Lineage is a video series that will include 100 episodes on church history and is designed for young people. The videos will be released weekly via the social media platforms of Facebook and YouTube and a dedicated website that will include additional information. 

2017 marks the 500th year since Martin Luther kickstarted the Protestant reformation by nailing his 95 Theses to the door of Wittenberg Cathedral. 500 years on from that momentus event and there are people who are attempting to minimise the significance of what happened or trying to reinterpret history. More than ever before it is important for us to understand our spiritual heritage as Seventh-day Adventists. Our church did not form in a vacuum, isolated from the rest of the Christian world, but rather our prophetic identity was a culmination of truth lost and then rediscovered.  It's important for us today to be able to trace back our spiritual heritage and see where we have come from.

In order to reach the targeted audience of young people, the videos will be released via the social media platforms of Facebook and YouTube and will be only 3-5 minutes long. Each episode is filmed on site and will incorporate stunning aerial footage and give viewers a chance to see for themselves places that we often just hear spoken about in sermons or in books.  

Throughout 2017, each week a episode will be released, each one focusing on a different aspect of our spiritual lineage. Some of them will focus on people such as Martin Luther, John Wycliffe, John Calvin or John Wesley. Others will focus on groups of people such as the Waldenses and Albigenses and the struggles that they went through to preserve the true faith during the Dark Ages. Each one plays a part in telling our story today as Seventh-day Adventists as they form a part of our family heritage. Understanding our identity today is vital, and a key component of that is understanding where we have come from in the past. 

In 2018 the series will shift from Reformation history to our church history, showing the spiritual connections that we have with the reformation but importantly, showing the key historical moments and stories in the formation of our church.

The money that is raised will be used to cover the logistical costs of filming such as travel expenses, accommodation and living expenses for the camera crew while on the road, production costs and website production.

Thank you to everyone for your donations through out this year that have enabled us to film the majority of Season 2. Over the past 2 months we have filmed 42 episodes that will be released next year leaving us just 10 episodes to film. Praise God! Its been a busy time but we have been so blessed by the places that we have had a chance to visit and the stories and history that we were able to film. We are really looking forward to releasing this series next year!

We are still short of our goal and the amount that we need to finish they project and in the immediate future we need to raise £3800 before the end of the year to cover the next phase of the filming. We ask that you continue to keep this project in prayer and if you are able to give then please prayerfully do so.

I have just begun watching this series. I love the format and the information of the history of the church. So very fascinating. Roku TV has it now. So very well done.

You are doing a great work for God. My Sabbath school youth enjoy your videos very much. I don't feel that I am a very good teacher and your videos make up for my lack of ability. Thank you so much.
