Adventist Organizations Receive Millions in Federal Paycheck Protection Loans Despite Religious Liberty Concerns
General Conference and North American Division entities, along with dozens of Adventist academies, conferences, and independent ministries, received millions of federal dollars from the CARES ACT Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) designed to keep workers employed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Adventist organizations obtained the funds despite a strong NAD recommendation that church organizations abstain from participation in the program due to religious liberty concerns.
