The Literature Ministries department consists of four main channels of ministry: GLOW, Youth Rush, Colporteur Trade Academy, and CROSS Training. GLOW (Giving Light to our World) is a program encouraging everyone to carry literature wherever they go and distribute it as opportunity opens.
GLOW staff prepares and distributes tracts in multiple languages to believers around the world who have shared over 120,000,000 tracts within their communities in creative ways. California Youth Rush programs provide Adventist young people with opportunities to experience hands-on ministry though magabook literature evangelism each summer. Students learn how to approach people courteously, handle finances, and help people make spiritual decisions. CTA (Colporteur Trade Academy) is an online and in field training program to enable adults to make a living and a ministry serving God through colporteuring in today's environment. CROSS (Churches Reaching Out to Serve and Save) Trainers—formerly called Bible workers—train, invest in, and inspire church members to be involved in a life of evangelism.
