About Us

Our Mission Statement

“To take the everlasting gospel to the world in this generation through evangelistic, educational, health and media ministries.”

Established in 1983, Hartland Institute of Health and Education promotes healthful living, quality Christian education, and missionary work. We train young men and women to be Christian missionaries in the fields of Bible work, pastoral work, public evangelism, medical ministry, Christian education, and Christian media and publications. We also operate a lifestyle education center which offers health guests the opportunity to learn and adopt lifestyles to better health.

Located in the beautiful Piedmont region of central Virginia, we also promote country living. Our students enjoy the peace, quiet, and surrounding scenery as they perform their everyday tasks and study the Bible—preparing for their life-calling. Our health guests are also blessed by the scenic views while their lives are being restored to good health. We are also located near many historic sites which students enjoy visiting while they study history.

Hartland is founded on the principles of the Word of God, and follows the blueprint given in the Bible for Christian education and a solid, healthful Christian lifestyle. The education we offer is a balanced blend of academics and training in practical skills.

The main divisions of Hartland Institute are Hartland College, Hartland Lifestyle Education Center, Hartland Publications, and Hartland World Mission. We also operate a diversified agricultural farm and provide a variety of media and technology services. Every summer, Hartland conducts a one-week youth Bible camp, which has proven to be a tremendous blessing to the many young people who attend. Hartland also publishes two periodicals, Last Generation magazine and Hartland Ministry Report.

An Open Letter to Our Tithe Donors

Jun 24, 2014

June 24, 2014

Dear Friends,

After providential leadings and prayerful consideration, our Board of Directors, with the support of our constituents, made the decision to no longer accept donations designated as “tithe” from known Seventh-day Adventist church members, effective July 1, 2014.

It is not an option for us at Hartland to negotiate on matters that involve eternal principles. We are committed to following God’s counsel and our convictions regarding present truth. Hartland has decided to forgo the acceptance of tithe in order to disarm prejudice and broaden our opportunities for ministry. As was the case with the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 6:12, we have concluded that although it is lawful for us to receive tithe to perform tithe-worthy activities, it is not necessarily expedient.

We have taken this step in order to “draw nigh to our brethren,” trusting in God’s leading and providence. The Seventh-day Adventist movement is God’s remnant church. Although it is imperfect and in a Laodicean condition, when the “work goes forward under the direction of the angel who joins the third angel in the message to be given to the world, God will use ways and means by which it will be seen that He is taking the reins in His own hands.”1

We are fully committed to following the Lord’s counsel in directing the institute. We believe it is God’s will for us to do everything within our power, without compromising principle, to work in harmony with His denomination. “Christ said, ‘Be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.’ If you see that by doing certain things which you have a perfect right to do, you hinder the work of the truth, refrain from doing these things. Do nothing that will close the minds of others against the truth. There is a world to save, and we gain nothing by cutting loose from those we are trying to help. All things may be lawful, but all things are not expedient.”2

Our mission remains the same—to proclaim the Three Angels’ Messages of Revelation 14, and to train an army of youth to live and spread this gospel effectively; and it is inspiring to see doors opening as we seek to fulfill this mission by sharing God’s last-day message with the world. Through health ministry, community outreach, literature evangelism, prison ministry, our farm, and the testimonies of students who dedicate their lives to serve God, souls are being transformed through the power of the gospel and are impressed to accept God’s principles into their lives.

We pray that God will impress your hearts to continue supporting Hartland with your prayers and generous financial gifts. The institute’s needs are the same as before. Here are some of our main funds: Where Needed Most donations may be used anywhere according to the greatest need. Evangelism covers our many evangelistic projects including Bible studies, health ministry, literature ministry, and so forth. The Ministry Fund supports our Bible teachers and those engaged in various lines of ministry work. Our Missionary Training Fund provides scholarships for worthy students to be trained as missionaries.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support.

In His service,



Norbert Restrepo
