Welcome to Filling the Gap. An audio podcast that tells the stories of the gaps we see in the world, within ourselves and inside of our church. Filling the Gap explores the topics and issues we face every day, but rarely address or discuss then openly. Through the power of storytelling, we hope to fill the gaps within our communities.

Filling the Gap is produced by the

North Pacific Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

In 2021, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America is at a crossroads. 


Within the next 5-10 years, an estimated 60+% of our pastors and administrators will retire. COVID-19 has totally changed the landscape of how we do church. Millennial and Gen Z Adventists in particular are questioning whether the Adventist church is relevant to our personal lives - and the world around us. 


And that’s why we made this podcast.


Hosted by documentary filmmaker Nina Vallado and Humans of Adventism creator Kaleb Eisele, How the Church Works is an eleven-part investigative podcast that examines Adventist history, identity and legacy, and if Adventism is relevant in our changing world. 


If you have curiosity, confusion or frustration about how the church works, this podcast is for you.
