  Australia 
Description
A federation of six states with two mainland territories and additional island territories. Australia is an island continent. Public evangelism by both laity and clergy is still a successful way of spreading the Advent message, with women and youth making a high impact. Influence from 60 schools and two hospitals continues, not only in Australia but also in other parts of the world where volunteer medical specialty teams share their expertise. In another unique ministry, Australia has led the world Church in the use of television spot advertisements in Seventh-day Adventist image-building. A Bible college has been opened in Western Australia for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ministries. Overall, one in three members is over 50 years of age.
