  Austria 
Description
Formerly one of Europe's greatest empires, Austria has lost some of that power but remains a stable and neutral country with an international reputation as a center of culture and music. Growth of the Seventh-day Adventist Church has been slow, largely because of affluence and secularism. The average age of the membership is 47 years. However, women's groups and youth camps are being used as an evangelism tool, though one of the largest challenges is enlisting the witness of all laity to work with clergy in outreach. The Seventh-day Adventist junior college/academy rates as one of the top ten schools in the country.
