From our headquarters in Lincoln, Nebraska, OUTLOOK shares Adventist news and inspiring stories from around the Mid-America Union to help people grow closer to Jesus and in community with one another.

In addition to our growing worldwide online audience, 10 times each year OUTLOOK magazine, the official journal of the Mid-America Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, reaches over 70,000 member constituents in a 10-state region including Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and San Juan County in New Mexico. Our loyal readers include friends from around the world.

OUTLOOK has a rich history, providing news and inspiration to Mid-American Adventists for more than a century. Since its publication launch in 1902, the magazine has undergone several name changes including Central Advance (1902), Central Union Outlook (1911), Central Union Outlook Reaper (1932), Mid-America Adventist Outlook (1981) and OUTLOOK (Present).
