Executive Committee

Brian Schwartz, MD

President

Dr. Brian Schwartz is Medical Director of the Heart and Vascular Service Line at Kettering Health Network in Dayton Ohio. Although raised a fourth generation Seventh-day Adventist, he had a circuitous journey to discover the message of Christ's righteousness and develop a personal relationship with Jesus.

Dr. Schwartz struggled for years with the nagging conviction that medicine should be more than a job. He longed to make his medical work a healing ministry. His association with AMEN has helped him to integrate Christian spirituality into his practice in a more intentional and natural way. It brings him great joy to share with his patients the message that has so touched his heart.

Dr. Schwartz served as the editor of the Medical Evangelist (AMEN's journal) for 10 years. His tenure as AMEN President began in October 2017. He and his wife, Lyndi, also a physician, are a powerful ministry team in Dayton, Ohio.

Todd Guthrie, MD, PC

Secretary

Dr. Guthrie sees AMEN as a catalyst to further facilitate the bringing together of the everlasting gospel of Revelation 14:6–12 and the Adventist health message. He firmly believes that medical missionary evangelism will open hearts in preparation for and in conjunction with the outpouring of God’s Spirit in the final days of earth’s history. Dr. Guthrie, his wife, Patti, and their four children have been involved for years in ministry in their local church and abroad.
