Vernon Sparks is a second generation member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. He graduated with a BA in chemistry (minors in religion and mathmatics) in 1958, thus completing 16 grades of church school education. In 1962 he completed the four year training as an M.D. at Loma Linda University School of Medicine.
After internship, he and his wife Patricia, with infant daughter, began ten years of service at the Adventist Hospital and Nursing School in La Trinidad, Nicaragua.
In 1973 they were called to head up the medical work for the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists.
In 1976 they began eleven years of working in emergency rooms and clinics in the Knoxville, Tennessee area.
From 1987 – 1997 they worked in the health and publishing work of an independent, church supportive ministry in Washington state. It was there that Vernon obtained one of the first available Ellen G. White CD-ROMs and was able to combine its vast resource of inspired counsels with his life-long love of books. Out of this marriage has sprung a number of books and booklets covering a wide range of topics. This ongoing interest in publishing truth filled literature is reflected in this present website.
