This chapter looks at the origin and the early developmental experiences of the Seventh-day Adventists (SDA) Church. The Seventh-day Adventists initialized the ‘Shepherd's Rod’ movement or the ‘the Davidian Seventh-day Adventists’ that further brought about the Branch Davidians. In spite of some institutional distance, both the Davidians and the Branch Davidians viewed themselves as reformers of the SDA Church, and their missionary activity exclusively concentrated on the members of the SDA Church. This chapter and the next few chapters attempt to provide an account of the life and the teachings of five foremost leaders of the Branch Davidians. This chapter concentrates on Victor T. Houteff, his career, and how he advanced to the role of leader and prophet of the Davidian Seventh-day Adventists.

Keywords:   Victor T. Houteff, leader, prophet, Davidian Seventh-day Adventists, Branch Davidians, SDA Church
