The Arizona Conference was established in 1902. It has a church membership of more than 20,000, and contains 78 churches and 12 schools, including the Holbrook Indian School which is noted for its mission to help Native American students reclaim their God-given identities. It is also home to Camp Yavapines in Prescott, which offers summer camps and retreat opportunities.
Ed Keyes has been president of the Arizona Conference since 2017. Keyes has served as pastor, evangelist, church planter, academy teacher, administrator, ministerial secretary, executive secretary, and president while working in the Potomac, New Jersey, Oregon, Arizona, and Nevada-Utah conferences. He has conducted evangelistic meetings, weeks of prayer, and training seminars in more than half the conferences in the North American Division. He has traveled on international mission trips to the Middle East, Cuba, Mexico, Russia, and the Philippines. Keyes grew up in Jersey City, New Jersey. He gave his life to Christ and was born again in 1981. After attending a prophecy seminar held in a local firehouse near Atlantic City, New Jersey, he joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Originally a paramedic in Atlanta City, Keyes felt called to save souls just as he’d previously saved lives and enrolled at Washington Adventist University to study for the ministry. He has been married to Lillian for more than 30 years. They have two adult children, Andrew and Becky.
