Southeastern California Conference gathers for Constituency Session
On Sunday, October 7, the La Sierra University church was the location for the 2018 Southeastern California Constituency Session. There are 177 churches and companies in Southeastern, with nearly 70,000 members. They were represented by some 600 delegates from across the five counties that make up the largest conference in the North American Division.
As is the custom and organizational structure for Seventh-day Adventists, on Sunday they came together to elect officers, listen to reports, act on recommendations, and put the work of God on a firm footing for the next five years. During the session, 75% of delegates voted their approval of the way in which Elder Sandy Roberts has been leading the church in Southeastern California by returning her to the office of President for another term. All the remaining personnel recommended by the Nominating Committee were voted in, each by more than 90% of the delegates. This included reelecting Jonathan Park, secretary, and Verlon Strauss, Treasurer—and the other Conference leadership.
