North American Division Announces G. Alexander Bryant New NAD President

Elder Dan Jackson is retiring, having completed two full terms as president. The new president is Elder G. Alexander Bryant—who comes to the presidency from his role as NAD Executive Secretary. He is also an Associate Secretary of the General Conference.

Elder Bryant came to the North American Division in October of 2008 from the Central States Conference in Kansas City, Kansas, where he served as president for 11 years. He is a graduate of Oakwood College (now Oakwood University) and holds degrees in Theology and Business Administration. In 2011, Bryant earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary.

Last summer Elder Bryant led a delegation of leaders from the GC Secretariat and the world divisions on a whirlwind tour of the North American Division, including our Union. They visited some of the most exciting ministry sites in the Pacific Southwest, including the Vietnamese Evangelism Center, La Sierra University and the La Sierra University church, Loma Linda University Health, Adventist Health Headquarters, Pacific Union College, and the Veg Hub restaurant in Oakland. They concluded their visit with a commitment service at Elmshaven.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to menace our communities and impact our members, our churches, our schools, our hospitals—and our future—we seek God’s protection for His people and His church. We’re thankful for leaders like Elder Bryant and Elder Jackson. We praise God each day for our own leadership here in the Pacific Union and in each of our conferences.
