This summer, the Northern California Conference (NCC) moved its headquarters to a new office building at 2100 Douglas Blvd. in Roseville. The office officially opened for business on Aug. 5.

The building is the former headquarters of Adventist Health, which recently relocated to a newly constructed building, also in Roseville. Adventist Health is leasing about a quarter of the NCC office for some of its operations.

Through the years, the headquarters of the Adventist church in Northern California has been located Lodi, Santa Rosa, and Oakland. For the past 47 years, the NCC has been based at 401 Taylor Blvd. in Pleasant Hill.

Roseville—about 20 miles northeast of Sacramento—is more easily accessible to a greater number of church members throughout the conference territory and has a lower cost of living than the previous location in the East Bay.

For the time being, the NCC operated Adventist Book Center store, located in the Pleasant Hill building, is still open for business. In the near future, the Pleasant Hill ABC and the Sacramento ABC (located on Madison Avenue) will join together into a single store in the NCC headquarters.
