This week church leaders, local pastors and institutional leaders from across the Seventh-day Adventist church in North America gathered to discuss ways to collaborate to reach, retain and reclaim the people of North America with Jesus’ message and mission.

Topics covered included church revitalization, the trend of aging churches, ministering to large people groups (such as single mothers and their families) and how to reach missing Adventist members.

Several Columbia Union Conference leaders spoke, including David Franklin, pastor of Allegheny East Conference’s Miracle City church in Baltimore; Jennifer Deans, pastor of Potomac Conference’s Living Faith church in Sterling, Va.; Paulo Macena, director of Youth Ministries at the New Jersey Conference; Rubén Ramos, vice president for Multicultural Ministries at the Columbia Union; and Ann Roda, vice president for Mission Integration and Spiritual Care at Adventist HealthCare.
