Who We Are, How We Serve

The Columbia Union Conference coordinates the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s work in the Mid-Atlantic United States, where 145,000 members worship in 800 congregations. We provide administrative support to eight conferences, two healthcare networks, 81 elementary and secondary schools, a liberal arts university, a health sciences college, a dozen community services centers, six book and health food stores and a radio station.

Mission Values Priorities

We Believe

God is love, power, and splendor—and God is a mystery. His ways are far beyond us, but He still reaches out to us. God is infinite yet intimate, three yet one,
all-knowing yet all-forgiving.

Members of the Columbia Union Conference Executive Committee (some pictured above) traveled to Columbus, Ohio, last month for their third quarter meeting at the Allegheny West Conference’s newly opened headquarters.

At the news that tithe rose by $6 million or 9.09 percent above the previous year, the committee paused for a prayer of thanksgiving. “This would not be possible without the faithfulness of our members,” said Treasurer Emmanuel Asiedu.

They also rejoiced when Frank Bondurant, vice president for Ministries Development, announced that 55 churches have been planted unionwide this year.
