The business session of the 61st General Conference Session of the Seventh-day Adventist Church has commenced in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. A prominent core of the meetings concerns the election of leaders for the World Church and the 13 world divisions. It is the responsibility of the nominating committee to fill these positions.
The nominating committee comprises persons from the 13 world divisions. As a part of the Inter-America Division, the Atlantic Caribbean Union (ATCU) has one representative to the nominating committee. Elder Roderick Sands, ATCU treasurer, has been voted as the member of the nominating committee. Our prayers are with him as he joins the other 267 members of the nominating committee, as they select leaders for the various administrative units of the global seventh-day Adventist Church.
