About Us

Our Mission and Purpose

The Columbia Union Conference exists to advance and fulfill the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the Mid-Atlantic United States. We provide administrative leadership, governance, and support services to our conferences, ministries, healthcare networks, elementary and secondary schools, college and university. Above all, we assist and enhance the ministry of these organizations in sharing the three angels’ messages and preparing people—locally and globally—for Christ’s soon return.
