Organized for Mission—The Business of Being a Church
How does the local congregation you joined conduct its business? How is this local congregation linked to the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church, and how does this global organization function? Where and when are decisions made, and by whom?
Structural Design for the SDA Church
The Seventh-day Adventist Church has both a local and a global identity. A Seventh-day Adventist person holds membership in a local Seventh-day Adventist Church. But this local church is only one of over 80,000 Seventh-day Adventist churches worldwide. How are all these churches linked into one global Seventh-day Adventist Church?
Every unit of Church organization (local church, local conference, union conference, General Conference, institutions) conducts periodic business meetings to address important matters. The election of persons to leadership roles is one of those important matters. How is a Nominating Committee selected? Who serves on the Nominating committee? What is the work of the Nominating Committee?
The Seventh-day Adventist form of governance is representative. It recognizes that authority rests in the membership and is expressed through duly elected representatives at each level of organization. This authority is expressed by Constituency session, the meeting of delegates—an event when delegates representing the member units in a church organization meet to conduct essential business for that organization.
