Seventh-day Adventist Church Offices in the Pacific Southwest
A statement from the Pacific Union officers regarding the outcome of the 2015 General Conference vote regarding ordination of women to the gospel ministry:
“Our focus is unchanged: the fulfillment of the mission of Jesus Christ, as enthused and led by the Holy Spirit. Our churches and members will continue in their ministries of hope and salvation, and our churches will be open for praise and worship on Sabbath—led by the women and men of our pastoral workforce. Further statements responding to the events at the General Conference on Wednesday, July 8, 2015, will be released as it is appropriate.”

About 226,000 members of the Adventist Church live in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada and Utah. Those members worship in 696 local congregations, which are grouped into seven conferences. Together, those local conferences comprise the Pacific Union Conference -- one of nine union conferences in the North American Division. There are 14 million Seventh-day Adventists around the world, including one million in the NAD.
Nearly 42 million individuals of European, Hispanic, African, Asian/Pacific, and American Indian ancestry live in the five southwestern states comprising the Pacific Union. Every Sabbath God's Word is preached in the Pacific Union in approximately 30 different languages.
