Officers Re-Elected

On May 15, 2016, the Minnesota Conference Association held their Second Quadrennial (108th regular) Constituency Session. During regular conference constituency sessions, electing officers for the next four years is a high priority. The names for each position are recommended by the Nominating Committee prior to the constituency session.
Twenty members of the Nominating Committee are selected by the delegates of ten territorial regions, meeting separately to select representatives from the region they represent. Three additional members are selected by the Board of Trustees. The committee is chaired by the Mid-America Union Conference President or his designee. This year, Gil Webb, President of the MAUC, chaired the Nominating Committee a few weeks prior to the Constituency Session.
We are pleased to announce that the constituency voted to re-elect Justin C. Lyons to be our Conference President and Brian K. Mungandi to be our Conference Vice Present for Administration. Each candidate was recommended for reelection by the Nominating Committee, and was voted into their position by a sweeping majority. 
Elder Justin C. Lyons       Elder Brian K. Mungundi

Reggie Leach has accepted the Vice President for Finance position in the Arizona Conference, and due to time constraints, a candidate to fill that role in Minnesota was not brought forth during the constituency session. That position will be filled through the regular hiring process by the Board of Trustees.

CAMP MEETING, JUNE 10-18, 2016

All in for Jesus

With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends,

stand your ground. And don't look back.

Throw yourselves into the work of the Master,

confident that nothing you do for him

is a waste of time or effort.  1 Cor. 15:58

                      Simple Church Workshop,

                      September 23-25, 2016 @ North Star Camp

Simple Church is a lay-led house church planting network.  Simple Churches meet on Sabbath in homes and focus on reaching secular and/or unchurched people, the “nones and dones” in today’s culture.

Fact #1:  Last year, 104 million Americans walked away from their local churches to go find God. This may come as a surprise, but a massive cultural shift is taking place in America.  The questions we must ask ourselves are: How will we reach these people?  Are we willing to become modern-day missionaries to reach these people?


Fact #2:  50% of the attendance in the average Simple Church is secular and/or unchurched people.  Why?  In today's changing culture, people are more comfortable gathering for Bible study in home settings where strong trusting relationships are developed.  Their first question is, Do I trust you?  If they trust you, then you can influence them spiritually.

 How do I get started?

  • Minnesota Conference has scheduled a Simple Church Training Workshop for September 23-25, 2016, at North Star Camp. Registration information is listed below.  Minnesota members will be given first priority in registering until July 1, 2016.
             Can my family come?
  • Yes.  Simple Church is about reaching “the mission field that lives where you live”—beginning at home. One of the best ways to reach this first mission field is to bring them alongside you as part of the mission team.
  • In keeping with this family-styled missionary work, children are welcome to come and participate.
  • There will be no child care provided, so please plan to bring quiet activities for young children. Parents are responsible for supervision.
             How much does it cost?
  • Five Meals served. Each meal is $10 per person, $5 for children ages 3 – 12, children under 3 years free.
  • Seminar fee is $25 per participant over the age of 12.
            What Lodging Options?
  • $80 per Cabin
  • $26 per tent site (bring your own tent)

Reserve your place.  Reservation deadline is September 1, 2016.
