Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

This Month's Issue

It’s been more than six years since Van and SaMonna Watts prayed earnestly for a child that God could use in a mighty way. They desired for their youngster to grow strong in faith and resolute in their dedication to God, like Moses, Joshua or Daniel. God gave them a beautiful baby boy they named Brayden, a little soldier for the Lord.

The Columbia Union Conference is putting forward significant funding to help prove that mission trips don’t require church members to cross oceans or enter foreign lands. Over the past five years, the union has donated $1 million toward its Homeland Mission Initiative. These monies go back to local Seventh-day Adventist churches to fund creative ministries programs, outreach projects and mission schools—all designed to share the gospel message right outside their front doors.
