The highest-ranking authority in the church is the General Conference.

Recommended Posts

With some 19 million members and 82,000 churches, Seventh Day Adventists follow a hierarchal network. The General Conference oversees the global ministry of the church. The General Conference is also responsible for the spiritual development of the church. It is headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The entire structure reflects a democratic process of election and formation.

Under the General Conference is the union conference, which is made up of conferences and divisions by geographic location. Under union conferences are local conferences, which are made up of churches in a state or territory. Finally, the local church and its members are under local conferences.

Each church elects their own church boards and officers, as do the other divisions. Worldwide, there are 13 divisions of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
