Welcome to our Conference!
Welcome to the web home of the Idaho Conference. It is our hope that you will catch a vision of what God is doing in our part of this world.   We are the headquarters for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Southern Idaho and Eastern Oregon.

From farming to white water sports, from skiing to technology—the communities and people of Idaho and Oregon have a lot to offer. From our headquarters in Boise, Idaho, we provide resources and leadership for ministry to more than 6,500 members in our 50 congregations across the conference.  

We operate 11 elementary schools and Gem State Adventist Academy, a boarding and community high school, which educate many of our children and their friends in the community. Camp Ida–Haven, our year–round camp located on Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho, provides a fun, Christ–centered summer camp program to several hundred children. Churches, families, and other groups enjoy the scenic, retreat setting the rest of the year.  

Explore our site – find a place to visit, a place to call home. It is our hope and prayer that wherever you go, you will see Jesus shining through each of us.

Our Mission

Raise up people across Southern Idaho and Eastern Oregon who are so in love with Jesus that they share the fullness of His love as expressed in the Three Angels’ messages of Revelation 14. 

Our Vision
In the next 3 – 5 years move the focus of the Idaho Conference from a top-down bureaucracy to a cutting-edge, equipping, lay-driven, pastor-coached conference that is growing in personal spirituality and soul winning, with financial stability to fund mission and ministry.

(Mission and Vision were adopted by the Idaho Conference Board of Directors in April 2015 and was presented to the delegates at the May 2015 constituency session)

The Gifting of God

The Holy Spirit is manifested in a person's life throught the fruit, and through the gifts. Every Christian is to develop the fruit of the Spirit, but not every Christian will have every gift of the Spirit.

     The fruit of the Spirit is the work of the Spirit in the life of the disciple, it is character shaping, it is what happens inside a person that makes him or her become who they are in Christ. It reflects the person of Jesus. On the other hand, the gifts of the Spirit come as the work of the Spirit through the life of the disciple; it is what is seen outside Jesus' follower on behalf of the cause of Christ. The fruit shapes you. The gifts empower you to do God's work. And what does this empowerment for ministry lead to? It leads to unity and spiritual maturity, "till we all come to the unity of the faith . . . to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine" (Ephesians 4:13, 14).
