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.

Daily Devotional

Be Still

Sometimes my life feels like one big blur of survival from holiday to birthday to school to doctor's office to mealtime to bedtime and back again. I am always running, and running late. It is hard to split my attention between four kids, a husband, and a house. It is hard sometimes to explain what I've done all day except to say that it's been a blur.

     And yet, within this mess of madness and mayhem that is life with children, God calls me into His presence to be still. "Be still, and know that I am God," He invites (Psalm 46:10). The first thing I notice about this invitation is that it was spoken by Someone who must know me very well. Someone who knows that I need "still." Have things been blurry in your life? Are you carrying the world's woes upon your shoulders? Be still; you don't have to be God - Somebody infinitely capable already has the job. Be still, friend; the Lord knows how to fight for you.
