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 51 congregations across the conference.  

We operate 10 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 leadership style 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)

God Takes the Initiative

After a full year of local evangelism, Barnabas and Paul, still under Barnabas's leadership, were sent by the church on a missionary journey through foreign lands. This is the first missionary endeavor in Acts that is intentional and carefully planned, yet Luke makes it clear that God was the one who took the initiative. He works through human decisions, but salvation history follows a superior plan--one conceived in the heart and mind of God.

Paul's first journey established him as the leading missionary among the apostles. Such recognition, however, is only part of the story. From the beginning, enormous difficulties and supernatural forces worked against him and Barnabas. . . . At every turn, he risked his life for the sake of the gospel.

God never promised an easy path for Paul, and trials never diminished his missionary zeal. Upon returning to Syrian Antioch, he and Barnabas "gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles", a door that would never shut.
