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 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)

Daily Devotional

Wordless Prayers

During the long months following the death of our child, I prayed more than I have ever prayed in my life. Yet I couldn't get back into the routine of my prayer time. Sometimes I couldn't pray at all. I would just sit and cry. How thankful I am that God understands a broken heart. I think He knew that my tears were my wordless prayer. I know He must have longed to hold me tight and wipe my tears away.

     The psalmist's words in Psalm 119:28 were my words: "I weep with grief; encourage me by your word". I marked them in my Bible and found it was God's Word that encourage me most. Each day God would lead me to the very verses that I needed at that moment to help me exist.
