Black Adventist Church Officials From the US Meet With African Leaders in Kenya

History was made in April 2019 when a delegation of presidents of U.S. regional conferences — historically African-American Adventist Church administrative regions — traveled to Nairobi, Kenya, for a summit with Adventist church leaders of the East-Central Africa (ECD) and West-Central Africa (WAD) divisions, and the Adventist University of Africa (AUA) vice-chancellor. The delegation also included the executive secretary of the North American Division (NAD), the Regional Affairs director of the U.S.-based Pacific Union, and three regional conference treasurers.

Titled “Transatlantic Family Reunion Summit,” the venture, which was intended to build relationships, convened on the sprawling, scenic compound that is home to the headquarters of the ECD, AUA, and Maxwell Adventist Academy.
