Spokane Central Adventist Church hosted the leadership of the General Conference and Upper Columbia Conference of Seventh-day Adventists Sabbath, July 21, 2018. The special Sabbath, themed "Mission: Jesus' Priority," featured reports from the world church and the local conference.

Dr. G.T. Ng, secretary, began the day with an appeal asking, "Why are we here?." Patty Marsh, Upper Columbia Conference's Community Services director, followed with reports of what members are doing to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus in Spokane and throughout the Inland Northwest.

Elder Ted Wilson, Seventh-day Adventist Church president, preached the morning sermon. In it he appealed to members to keep their eyes on the target; Jesus soon return and sharing His love with a dying world. 

Following a fellowship meal, provided by the church, the afternoon continued with reports from several vice presidents of the world church. Minner Labrador, Upper Columbia Conference president, gave an inspiring address to conclude the day.

"Jesus came for the purpose to heal. He's coming again!" said Labrador. "When Christ becomes your all, He is the saving Lord. What is the Father's will? His will is to seek and save the lost…Will you join us in searching for the lost? Will you help the Father and the Son save his children?"
