About Us

Our Past

On September 26, 1944, a group of intrepid men and women gathered at the Shiloh SDA Church in Chicago and voted into existence the Lake Region Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

As envisioned by the group, the main mission of the new Conference was the preaching of the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ within the context of the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14:6-12, thus leading people, especially African Americans within the Lake Union Conference territory, to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

The Lake Region Conference began to operate in January, 1945, with offices in Indianapolis, Indiana. For 70 years the Lake Region Conference has been engaging in mission and ministry that have brought transformation and growth to people and communities.
