T

he Potomac Conference Corporation

of Seventh-day Adventists is

committed to partner with Heaven

and fulfill the gospel commission (Matt.

28:19-20), take a message of salvation

to each individual in our mission field

through the power of the Holy Spirit and,

understanding our prophetic role, we will

proclaim the Three Angels Messages

(Rev. 14). We believe that God has called

us for this specific time as we look

forward to the soon return of Jesus Christ.

It is our desire, by His grace, to be faithful

to this calling.

Mission

The Potomac Conference

Corporationexists to grow healthy,

disciple-making churches.

2020 Vision

• By 2020, our membership/

attendance will more than double

in size, one precious soul at a time.

• By 2020, more than 70% of our

congregations will be healthy,

disciple-making churches

through community focus,

pastors equipped as servant

leaders, members equipped and

empowered to do the work of

ministry and churches reproducing

themselves in other localities.

• By 2020, each community or

people group of 20,000 or more

will have a Seventh-day Adventist

presence.

• By 2020, each school will be strong

spiritually and academically; they

will be disciple-making; they will

be one of the greatest assets to

the local church constituency.

Dear Delegates,

The Potomac Conference Corporation is a diverse body of Christ. To date, we have over 33,000 members,

182 congregations, 19 schools and numerous other kingdom-building ministries. Our membership

represents more than 120 countries and a myriad of languages, nations and cultures. As diverse as we are,

we come together to fulfill the mission to grow healthy, disciple-making churches and schools.

As regular delegates, you have been chosen by your local congregation, or as delegates-at-large by the

organization’s bylaws, to be a participant of the Second Quinquennial Constituency Meeting at the Sligo

Seventh-day Adventist Church on September 27, 2015. This is a sacred trust. On this day we prayerfully

come together to conduct the business of the Potomac Conference Corporation. This is the business

of understanding and moving forward with the heavenly agenda of fulfilling the gospel commission and

making disciples. Jesus prayed: “Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on Earth as it is heaven.”

Jesus told us to preach the gospel “throughout the whole world, as a testimony to all nations; and then

the end will come”(Matt 24:14). We must continue sharing the message of His soon return, the Good

News of salvation through Jesus Christ, the grace-filled warnings of Revelation and equipping disciples

to be faithful in fulfilling the mission we have been given. As we look forward, our collective prayer is

that by 2020 each member will have the privilege of bringing another person into fellowship for His

kingdom; that our schools will be academically and spiritually strong; our churches will be actively teaching

and demonstrating what it means to be about the work of our Father; and that we have reached the

communities of 20,000 or more with the unique message of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The church is the process by which heaven brings God’s kingdom to earth. The church is the entity “which

God bestows in a special sense His supreme regard” (AA12). Christ, the head of God’s church, is to be

glorified and through the church He will reveal the “manifold wisdom of God” (Eph. 3:10).

In the following pages you will see a panoramic view of what has happened over the past five years and

where we sense God is leading this conference in the years to come. This is a time to rejoice as we reflect

on the evidences of God’s mercy and grace.

Thank you for your prayers, partnership and participation in moving Christ’s mission forward in Potomac.

Our prayer is that, at the conclusion of our meeting day, we will have clearly sensed the moving of His

Spirit and know, with clarity, that His work is being done and that His kingdom will come soon.

Fellow disciples on the journey,

Letter to Delegates

Bill Miller, Jorge Ramirez, Dave VandeVere

What is a Constituency Meeting?

Table of Contents

A constituency meeting of the Potomac Conference Corporation brings together delegates (voting

members) who represent each of the local churches and companies that make up the territory

of the Potomac Conference Corporation. Credentialed employees of the Potomac Conference

Corporation and members of various standing committees are also delegates at the constituency

meeting. The constitution and bylaws of this organization determine the selection privilege of

delegates and what takes place prior to and during a constituency meeting. It is the opportunity

for the body of Christ, in Potomac, to come together to pray and seek God’s will as we move

forward in the fulfillment of God’s mission.

Accountability

A constituency is a meeting where leaders and

laity function in an atmosphere of supportive

accountability. Elections take place and reports

are given which should be analyzed as to whether

or not the overall mission of the church is being

accomplished. Some view a constituency as a

session of congress where every perceived issue

is addressed and where every delegate makes a

speech. Others see it as a time to right possible

wrongs. A constituency meeting is actually a time to

pray and give healthy feedback to the initiatives set

forth by different committees.

Reports

This book focuses on the corporate officers and

two vice presidents (who will be voted at this

meeting), with reports of what has taken place

in their departments since the last constituency

meeting. It is the responsibility of the delegate to

evaluate how well these leaders are executing the

tasks entrusted to them. Though the officers’ and

vice presidents’ teams are pictured in this book, all

directors, associates and assistants will be voted at

the first executive committee meeting following the

constituency meeting. In both books, symbols have

been inserted next to staff pictures to indicate which

meeting the individual will be voted at: indicates

this individual will be voted at the constituency

meeting, indicates that the individual will be voted

at the next executive committee meeting. Each leader

has projected a vision of how their work will support

the mission of the Potomac Conference Corporation.

Agenda

The process in formulating the agenda has been

carefully guided by our constitution and bylaws.

As outlined, the process begins at the local church

board. Ideas are then presented in conjunction with

conference administration who evaluates each item

and presents them to the conference executive

committee who finalizes the agenda. These agenda

items are viewed and processed with the focus of how

to serve the mission of Jesus Christ more effectively.

Delegate Material

You are encouraged to carefully read all delegate

material. These documents are part of the foundation

for this constituency meeting. By reading these

materials and attending the constituency delegate

orientation meeting you will be better informed to

participate in the proceedings at the constituency

meeting. Let us pray that God’s mission may be

completed in our territory as we anticipate Jesus

Christ’s soon return.

Constituency Meeting Procedure

Purpose

Potomac Conference Corporation is a cooperative

organization of local Seventh-day Adventist

congregations bound together for the mutual purpose

of growing healthy, disciple-making churches.

Delegate Responsibility

Each organized church and company in the Potomac

Conference Corporation has appointed delegates on

the basis of church membership—one delegate for

each church plus one delegate for each 50 members

or major fraction thereof. Delegates appointed by their

church are to loyally represent the best interest of the

conference. No delegate, conference employee or

administrator shall abuse his or her power by trying to

influence other delegates to vote in favor or against a

particular item. The delegates should unite in prayer and

dedication to transact the business of the meeting in

such a way as to advance the mission of the gospel.

The information in these reports are to be shared by the

delegates with members of their respective churches.

Some delegates will be asked to serve on either the

organizing or nominating committees prior to the

constituency meeting. The delegates will vote on the

constituency meeting for final consideration.

7. Delegates will be given opportunity to voice

constituency meeting.

8. The majority vote (or two-thirds vote where

designated by the bylaws) by the delegates

present will constitute the official action of the

Seventh-day Adventists exist because we believe, work toward and desire the second

coming of Jesus Christ and to be with Him forever. With passion, we proclaim His

message of grace and salvation, His grace embedded messages of Daniel and

Revelation and His literal return. Jesus bade us to go make disciples. We are reminded in

Matthew 24:14 that “this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a

testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” He prayed for His kingdom to be here

now and our Savior has called us to be partners with Him now. As we strive to do His will on

earth, we must understand that it simply means to:

• love God with all of your heart, soul, and mind,

• love your neighbor as yourself,

• be known as His disciples through our love for others and

• go make disciples, teaching and baptizing.

Over the past years, I have had the privilege of preaching and fellowshipping, and in some

places, more than once, with every church and company in Potomac. At every location, I have

been encouraged by how God is working through members to establish His will on earth. I never

tire of hearing how, through divine coincidences, divine appointments and divine encounters,

individuals are confronted with the gospel of Jesus and hearts melted by His love.

In the last five years, we have

seen the spirit moving in so

many ways and confirming the

Lord’s will is being done:

• 5,919 people have joined by baptism and

profession of faith.

• Eight new churches have been planted and 6

new companies.

• An average of 1,695 students have been

enrolled in our schools each year.

• 8,473 students have attended our School

of Discipleship; 606 graduated through our

Hispanic training and more than 300 house

groups were started.

• Four house churches were established

through the partnership of the General

Conference, North American Division,

Columbia Union, Potomac Conference

Corporation and the New Market Seventh-day

Adventist Church (Va.), in an attempt to find

new ways to reach small communities.

Southern Asian Church, photo courtesy of Southern Asian Church.

• An eight church mega-district was established, supported by

three pastors, to experiment with new and effective church

models.

• Leadership of Community Praise Church (Alexandria, Va.)

partnered with the conference to establish multi-site campuses.

• Through Camp Blue Ridge (Montebello, Va.), young adults are

being trained to be leaders for the church and 1,239 young

people, plus user groups, have been touched with the gospel of

Jesus and been challenged to renew their walk with Him.

• $159,081,942 of faithful tithe money has supported the mission

of the church.

There are many things we can rejoice and should rejoice over. We

also continue looking for solutions to challenges like:

• finding effective ways to better involve young adults,

• increasing the impact of Adventist Christian education,

• discovering new streams of resources to further His kingdom,

• engaging each church and school in His mission through,

creative evangelism,

• praying for a revival to true godliness and

• fulfilling the Mission and Vision of the Potomac Conference

Corporation by 2020.

As we continue together on our journey as the Lord’s disciples, let

us move forward with the Lord’s guidance, praying, “Our Father in

heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be

done on earth as it is in heaven.”

safeguarding the integrity of the church through the development, interpretation and implementation of policy, as

well as overseeing prison ministries, Religious Liberty, Shield the Vulnerable (child protection program), the human

resources department, membership statistics, credentials and licenses.

Significant Accomplishments 2010-2014

• Baptisms and Professions of Faith – As a result of their commitment to our mission and vision, pastors,

churches and support ministries have added a total of 5,919 baptisms and professions of faith.

• Members Added – A total of 11,202 members were added to the Potomac Conference church family.

• New Church Plants – 14 new church plants were added as a result of the vision and leadership of our Associate

for Church Planting and Evangelism, Hispanic Ministries Director and several dedicated mission-focused pastors.

all employees and volunteers working with minors to register, be trained and take a background check through

Shield the Vulnerable, a child protection program. We continue on this journey to make every school, church and

conference institution a safe place for all children.

• Early Childhood Educational Centers (ECECs) – In partnership with our education department,

administration has begun a process of moving all of ECECs into Integrated Auxiliary Corporations of the Potomac

Conference. Through this process, we are looking at (1) formally recognizing these organizations, (2) providing

better oversight, (3) creating a better business model, (4) establishing a better structure for growth and

accountability and (5) addressing liability.

• Prison Ministries – This lay led ministry,

under the coordination of Hector Cruz, Ryland

Holmes and Moises Escalera have partnered

We praise God for the faithfulness of the conference

church members who have returned more than

$159,000,000 of God’s tithe during the last five years.

God has kept His word in that as we have “tested”

Him, as outlined in Malachi 3:10, He has poured out

abundant blessings on us. 26% of tithe is shared

with higher organizations while 74% is retained at

the conference level for the accomplishment of the

mission God has given us: to grow healthy, disciplemaking

churches and schools.

Net Tithe Retained

GC, NAD, CUC

It is the privilege of the treasury department to report

on the audited financial operations for the Potomac

Conference during the last five years. Finances

continue to be aligned to aggressively pursue our

mission and vision even while having to face and

overcome various challenges. By God’s grace and with

strong business leadership, the financial operations of

LivingWell (formerly known as the Potomac Adventist

Book & Health Food Store) remain solid. Shenandoah

Valley Academy and Takoma Academy are each gaining

strength as they carry out their respective God-given

missions and for this we are also thankful.

Net Increase Decrease (Decrease)

The conference has been intentional in supporting new pastoral and teacher placements for strategic Kingdom growth.

This, combined with higher than expected costs and the partial writing off of certain institutional debt, has resulted in

operating decreases in four of the last five years. A three-year plan has been voted by the Conference Executive Committee

to restructure the budget so this trend of losses can be reversed.

Significant Accomplishments 2010-2014 – By God’s Grace

• Completed online training videos for local treasures and training during EQUIP meetings.

• Began the implementation of conference and local entity safety programs.

• Implemented new institutional payroll policy for increased accountability.

• Restructured conference budgeting process.

• Developed a three-year plan for stabilization and increase of financial working capital.

• Developed plans for a restructured and integrated conference finance committee.

• Assisted in the acquisition, financing and refinancing (74 transactions) of church/school buildings and land for

mission growth.

What We Plan to Accomplish Going Forward – By God’s Grace

• Continue to strategically train local church/school treasurers and to develop local metrics (dashboards) as a

resource to encourage discipleship/stewardship.

• To work with the North American Division of SDA and private businesses to provide integrated online giving

applications.

• To fully utilize the newly structured and integrated conference finance committee for the benefit of all conference

institutions – LivingWell, SVA, TA and local churches/schools.

• To fully implement and monitor a three-year plan for working capital restoration and growth.

• To develop and implement an owner’s representative program to benefit capital projects of the conference and

all of its entities.

• To develop and implement plans to increase available debt capacity and plant financial reserves to support

mission growth.

Total Tithe increased from $30,500,000 in 2010 to $33,100,000 in 2014, an 8.5% increase. However, when adjusted for the Consumer Price

Index (CPI) as a measure of inflation, it is evident that real growth has been static. In purchasing power, tithe has decreased slightly since 2005.

This presents significant challenges as employee costs continue to rise.

Working capital measures the ability of the conference to carry on

its day-to-day operations. Aggressive investment in local school

projects, assuming payments on church mortgages in default and

unanticipated cost increases, contributed to a significant decline

in working capital. Monetizing non-performing long-term debt

and the development of an aggressive three year recovery plan

helped to stabilize working capital in 2014.

The conference and its local churches/schools have an overall debt

capacity limitation that fluctuates slightly around $32,500,000. In the

last half of 2014, the unused capacity dipped below the emergency

reserve level of $1,000,000. A moratorium on new loans for building

or expansion projects was put in place and continues into 2015

until payments on current mortgages increase available capacity.

Working capital must be maintained above 61% for the conference

debt capacity to not be more severely limited.

Vice President for Pastoral Ministries’ Report

Voted at Constituency Meeting in September 2015 Voted at Executive Committee in November 2015

JOHN CRESS served as a pastor for 32 years before coming to the Potomac Conference

Corporation. He holds a Bachelor of Art from Walla Walla College (Wash.) and Master of

Divinity from Andrews University. He served as an associate and district pastor, church

planter and the lead pastor of a multi-staff church before coming to the Potomac Conference

Corporation. He and his wife Karen (Assistant to the President for Strategic Initiatives) began

their work in Potomac in September of 2011.

Cress has a passion for the local church and encouraging pastors to be effective servant leaders and shepherds of

their congregations. He has a heart for equipping the laity for ministry. His hope is to help grow healthy, disciplemaking

churches that are actively and tirelessly fulfilling the mission of Jesus.

Mission

Our mission in the pastoral ministries department is to identify, train and empower pastors as servant leaders to

build healthy, disciple-making churches.

Since the last Constituency Meeting, 13 pastors have been ordained into the

gospel ministry, photo by Aaron Cheney.

Three churches have been planted through Hispanic Camp Meeting, photo by

Tony Ventouris – Ancient City Photography.

The pastors and congregational leaders of the Potomac Conference Corporation are valued, supported, trained and

are accountable as they cultivate healthy churches. Each church radiates the hope and wholeness of a spiritually

maturing and numerically growing, healthy body.

Significant Accomplishments 2010-2014:

Our ministry with pastors has included:

• Providing monthly leadership and ministry coaching and support for every Potomac Conference Corporation pastor and

Bible worker.

• Developing the leadership, teamwork and collegiality of our pastors through monthly LEAD Groups.

• Designing a six-step process to encourage pastors to develop their churches strategically through worship, evangelism,

external focus, mission, vision and values.

• Developing and initiating quarterly intern pastor training.

• Providing pastor meetings three times a year.

• Adding 36 new pastors and two Bible workers to our ministerial team through a process which involved referencing more

than 300 pastors.

• Providing a professional baseline accountability document to pastors.

• Having the Ordination Committee meet twice each year to review and interview interns who are on the ordination track.

Training events provided to further the mission:

on church planting, for pastors and lay leaders.

• Church Works, a three-module training process developed by

the North American Division of Evangelism, was held in the

Richmond and Tidewater areas.

• Provided training and resources for women’s ministry in the

local church.

• When asked by churches, provided on-site training for a

variety of ministries and relational skills.

• Hispanic pastors participated in 85 pastoral meetings and

three spiritual retreats in which they dedicated time to plan,

pray, and ask that the Holy Spirit guide their plans to fulfil the

mission in harmony and with the counsel of our leaders.

Accomplishments in Hispanic Ministries:

• After 8 years, more than 600 students have graduated from

the School of Theology and Discipleship in the areas of homechurch

leader, Bible instructor, evangelist and pastor’s assistant.

• More than 300 participants have attended the five annual

Elders’ Spiritual and Training Retreats.

• Twenty training events were held for children’s Sabbath

School leaders and North American Division certification

seminars were offered.

• Women’s Ministries, Children’s Ministries, churchelders,

Pathfinders and Adventist Youth Societies held weeks of

evangelism.

• More than 52,000 pieces of literature and evangelism

materials were distributed through events and local churches.

• Thousands of non-Adventists tune-in daily to Radio programs

Ondas de Esperanza and Accion de Adventista, which air

in three different ways: via WWGB 10:30 AM Radio Poder,

through the Tune-in application (Radio Vuelve) and by dialing

415-655-0848

• All Hispanic groups, companies, churches and home

churches were actively involved in evangelism campaigns

each year, which resulted in thousands of baptisms.

Evangelism and Church Planting

After Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness, He returned to His hometown, Nazareth, and went directly to the synagogue where the scroll of

the book of Isaiah was handed to Him to read. He opened it, and read from Isaiah 61: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has

anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives

And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the

Lord” (Luke 4:18-19).

In this reading, Jesus set His mission to the world—letting the Jews in the synagogue know exactly His purpose for being on earth. Ellen

White agrees, explaining how Jesus went about fulfilling his mission: “He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and

won their confidence. Then He bade them, ‘Follow Me’” (Ministry of Healing, pg. 143).

With this in mind, the church planting initiative accentuates the mission to “grow healthy, disciple-making churches.” The goal is to plant

churches in communities of 20,000 or more where there is no Adventist presence. We hope training events and an emphasis on church

planting will encourage even more growth across Potomac. The church planting committee oversees the establishment of groups,

companies and churches. The following chart indicates church planting initiatives for each year, which were voted by the committee.

• Provided Elder’s Digest magazine to every elder in the Potomac

Conference Corporation.

• Thanks to the generosity of our Hispanic members and pastors, the

mortgage and expenses of the Adventist Center for Evangelism and

Discipleship have been covered. In the last 5 years, we have paid

$204,019.26 for expenses and $762,478.90 on the mortgage.

In light of Jesus’ mission and the application given by Ellen White in Ministry of Healing, the Potomac Conference Corporation has been

moving from just an event-based evangelism process to a holistic three-step process, encouraging churches to:

1. become a presence in the community,

2. provide for the needs in the community and

3. make a call to join God’s Kingdom.

Supporting this three-step approach, training opportunities like EQUIP, SEEDS, Church Works, Hope for Today and the School of

Discipleship have been designed to nurture, prepare and empower laity to reach within their sphere of influence. Churches in every

region of the conference have become increasingly more engaged in their communities through creative events like health fairs,

neighborhood parties, service events and family and marriage seminars. Through these diverse efforts and leaders, 5, 919 souls were won

for the Kingdom from 2010 – 2014.

Vice President for Education’s Report

Voted at Constituency Meeting in September 2015 Voted at Executive Committee in November 2015

KEITH HALLAM began his career at Wisconsin Academy, teaching various technology

vocational courses while expanding his services to guidance counseling, academic registrar and

administration.

Shortly after receiving his Master in Education, he transferred from the classroom to full-time

administration. Keith served as a principal for 18 years and, in 2009, began his ministry in the

Potomac Conference as Vice President for Education.

Through personal experiences, Hallam understands the responsibility of evangelism in our schools and potential that

every teacher and administrator has for sharing the assurance of salvation. He believes Adventist education should

always be upheld to the highest academic standard and with a personal touch that brings Jesus Christ to life and

excites the student to know more about their Savior. Hallam and his wife, Kandyce, have been married for 30 years.

They have three grown children: Kurtis, Korrine and Kristofor.

Student Achievement

Along with daily monitoring of student learning in the classroom, we engage our 3rd through 8th

grade students with the Iowa Test of Basic Skills exam, in which Potomac students average higher

than the national average (see 2014 Iowa Assessment graph, pg. 37). Additionally, our 8th

grade students are encouraged to take the ACT Explore exam during the spring semester, helping us

determine our 8th graders readiness for college (see college readiness graph, pg. 37).

Mission

The Potomac Conference Corporation Office of Education exists to inspire the future of healthy, disciple-making

churches by developing passionate and qualified educators who nurture growth in our students through

relationships, excellence and service to the glory of God. Over the past five years, we have undertaken several

initiatives to encourage our school communities, focus our attention on improvement and challenge our education

team to better themselves for the benefit of their students.

Many Potomac Teachers have been presented with various awards, including Carmen Esposito, (left) teacher at John Nevins Andrews School, and Jim Minty (right), who teaches at Shenandoah Valley

Adventist Elementary. Esposito photo courtesy of Columbia Union. Minty photo courtesy of SVAE.

Significant Accomplishments in the last five years

Meeting the financial challenges that Adventist education faces has been a major priority these past five

years. Several initiatives and applications have been put into practice to help ease the burdens at the

local level:

• Facility Grants – $101,675 has been awarded in the form of annual $5,000 matching grants

to 12 of our 17 elementary school to assist with projects such as gym remodel, energy efficient

HVAC units, lighting and windows, smoke detectors, fire alarms, roof repairs, asphalt, sidewalks,

playground equipment and various other maintenance and repairs.

• Technology Grants – $101,000 has been gifted in annual $3,000 grants to 14 of our 17

elementary schools for computers, servers, wireless connections, software, document cameras,

electronic instructional boards and high speed internet access.

• Potomac Partners Offering Tuition assistance – Since 2011, a total of $209,000 has been

awarded to 283 students through scholarships funded by Potomac Partners.

• Potomac Conference Education Foundation - Through a brand new Virginia Tax Credit

initiative, $308,000 was provided to 100 new students for tuition scholarships kindergarten through

12th, during the 2014-15 school year. We expect the giving to increase and assist more students

during the 2016-17 school year. (see Education Foundation graph, pg. 36)

• Connected School Program – Real-time classroom instruction is provided to off-site

classrooms around the conference via Richmond Academy, allowing Potomac students to continue

Adventist education where an academy may not be available to them. June 2016 will mark our first

graduates from this cooperative venture in education.

These implementations have allowed five of six small schools to increase enrollment, improved teacher

collaboration and developed easier ways to evaluate school culture, demographic changes, parents’

concerns and areas of satisfaction.

Sharing Jesus in the classroom

The foundational reason for operating our schools is the focus on sharing Jesus Christ’s redemption story

with our students. Three hundred and sixty students were baptized during the past Quinquennial period

(see baptism graph, above). Over 300 non-Adventist families have enrolled in our schools over this

period as well and are being introduced to the gospel message.

Our vision for the next five years

• Direct the development and implementation for school improvement plans to address:

• spiritual development,

• academic rigor and

• relevant curriculum for each student.

• Develop and implement strategic sustainability plans for each school.

• Expand the availability of Adventist education to qualified students through:

• school planting,

• increasing connected school locations,

• securing additional funding sources for tuition assistance and

• collaboration with neighboring conferences.

• Work on strategic initiatives to create an identifiable presence in our schools’ communities that will

compliment and enhance church ministry.
