Welcome to the Conference Headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church for the state of Indiana. We are a Christian faith community, which bases its hope and future in Jesus Christ. Our administration and staff provide strategic leadership, support services and resources to more than 81 congregations and 14 schools within Indiana to achieve our shared vision of proclaiming Christ, nurturing believers and serving humanity. Thank you for stopping by.
Summer Ministries in Indiana
God is blessing our ministry at Timber Ridge Camp! Our staff team is well into their second week. With an attendance of 40 at Blind camp, over 50 single moms with their children and 76 for Cub Camp, it’s been a busy summer so far! At blind camp, two campers heard the Holy Spirit's voice and made a decision to be baptized!
This summer God is speaking to the hearts of our staff as well. Three staff members have decided to be either baptized or re-baptized. Summer camp ministry is not just for campers!
Please pray for our Friday night ministry. This is the time we ask campers to give their hearts to Jesus, make a decision for baptism or re-dedicate their lives to Jesus. Thanks for your prayers and financial support for TRC! (Charlie Thompson)

Pastor Matt Hasty has been working with 21 students this summer as they deliver Christian literature to the homes of our Hoosier friends. During June they have been distributing God’s seeds of truth to homes in Hartford City, La Porte, Markle, Marion, and South Bend. In the month of July these students will be serving in the Indianapolis area. Some students will pursue satellite locations in Evansville, Lafayette, and Muncie, to conclude the summer.
One lady and her nephew plan to visit our local church this coming Sabbath. Pray for our students making calls on the homes of our people this summer in Indiana. They finish up their summer with an iShare Rally at Great Lakes Adventist Academy the last of July. (Matt Hasty)

FM Radio Station
Terre Haute’s radio station is up and running with 3ABN broadcasting. Please keep the station in prayer for optimal equipment operation and an extended footprint across west central Indiana.
Whether you are near or far from these summer opportunities for ministry in Indiana, please join us in person and/or prayer that these ministries will be successful in advancing God’s kingdom.
We want to faithfully focus upon the vision of our Big Five+ so that our Saviour can state, “Well done, good and faithful servant…Enter into the joy of your lord” (Matt 25:21).
