Fellowship of Retired Adventist Pastors

The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada (SDACC) has initiated the formation of a Fellowship of Retired Adventist Pastors. The aims of this Fellowship are to:

  1. encourage mutual support and fellowship between retired Adventist clergy in Canada;
  2. stay connected by sharing news, information, and recognition from the SDACC, local conferences, and fellow retired colleagues; and
  3. allow the opportunity for retired Adventist pastors in Canada to provide assistance to current pastors and conference administrators as needed.

We invite you to join other pastors in your conference of residence to be a part of this network by completing the form below. Information will be securely held (see privacy disclaimer). Opt-out options will allow you to choose the level of privacy that suits your preferences.
