Welcome to our Conference!
Welcome to the web home of the Idaho Conference. It is our hope that you will catch a vision of what God is doing in our part of this world.   We are the headquarters for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Southern Idaho and Eastern Oregon.

From farming to white water sports, from skiing to technology—the communities and people of Idaho and Oregon have a lot to offer. From our headquarters in Boise, Idaho, we provide resources and leadership for ministry to more than 6,500 members in our 51 congregations across the conference.  

We operate 10 elementary schools and Gem State Adventist Academy, a boarding and community high school, which educate many of our children and their friends in the community. Camp Ida–Haven, our year–round camp located on Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho, provides a fun, Christ–centered summer camp program to several hundred children. Churches, families, and other groups enjoy the scenic, retreat setting the rest of the year.  

Explore our site – find a place to visit, a place to call home. It is our hope and prayer that wherever you go, you will see Jesus shining through each of us.

Our Mission

Raise up people across Southern Idaho and Eastern Oregon who are so in love with Jesus that they share the fullness of His love as expressed in the Three Angels’ messages of Revelation 14. 

Our Vision
In the next 3 – 5 years move the focus of the Idaho Conference from a top-down leadership style to a cutting-edge, equipping, lay-driven, pastor-coached conference that is growing in personal spirituality and soul winning, with financial stability to fund mission and ministry.

(Mission and Vision were adopted by the Idaho Conference Board of Directors in April 2015 and was presented to the delegates at the May 2015 constituency session)

Daily Devotional

If the Son Sets You Free

Jesus gets low in the dirt. He stoops to wash feet. You can't pick up a child while standing straight--you have to stoop low to catch kids in your arms. The Savior stoops down to scoop some mud for the eyes of a boy blind from birth. He stoops to write in the dirt. No one knows what Jesus wrote, but the impact of it speaks volumes. Common knowledge tells us that people sharply accuse others of the very things they do in secret. If this is any indication of human behavior, we can imagine that while Jesus writes, the rocks drop, and the saints leave the courtyard like a bunch of sinners who have some thinking to do. Jesus stoops to write in the dirt until everyone is gone--then He straightens up. . . .

Judgment is between you and God. No crowds. No outside opinions. No committees. Jesus clears this court to give the woman the good news by asking her an easy question: "Where are your accusers?" The answer is obvious, but the meaning is monumental! "Has no one condemned you?" She was guilty. She was an adulteress. The only way Jesus could let her go is if someone else paid and someone else behaved righteously for her. The only one who had the right to condemn her straightens up and sets her free.
