Who We Are, How We Serve

The Columbia Union Conference coordinates the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s work in the Mid-Atlantic United States, where 145,000 members worship in 800 congregations. We provide administrative support to eight conferences, two healthcare networks, 81 elementary and secondary schools, a liberal arts university, a health sciences college, a dozen community services centers, six book and health food stores and a radio station.

Mission Values Priorities

We Believe

God is love, power, and splendor—and God is a mystery. His ways are far beyond us, but He still reaches out to us. God is infinite yet intimate, three yet one,
all-knowing yet all-forgiving.

They have been providing resources and education to individuals, churches and organizations from their office in Reading, Pa., since 2002. Late this spring they will move their office to the Pennsylvania Conference's Blue Mountain Academy (BMA) in Hamburg, Pa., where AWHN will provide various health ministry training events, wellness camps and conferences, while offering attendees affordable overnight lodging and meals.
