The General Conference (GC) coordinates the global ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a body set up under the belief that no man should be governed by the judgment of another, and any decision should be made by an assembly. The General Conference is responsible for the spiritual and developmental plans of the church around the world.
The Seventh-Day Adventist Church church, which owns and operates Loma Linda University, also supports churches, academic and health care organizations throughout the world. The Global Health Institute collaborates with the SDA church to support its global outreach mission.
World Affairs Council of Inland Southern California hosts events and resources that simulate a deeper understanding of global issues and highlight current affairs, foreign policy, trends, culture, and discussions with experts and leaders in government, journalism, health, foreign services, and the environment.
