Seventh-day Adventist GC Loma Linda Office has moved from the School of Medicine Alumni Association building to the Loma Linda University Health's Global Health Institute -- on campus. The General Conference Loma Linda Office serves Global Mission Appointees: including Deferred Mission Appointee (DMA) and Global Service Awardee (GSA) and GC retirees.
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.
Since Loma Linda’s inception 113 years ago, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists has been an active presence on our campus. Our intent is to fully support our church in their interests on campus at the Global Health Institute and maintain the close working relationships we have enjoyed for over a century.
