The Southeastern Conference Technology department recently hosted the annual fall meeting of the North American Division Technology Standards Committee (TSC), September 19 -21.
During this meeting the group voted to officially adopt Southeastern’s model for Technology Ministries and implement it division wide.
Nancy Lamoreaux, NAD Director of Technology stated: “Southeastern has changed the outlook of technology division wide. We, technology professionals, have a vital role to play in the spreading of gospel.”
NAD Treasurer Juan Prestol, Chairmen of TSC, is excited to see the new direction that the group is taking. He stated: “Technology professionals play a vital role in the work. Without you, the church can’t function.”
The fall meeting marked the first time that TSC was held at a regional conference office.
Southeastern hosted the meeting as a result of a presentation on Technology Ministries that was given by Robert Henley, director of Technology Ministries at Southeastern, during the Spring Meeting of TSC, which was held in San Antonio, TX. Southeastern launched Technology Ministries in 2000.
The group also took a tour of the Patmos Chapel SDA church, which is one of the model technology churches in the Southeastern Conference.
TSC is comprised of the technology directors from every union, local conference and Adventist institution in the North American Division.
This group meets twice a year, and is responsible for setting technology policies and trends that are implemented throughout the North American Division.
