Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
- Charles A. Tapp
This year, the Potomac Conference will turn 100, and we plan to pay homage, not only to our past and present, but also, with great anticipation, look to the bright future God has in store for us.
"Moving Beyond the Walls" means that those in the Potomac Conference are no longer content that their churches merely have services inside its walls.
For the first time in three years, Potomac Conference constituents met for in-person
celebrations of camp meetings, a welcomed experience for those longing to come together in a decades-long tradition of spiritual renewal and fellowship.
Most of the doors to our churches have had to close during the pandemic, but in closing our doors, the pandemic has caused a shift in our focus from being content to remain “behind the walls” in a service to going “beyond the walls” in giving service.
Keynote speaker Charles A. Tapp, president of the Potomac Conference and chairman of the Shenandoah Valley Academy (SVA) Board of Trustees, shares a message (excerpted) at the Zirkle Gymnasium Renovation Groundbreaking Ceremony, May 14, 2021:
The Potomac Conference recently celebrated a busy season of ordinations. Since the beginning of the year, five pastors have been ordained to the gospel ministry.
