The president’s office assists in fostering the collective ministry and mission of the Seventh-day Adventist church in the Southern Union Conference. Membership growth, evangelism, church planting, tithe and funding the mission, literature evangelism, K-16 Adventist education, healthcare ministry, global mission — all these and more are supported and reported to the constituency by the president, who also thrives on vehemently engaging and conducting evangelistic meetings.

Through his membership on numerous boards and committees in the North American Division and the General Conference, the president interfaces with institutions such as Southern Adventist University, Oakwood University, AdventHealth, AdventHealth University and Loma Linda University, as well as other mission outreach entities of the Seventh-day Adventist church.
