About the Northern Conference
The 24th Transvaal Conference Business Session met, for what was to be the last time, on the 3rd November 2013, as the delegates voted overwhelmingly to approve the Executive Committee’s recommendation of a name change from the Transvaal Conference to the Northern Conference.
The Northern Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists is located in the economic hub of South Africa, on the outskirts of Johannesburg.
It has a Church Membership of a little more than 16 700. There are about 121 congregational service points with 54 as pastoral staff. It is a multi-cultural conference that serves a wide diversity of peoples across Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga & the North West Province.
It has a strong tradition of resource development. It’s mission target areas are highly industrialised and secularised for the most part. It’s focus is to empower members to become disciple makers, using tools such as the “The Empowered Church” to mobilise churches into a cycle of evangelism that will reap a greater harvest.
Evangelism has been a strong priority in many areas. Of late DVD’s bearing the gospel message have become very effective in sowing the Gospel Seed.
