Road to the GC (Part 1) — Adventist Voices

This week we kick off a new series focused on the next General Conference Session. My guests are Bonnie Dwyer, editor of Spectrum, and Raymond Dabrowski, longtime director of communication for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the current director of communication for the Rocky Mountain Conference.

In this rambling conversation focusing on media at the GC Session, Ray shares his insider perspective managing church messaging and Bonnie discusses what she finds important for reporting the news.

As I understand it less than 7% of the delegates at the 2015 GC session were younger than 40 years old.
If this is true, the church must immediately make an adjustment to increase the input from our younger members!
My two children, both around 40 years old at the time, attended the 2015 session.They left with some very negative impressions due to some behavior at the GC. Thank God they continue to be active members in the church. However, it seems that many young people have left the church due to the 2015 session.
