To Constituents and Friends: 

Welcome to the website of the Lake Region Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. We are a growing conference with nearly 29,000 members. We serve huge metropolitan centers like Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Minnesota. We also serve smaller cities like Pembroke, Jeffersonville, Kenosha, and Mt. Clemens. We service 110 churches and companies in our five state domain.


Our workers include 75 ministers, 33 teachers, 4 Bible instructors, not to mention a dedicated departmental and office staff. We operate 7 elementary schools and one academy (Peterson-Warren), with a total enrollment of approximately 325 students.


Our mission for Lake Region is to preach and teach this gospel of the kingdom in all our cities and towns so that He that shall come will come.




Jerome L. Davis, President








The 2010 LRC Leadership Summit was a tremendous blessing!  That sentiment resonated with every attendee, according to the buzz in the halls of the South Bend Indiana Century Center.  The creativity of Lake Region Conference Departmental Directors was evidenced in the 19 workshops presented throughout the three workshop tracks.  Anchoring the theme for the weekend were four general sessions.  Three presentations were enthusiastically received by attendees as Dr. Clifford Jones expounded on the topic of Vision – its purpose, how to lead like Jesus and finally tapping into the experience of Nehemiah looking at Vision, Venture and Victory.  A fourth was a special presentation by Arthur Maxwell who challenged us to consider observing principles of customer loyalty as a means to keep members engaged in church life.   The supportive features of the conference included special music selections offered by Joyce Smith which often set an inspiring tone for the general meetings.   There is a secular tune from the 80’s that could aptly be applied to the conclusion of this conference, themed “Toward a Clearer Vision” :  “I can see clearly now, the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way… there’s gonna be a bright sunshiny day."  What we learned at the Leadership Summit fit the bill… and we can hardly wait until the next one (November 14-16, 2012).  If I were you, I’d pencil it in my calendar now.
