Friendly Service Announcement to the Chinese Online Casino That's Been Spamming My Blog

Delbert W. Baker, Ph.D.

Delbert Baker has way too much going on to mention all of his accomplishments here. He is a prolific writer, a minister, and currently serves as president of Oakwood University. That's right, University. It's not Oakwood College anymore. 

Baker has done as much as or more than any other Adventist to promote racial and ethnic unity amid Adventism's rich cultural diversity. For more biographical information, visit Dr. Baker's Wikipedia page.

Jay Gallimore

Jay Gallimore is the president of the Michigan Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. According to the Michigan Conference website, "The president is the spiritual leader of those in ministry and overseer of all the churches."

Gallimore likes evangelism. A lot. He is a former evangelist himself (though he still does evangelistic meetings), and he works with David Asscherick's ARISE Institute and Louis Torres's Mission College of Evangelism. By "works with" I mean hires people from the field schools of evangelism to work in the Michigan Conference.
