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.

"Overseer"? That has a negative connotation for me--like the overseer of a plantation or the overseer of the Hebrew slaves in Egypt.

Ya...It's a word I probably wouldn't pick right away, but that's why I don't work for the Michigan Conference, I guess. Among other reasons. Many of them. Did I mention I can't tolerate weather cooler than 50 degrees?

Why are you so negative? The Michigan conference is doing a lot better conferences in a lot of areas.

We should hold up the hands of those that are doing excellent work, and not mock them.

Tom, how do you define "better"? Financial success is such a narrow measure.

Mr. Gallimore, tear down that wall--of divisiveness that you seem to bring to every topic! Please be more of a shepherd and less of an Overseer.

The Michigan conference is circling the drain. School and church attendance is plummeting. Morale is non-existent. The flame for God's love is being dowsed with torrents of legalism, cultish mentality and divisiveness from the top.
