Folkenberg Turns Down GC Position

Bob Folkenberg, Jr.

Bob Folkenberg, Jr. will continue serving as Upper Columbia Conference's president. Following his June 27 election as associate secretary for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Folkenberg and his family spent time praying and considering the call to serve the world church.

In a decision, announced June 28, Folkenberg said he feels called to continue in his current post."We feel God has called us to Upper Columbia Conference right now and we look forward to continuing to serve and work along side the wonderful UCC family," said Folkenberg.

Folkenberg has been UCC president since March, 2009.
