With pavement going down, Upper Columbia Conference is days away from moving to our new office. We will be moving from our temporary office in Spokane Valley, back to our newly rebuilt office complex on Grove Road in Spokane the week of May 23, 2011.
During the move, phone and email service will continue to function. The only difference is our offices will be spread between two buildings for a few days. Also, the ABC will be closed May 25-30. It will reopen with expanded inventory in a brand-new retail space on May 31.
The move follows a two-year reconstruction project to replace offices that burned in December of 2008.
Washington Conference Office of Education is gearing up for a summer of transitions.
Don Klinger, Idaho Conference vice president for administration, confirms David Prest Jr. has accepted the invitation of the conference executive committee to become the new conference president. Prest, who currently directs ministerial and trust service departments for the Montana Conference, has not yet announced a date for his transition to Idaho. He acknowledges his family will miss their friends and colleagues in Montana. “It had been a privilege to serve the Lord and His people during the past ten years in the Montana Conference,” says Prest. “My family and I have been truly blessed. As we begin a new chapter in the story of the Idaho Conference, I ask for your prayers and support as we move forward together in Jesus Christ.” The conference constituency session is scheduled for May 22. Delegates to the session will also address the replacement of Harold Dixon, who plans to retire as vice president for finance.
