Welcome our newest member to the Administration team here at the Oregon Conference. Dan Linrud, D.Min, Assistant to the President. Linrud was born and raised in the Northwest, but most recently comes to us from Ontario Conference in Canada where he was the Executive Secretary. Linrud also served in the Ontario Conference in such roles as pastor and administrator for the past 16 years. Previous to that he served as a pastor in the Washington Conference for 10 years.
He is a 5th generation Seventh-day Adventist and married to a pastors daughter, Verlaine, who is an elementary school teacher. One of Dan’s greatest joys is connecting with God and others in transformational relationships. The emphasis on his doctoral studies was the spiritual transformation through small groups. The Linrud’s have two young adult daughters, Shalaine and Anelise.
Help Provide Midwest Tornado Relief
On Sunday, November 17, dozens of tornadoes passed through eight Midwest states destroying and damaging hundreds of homes and killing eight people. Illinois and Indiana were hit the hardest. A head elder from Peoria, Illinois, church stated that two Adventist families’ homes were totally destroyed and another damaged. No one was injured. The local Adventist Community Services Disaster Response (ACS DR) personnel are conducting needs assessments and preparing to assist in relief efforts. Pray for the thousands of individuals who have been affected by and will be responding to this tragedy and consider giving a financial donation through ACS to support disaster response efforts. To donate, visit www.communityservices.org, call 1-800-381-7171, or make checks payable to ACS and mail to: 12501 Old Columbia Pike, Silver Spring, MD 20904. You can also place your donation in a tithe envelope marked “ACS Disaster Response”
