n July 7, local municipal leaders in Gladstone, Oregon, joined the Oregon Conference staff to celebrate the grand opening of the conference’s new office building. Don Livesay, conference president, spoke of the organization’s purpose to assist churches so more people may be brought to Christ. 

Among the special guests that attended the ribbon cutting and open house were Gladstone mayor Wade Byers, fire chief Frank Grace, and North Pacific Union Conference executive secretary Bryce Pascoe. 

Located in the Glatstone Park Center, the conference’s campmeeting grounds, the new 32,000-square-foot structure has 38 offices, 26 work spaces, and a media studio and library. The office project was completed in 18 months. During the office construction, the OC staff occupied the Holden Convention Center, also on the campmeeting grounds, which saved the conference more than $700,000 in rental fees, reports Gary Mclain, Oregon Conference communication director.
