Welcome to the Lake Union Headquarters

of the Seventh-day Adventist Church for the states surrounding Lake Michigan.

We serve huge metropolitan centers like Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis and Milwaukee, but we also feel close to home in small cities and villages scattered throughout our mostly farmland territory. We serve almost 90,000 members in nearly 560 churches and companies in five local conferences. We are home to the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary on the campus of Andrews University, AdventHealth Great Lakes facilities in Illinois and Wisconsin, as well as approximately 79 academies and elementary schools.

“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:14-16, The Message).
