The Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America (NAD) announced it has elected Gordon Pifher as the vice president for media to be based at it’s Silver Spring, MD headquarters.
As vice president for media, Pifher will be primarily responsible for developing and implementing a media ministry strategy for all of the Church’s media ministries across a territory that includes the United States, Canada, Bermuda, Guam, and Micronesia.
“We are excited about Gordon joining our leadership team,” said Daniel J. Jackson, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America. “I’ve known Gordon for many years and I know that his strengths in leadership and knowledge of media, along with his passion for sharing God’s love and compassion will only strengthen the mission of the church.”
Pifher will also work closely with the Adventist Church’s Hope Channel to develop new, regionally-contextualized programming. He will also coordinate the seven original media ministries in North America to develop new approaches for urban center outreach programming.
“I am honored to be given this opportunity to serve the church in this vital role,” said Pifher. “I look forward to working in partnership with all the media ministries in our territory to explore new ways in which we can further the ministry of the church to serve.”
Pifher is currently serving as director of Stewardship, Leadership, and Creative Ministries for the regional headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the North Pacific. Previously he served as president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in British Columbia, Canada.
