Talk unbelief, and you will have unbelief; but talk faith, and you will have faith. According to the seed sown will be the harvest. – Ellen White 

Communication Department | Purpose

Through the dissemination of news and information the Conference Communication Department is dedicated to creating a climate for one to accept Jesus Christ, to developing a public awareness of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and to maintain a positive image which will stand in time of crisis. The department also  serves as a resource to help the local church communication coordinator.


Below are links to some common questions regarding this work.

What is the GSC Today

The GSC Today  is a  Conference newsletter that is  produced by the Communication Department and mailed quarterly to the members. Another responsibility of the Department is to submit monthly articles and features about events that have happened in the Conference to the Southern Union for publication in the Southern Tidings.

What can we do to help

Churches within the Gulf States Conference territory are encouraged to send stories and photos to the Conference to be used in these publications. The articles and stories we receive are powerful tools that we use to keep our members informed, to encourage other,s and to share the good news about the exciting things happening in the local churches and throughout the Conference. To submit any articles or general information, please contact Pastor Nilton Garcia or our Communications Intern Tyler Roberts
