Calexico Mission School Thrives on California-Mexico Border. Calexico Mission School, part of the Southeastern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventist school system, thrives on the California-Mexico border. The school was built 80 years ago by Adventists who saw the border as a mission field for doing God’s work. Its logo includes both the U.S. and Mexican flags. Of the school’s roughly 300 students, about 85% are Mexican citizens.

One of the surprisingly hot button topics at the Spring Meeting of the General Conference Executive Committee was the unveiling of a new Adventist branding identity. The Seventh-day Adventist symbol, which is owned by the General Conference Corporation and may only be used by official church entities, remains unchanged. The current symbol has been in use since 1997. The official font and design guidelines, however, have undergone extensive modifications.

The last item on the agenda for day one of Spring Meeting was a “Statement on Transgenderism.” The statement, crafted by the Biblical Research Institute (BRI), a General Conference entity, has been in the works for several years. A previous version of the statement was set to be voted on during last fall’s Annual Council, but dissension among the executive committee led BRI to revise the statement and re-present it at Spring Meeting.
