On March 2, 2012, Azure Hills Church Senior Pastor John Brunt preached a sermon on bearing witness, in which he called for the ordination of women in the Adventist denomination. Three weeks later, members of the Southeastern California Conference Executive Committee voted to ordain women. Brunt announced the historic vote to the Azure Hills congregation, eliciting both tears and cheers.
