Addition of Stan Jensen to SDACC Team

News March 27, 2012
The administration of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada is pleased to announce the addition of Stan Jensen to their team. Stan joins the team as the director of communications for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada (SDACC) and as editor of the Canadian Adventist Messenger. Born in Alberta, Stan has served for the past 10 years as communications director of the British Columbia Conference. In addition to his work in British Columbia, he has served as director of Trust Services, ABC manager in Ontario and Southern California, and ABC assistant manager in Alberta. In these several capacities, Stan has assisted every conference and mission in Canada. He has made long-lasting friendships through his travels, which will contribute to the continuing development of the Messenger and the role that it plays for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada.

Stan has developed and implemented several strategies for sharing church news, inspirational and doctrinal material, both inside the church and for the public. In January 2012, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) announced that it has approved the Adventist Church’s Hope Channel for broadcast on cable TV throughout Canada as a result of Stan’s vigilance. He has also played an important role in the partnership between Voice of Adventist Radio (VOAR) and the repeaters in British Columbia.

The SDACC Board of Directors has taken action to create the position of communications director for the Church in Canada. In doing so, the Board and church leadership recognize the significant need to provide many resources to share our faith and news of Adventism throughout Canada. Stan’s involvement with broadcast media and electronic means of communication make him an ideal person to lead this area of the church’s ministry. Stan plans to build on the excellent and award-winning foundation that has been laid by those who have served the church previously as editors of the Messenger. We welcome him as he returns to Oshawa to take on this important ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada.
