Amanda N. Hawley (haw-lee) is currently pastoring the Breath of Life Fellowship SDA Church in Stamford, CT. She has a passion for genuine worship, spiritual and personal growth, and healthy relationships.
Amanda is a product of Christian education; attending Adventist elementary and junior high schools. She is also a proud graduate of Oakwood University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. Before accepting God’s call to pastoral ministry, Amanda was pursuing a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology at Argosy University in Chicago, IL. This training in psychology greatly compliments her ministry training. She later graduated from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University with a Master of Divinity degree. Her goal is to combine her knowledge of mental and behavioral health with that of the Bible and theology to promote spiritual, personal, and relational wholeness.
In her free time Amanda enjoys painting, crafting, baking, singing, cooking…pretty much any form of artistic expression. She loves to travel and spend time with family and friends. It is her desire to serve the Lord with all her heart, mind, soul and strength. Amanda knows God has called her “…to bear witness of the Light [of Jesus Christ], that all through her might believe.” (John 1:7)
Daniel Lamartine Honoré was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic as the second of three children born to Lamartine and Celia Honoré. His father was Haitian and his mother Dominican. A pastor and a teacher, both parents served the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The required frequent moves resulted in Daniel growing up in the Dominican Republic, Martinique, Quebec, Massachusetts and New York. The children thus became fluent in Spanish, French and English. From a tender age he sensed the call to ministry. He observed keenly as his father pastored the Temple Salem and Hebron French Congregations. His study of history, particularly the United States civil rights movement, convinced him that preparing for the world to come, did not preclude him from working to improve the lot of the poor and oppressed in the present world. He earned a B.A. degree in Theology from Columbia Union College and B.A. degree in History from Southern Adventist.
On June 10, 2012, he was elected to serve as President of the Northeastern Conference and he has been serving since.
Preacher, musician, and civic leader, Pastor Keith S. Goodman, Sr. is a dedicated servant of Christ and His church. A native of the state of Oklahoma, Goodman earned his B.A. degree from Oakwood College in 1996 and attended the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University from 1996 to 1998.
From 1996 to 1998, Pastor Goodman served as an intern at Chicago’s Stratford Memorial Seventh-day Adventist Church under the tutelage of Dr. Charles D. Joseph, Sr. In January 1999, Goodman joined the North Philadelphia Seventh-day Adventist Church as the assistant pastor to Elder William E. Hall, Sr. From December 1999 to January 2006, Goodman served as pastor of the Macedonia Seventh-day Adventist Church in Chester, Pennsylvania. In February 2006, he was called again to serve the North Philadelphia Seventh-day Adventist Church, this time as the senior pastor. And in October 2020, Pastor Goodman became the pastor of the Ephesus Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Pastor Goodman is married to Evelyn Goodman, who is herself a gifted singer and anointed preacher of righteousness. They have three children, Keith Spencer, Jr., Charles Winston, and Kaelyn Elizabeth.
Pastor René Cannon is from Lexington, KY, and before being installed as pastor of the Bethany SDA Church, he had experience serving as an Associate Pastor in Chicago, IL and as a Youth Pastor in New Orleans, LA. Pastor Cannon holds a Masters of Divinity from Andrews University and a Masters of Science in Occupational Safety & Management from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Pastor Cannon believes the Lord has gifted him with an ability to present the Gospel in a clear way, and he believes that he is called to help others see their need for Jesus and to prayerfully help them in the facilitation of the process.
A graduate of Occidental College in Los Angeles, California, the Yale Divinity School, where she earned her M.Div, and United Theological Seminary, where she studied under the late Rev. Dr. Samuel DeWitt Proctor and the Rev. Dr. Charles Booth.
Dr. Smith was the pastor of Advent United Church of Christ in Columbus, Ohio, for 22 years. She recently worked with the SpiritHouse Project, under the direction of Ruby Sales, studying the incidence of extrajudicial murders involving black people and law enforcement agencies since 2007, and served as the Gordon G. Cosby Seasoned Voices Fellow.
As a former member of the Board of Trustees of the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, Inc., she participated in and was head commissioner of hearings conducted to study the effects of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on urban populations.
Dr. Smith is the author of several books; her most recent book was “The Book of Jeremiah: The Life and Ministry of Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.” Her other books include, “Crazy Faith: Ordinary People; Extraordinary Lives,” “Forgive WHO?” and “From Calvary to Victory.” I also authored a children’s book, “Carla and Annie.” In addition to establishing a non profit, “Crazy Faith Ministries,” she is also the authorized biographer of the Rev.

Dr. MyRon Edmonds is a second generation pastor, community activist and leadership consultant in the Edmonds’ family. Dr. Edmonds day job is that of being the proud pastor of the historic Grace Community Seventh-day Adventist Church (formerly Glenville Seventh-day Adventist Church). His pastoral career has spanned eighteen years.
Under Dr. Edmonds visionary and innovative leadership, Grace Community SDA Church has transformed from a traditional church to a community powerhouse, fighting for justice, lifting the oppressed and setting captives free spiritually, physically and financially. Dr. Edmonds believes that the church is not a building but a people on a mission committed to help as many people as possible experience God’s grace before Jesus returns. In 2012 God gave him a vision to buy a former K-Mart building in Euclid, OH and build a 7 day a week multi-ministry complex that houses several community outreach ministries for families as well as a 9-12 Leadership and Technology high school purposed to help stop the school to prison pipeline. He believes if you build a school you can close a prison. As a result of this initiative, Grace Community broke ground on this state of the art in November of 2018.
Pastor Edmonds is regarded as one of the most fearless, transparent leaders of his generation. He is a highly sought after speaker who travels the world helping to revitalize dying churches, develop leaders and strengthen families.
He has a Masters of Divinity and a Doctorate of Ministry Degree from Andrews Theological Seminary with a concentration in Family Ministries & Discipleship. His dissertation focuses on how to move marginalized black males to spiritual leaders in the home and in the community. He is a devoted husband to his high school sweetheart Dr. Shaneé Edmonds, a dentist, and proud father to his teenage daughter Teylor and teenage son Camden. He is also the author of the nationally acclaimed book, 40 Days to Life Changing Family Worship and his latest book The Frustrated Leader. He loves sports, reading, cooking and laughing at anything that’s funny.
We sinned and ruined everything that God made. The New Earth is the result of God cleaning up the mess of sin and restoring creation. We will finally get to live in the world He intended for us. This time, without the possibility of sin ruining it ever again!
We look forward to the New Earth because it is the end of the Great Controversy—it is the end of sin. It is also the restoration of God’s perfect original plan for us. It is the fulfillment of His covenant promise of salvation.
There is hope and salvation for suffering mankind through Jesus and He promises,
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me, that you also may be where I am” (John 14:1-3).
The real prize is not a city of gold, but a face-to-face relationship with God. Living in paradise will just be icing on the cake! Paul says we can’t even imagine the wonderful things that God has planned for us (1 Corinthians 2:9).
