Who is Ted Wilson?

Ted N.C. Wilson was elected as president of the Seventh-day Adventist world church in July 2010 during the General Conference Session in Atlanta, US.

Born in Takoma Park, Maryland on May 10, 1950, the son of former Adventist world church President Neal C. Wilson and Elinor E. Wilson, Wilson spent part of his childhood in Egypt.

He began his church career as a pastor in 1974 in the Greater New York Conference. He married Nancy Louise Vollmer Wilson in 1975. The couple has three daughters and 10 grandchildren.

Wilson served as the assistant director and then director of Metropolitan Ministries in New York from 1976 to 1981. He served in the then Africa-Indian Ocean Division, based in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, until 1990 as a departmental director and later as executive secretary.

Following his post in West Africa, Wilson served for two years at the Adventist world church’s world headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, US, as an associate secretary. He served as the president of the church’s Euro Asia-Division in Moscow, Russia from 1992 to 1996.

Pastor Wilson returned to the US to serve as president of the Review and Herald Publishing Association in Hagerstown, Maryland until his election as an Adventist world church vice-president in 2000.

An ordained minister, Wilson holds a doctor of philosophy degree in religious education from New York University, a master of divinity degree from Andrews University, and a Master of Science degree in public health from the Loma Linda University School of Public Health. In addition to English, he speaks French and some Russian.

So the Catholics call their leader Pope while SDA members call their leader president,different names but the same duties and the same respect. Welcome Mr president and your coming to Nyasaland its an eye opener to us.

So the SDA has it’s own “Pope” after all? Except that this one appears to be from a royal family considering his father was a “Pope” as well.

Where do you take this from? Is Pope surname or title?
