All around us today we see striking evidence that Jesus is coming soon. That's a reason to rejoice. But it's also a call for us to shake off our lethargy and get to work fulfilling the commission God has given us and preparing to meet Jesus when He returns. In Almost Home, Ted N.C. Wilson, our General Conference president, identifies the spiritual essentials for those who will live through the end times and witness Jesus' return.
Ted N.C. Wilson was elected president of the Seventh-day Adventist world church in July 2010 during the General Conference Session in Atlanta, Georgia, and is the son of former General Conference President Neal C. Wilson and Elinor E. Wilson.
Pastor Wilson began his church career as a pastor in the Greater New York Conference, and has gone on to serve the church as an administrator in positions around the world, including executive secretary of the then Africa-Indian Ocean Division; president of the Euro-Asia Division in Moscow, Russia; and president of the Review and Herald Publishing Association in Hagerstown, Maryland.
He is married to Nancy Louise Vollmer Wilson, and they have three married daughters, Emilie, Elizabeth and Catherine, and five grandchildren.
