Byron Dulan began his new role in January of 2018 as the North Pacific Union Conference (NPUC) vice president for regional affairs. Dulan served the Washington Conference as regional affairs director for nine years in several capacities as the director of Adventist Community Services, disaster response, and personal ministries.

Dulan’s responsibilities include coordination of human relations, urban ministries and community service, disaster preparedness and response, and prison ministries. In his main function as vice president for regional affairs, he will support the efforts of local conference leaders to enhance regional ministry within the Northwest. Dulan will also serve on the NPUC administrative committee, president’s council and executive committee. In addition, he will chair the NPUC regional advisory committee, serve as co-chair of the West Coast Black Caucus, and be the liaison for regional ministry to the NPUC youth, ministerial and evangelism departments.

Dulan graduated from California State University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, then obtained his Master of Arts in religion from Loma Linda University in California. He is an ordained minister, with pastoral experience in Southern California and more than a decade as pastor of the Maranatha and Lighthouse Christian Fellowship churches in Washington. He has directed student employment and housing for Pacific Union College and been an associate youth director for Southern California Conference. Before his current role, he served as regional affairs director for the Washington Conference for nine years.

Spiritual life, evangelism, community service and urban development are all at the core of Byron Dulan’s passion within the Adventist mission. He has been active through the years on both church committees and community-related organizations.

We want to express our gratitude for his dedication, commitment, and leadership skills as Adventist Community Services Director of Washington Conference and we’re looking forward to working with his new responsibilities.
