  • Mourning the Loss of Mandie Taylor-Radmehr

    Announced by Jacquie Biloff on Nov 03 2015

    It is with deepest sorrow that Dakota Conference and Dakota Adventist Academy share the news of the passing of Mandie Taylor-Radmehr. Our hearts are heavy with sadness at the news of her unexpected death due to medical causes. The family appreciates your respect of their privacy in this matter.

    Mandie served as the assistant cafeteria director and assisted in the administrative office. More than that, Mandie connected with the students as a friend and mentor. Please join us in lifting up Mandie’s family, as well as our students and staff, in prayer as we grieve.

    An intimate supper and memorial with family, students, and staff will be held at the Academy Wednesday evening, November 4, 2015. Following the memorial, 7-layer bars, henceforth and forever after called Mandie Bars, will be served in her memory.

    We look forward to our reunion with Mandie in heaven, and are grateful for the hope we have in Christ’s soon coming.   

    Sympathy cards may be sent to the Academy for forwarding on to the family. 

  • Who Are Adventists?

    Announced by Jacquie Biloff on Nov 01 2015

    Today the NAD (North American Division), with the cooperation of the GC (General Conference) Communication Deptartment, launched a new micro website, The purpose of this site is to answer some of the questions that are coming out about the Adventist church in the light of the media attention being given to the presidential campaign of Dr. Ben Carson. This interest was intensely amplified last weekend when Donald Trump, asked his famous question “Who are Seventh-day Adventists?”.
