Adventist Church President Ted N. C. Wilson addresses Annual Council delegates after a crucial vote on Tuesday, October 14. The proposal presented before Annual Council delegates asked if a General Conference Session agenda item should ask the the question–roughly: Should each division executive committee make provision for women’s ordination as they deem appropriate? It passed 243-44 with 3 abstaining. The vote took place on Tuesday, October 14 at the denomination’s world headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, United States.
