A Bit About the SR Speaker:


Currently Ministerial Director for Mid-America Union, Pastor Mic Thurber most recently served as the Senior Pastor at the Keene SDA Church on the campus of Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, TX, for almost 11 years.  He has also been Senior Pastor of the Pacific Union College SDA Church, the Calimesa SDA Church near Loma Linda, CA, and the San Diego Central SDA Church (now named the Tierrasanta SDA Church). Most of his pastoral work has been on college campuses, and has a special appreciation for the energy, talent, and potential for the young men and women of our church.


He has also served as conference Ministerial Director in the Southeastern California Conference, as well as Bible and Music teacher at Sunnydale Academy, Centralia, MO, and at his alma mater, Mt Pisgah Academy, in Candler, NC.


In addition to preaching Jesus and His marvelous grace, Pastor Mic's passions are encouraging and supporting other pastors, photography, reading, and his family. Jana, his wife and best friend of 40 years, worked with Mic on staff as an associate pastor at the Keene Church for 11 years. Prior to moving to Keene, she was a trust officer for Pacific Union College, and paralegal/office manager at the Office of Legal Counsel at Loma Linda University before that. She is currently working on her Masters in Pastoral Ministry at Andrews University.


Mic and Jana and 3 grown children: Gina, living in Akron, OH; Darrin, who is a pastor in the Ohio Conference; and Kaylin, who just graduated from Union College this spring. Darrin is married to Cristine Orillosa, who have given Mic and Jana their first two grandchildren – Aryia and Amelia. Gina is married to Jay Dettore, who had Emma Jane, their first child, on May 11th, 2015.
