General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
It is the purpose of this paper to examine some aspects of the initial organization of the church and also the reorganization of the church some forty years later. The shape of denominational structures will be briefly described, followed by an examination of the purpose for organization, the impact of organization on the missionary expansion of the church, and the role played by Ellen White and others in the process.
