Caleb Durant is the new communication director for the Iowa-Missouri Conference as of Aug. 1, 2023.

Durant graduated from Southwestern Adventist University with a BS in communication. While a student, he worked part-time for three years with Southwestern’s media team. After graduation he became the university’s Media Services manager for two years before accepting the call this summer to move to Des Moines with his wife Cashmere.

“God always has a plan and a purpose for our lives, and I feel He called me to this conference for a reason,” said Durant. He also credits God with leading him to Southwestern where he gained the experience to prepare him for this position.

Durant says his experience in church work has been all about some form of communication, from audio-visual, to going door to door in literature ministry work, to web design, to photography, to video production, to social media. “I pray that everyone I meet knows they are important, that there is always a reason that they meet someone, and that every story and divine appointment is worthy of sharing,” Durant stated. 

“I am humbled and honored to step through this new door that God has opened for me to be the communication director at the Iowa-Missouri Conference,” he added. “I look forward to how He will work in the Iowa-Missouri conference through me, and I pray to God that I may be of service to every member and be able to communicate their story and create connections that will last forever till Jesus comes again.”
