The 61st General Conference Session Nominating Committee elected Elder Roger Caderma as the president of the Southern Asia-Pacific Division, replacing Elder Saw Samuel, who was recently elected as one of the associate secretaries of the General Conference.
Early in Caderma's ministry, God called him to be a soldier for Christ. He pursued theology at Mountain View College in the Philippines in 1984. He earned a master’s degree in public health from Adventist International Institute for Advanced Studies (AIIAS) in 1999. He then received his certificate as a Trust Services and Planned Giving officer in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA, in 2005.
Since he was called to ministry in 1988, Elder Caderma has served as a district pastor, church pastor, department director, president of the South Philippine Union Conference, and currently as the vice president of the Southern Asia-Pacific Division for NDR-IEL. Caderma is married to Danita. Both are enthusiastically serving God in different responsibilities He has given them.
