What a wonderful privilege to serve in the capacity of moderator for this great district. I have been blessed by our churches and all our pastor’s to have come to your programs and events that set historical milestones in your ministry. I thank you for accepting some of my ideas I hope will make our district a marvelous association for attracting future leaders and ministry thinkers. As I count down to the close of my tenure, I ask that we look forward to God’s using us as beacons for the region and the state. Let us plan for increased presence in a way that takes our Christ to the lost.
