What a joy it is to serve you during this season of ministry. I love KY and love the ministry of the church of God in KY. Kentucky is the place that Fran and I call our ministry home as we began serving in Louisville in our first pastorate and will be the place where we conclude our ministry. We are humbled at what God has done in our lives over these years.
It has been stated that together we can do more. This is so true! It is to this end that several years ago a visioning task force presented a vision that will help us develop ministries and opportunities that will impact lives positively with the love and hope found in Christ. C3 is that vision, CONNECTING, CARING, CREATING. Across our state we see portions of this vision being lived out through district rallies, youth camps, CWC events, youth convention and unity services. The question now is are there other opportunities to discover and explore? I believe there is. It will be my responsibility to help our ministry team discover new avenues that will enable us to grow deeper in accomplishing this vision.
Thank you to all of you who have prayed for our grandson Jonah Todd. His surgery was successful and he is a very active 11 month year old. I can hardly believe that he had open heart surgery on a Friday and was home on Monday. God has been so very faithful! Thank you to many of your who have sent cards and financial help to his family. Jonathan and Beth are very humbled by your display of love. In August they will begin a very taxing time of ministry visiting may congregations and ministry meetings. They are scheduled to return to Brazil in January or February.
Finally, I hope you enjoy our new website design. It is still a work in progress. Going forward we will develop each ministry team’s page with help from the team and we are planning to have online registration and payment for all events beginning with our State Youth Convention in November. Please be patient with us in developmental stage.
It is my joy to know you and serve you.
