District Superintendent Weekly Update

October 18, 2018

Wesleyan Pastor-Leaders,

In my own devotional reading I’m reading Galatians and in chapter 5:1 there is a wonderful truth, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free……” Are you free? Please take some time and consider the question. If you discover that you need help in this area I am certainly here for you.

The church year will soon be at the half way point. By November 15th your local church Mid-year Report will be due to my desk. Also, second quarter reports will be due from Developing Churches at that same time. Please watch for the info in your inbox; the Captain will get that to you very soon. Thank you for taking care of those necessary administrative matters.

Last Sunday found Bobby and Lisa in Parkersburg, WV at Davis Memorial (David Jones) and at Homeland’s, The Gathering (Melody Smith). Pastor David is leading Davis to growth while Pastor Melody is ministering exponentially in a very tough part of Parkersburg. We rejoice with both sister churches!!!! ___ Becky and I were in Martinsville. I want to share a couple other reports from last Lord’s Day as well. Paden City Wesleyan (Mark Tennant), along the Ohio River, had a wonderful weekend with their students and baptizing two believers! That church not many years ago was running in the 20’s; last Sunday they were at 55. PRAISE THE LORD!! Crosspoint (John Williamson) has added an overflow area at their Timberlake Campus for 100 more people; every chair was filled on Sunday!! The downtown campus (Theo Griffin) is growing; I believe they’re having parking space issues (not enough). What great problems to have!! Jordantown Wesleyan (Matt Reynolds) stepped out and had a 3 day tent meeting. In spite of the cool temps and drops of rain the people turned out; the weekend was very worthwhile.  Vienna Wes (Russell Wooten) is experiencing a renewal that includes additional men and women making their way to the fellowship. The Lord is helping us, Shenandoah!!!
Have you had the opportunity to check out the resource page on the denominational website? Don’t forget that the resources are there for you. Also, if you have created resources that work well at your local church please share them with HQ so others can benefit too. Advent helps are now available……

Please allow me to share an El Salvador need. We are coming up short financially on a monthly basis; I’m referencing the monies needed to finance the national work. Some of you support the work every month for which I am totally grateful. THANK YOU! If we could raise some additional monthly dollars it would truly help. IF the church you serve isn’t contributing to El Salvador monthly, would you consider doing so? If we had an additional 10 local churches that would give $25 a month that would be huge. We send our gifts through Global Partners with the code WM05-0204; that is for National Ministry Shares. I really appreciate anything that you can do to help the growing work. Blessings!!!

This Week’s Prayer Needs:
1. Rev. Windy Walton – continues rehab and is starting to go crazy; that’s a sign she’s getting better. 😊
2. Mrs. Joyce Rodriguez – is weak and under doctors care as she works to get well.
3. Mrs. Jenny Stephens – deals with significant physical complications; is in pain daily.
4. Rev. Roy Rogers – waiting on open heart surgery next month at Cleveland Clinic.
5. Church Multiplication- we have a lot of zip codes to go after……
6.  Me – I want and need the Spirit’s help!!!

Have a great rest of the week.
Pastor Greg

PS   I appreciate YOU during this month of Pastor Appreciation….. and will in the months to come too. 😊
