District Superintendent Weekly Update

Shenandoah Teammates,

    Christian greetings. HE IS RISEN!!!!!

    The Psalmists wrote, “I lift up my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121: 1 – 2 ___ He has been our help through all ages and He will help us in the months and years to come. Praise His Eternal Name!

    The last couple weeks has found our office team prepping for Conference and Power ’22. We’ve been “fishing” for last minute information from local churches, compiling material that we need for conference business, and putting reports together for the conference notebooks. We say a huge THANK YOU to servants from Penn Forest Wes who came to the district office on Wednesday to help us. It was also a treat to welcome Rev. & Mrs. Rene Melendez(El Salvador) to the office. Our national leaders of the Wesleyan work in El Salvador are going to be in the states for several weeks.

   Two Sundays ago(6/26) I had the joy of being in Parkersburg, WV at The Gathering(Rev. Melody Smith). Pastor Melody preached a great message at the home campus in the morning; the worship team did an epic job as well. In the afternoon I sat under the preaching of Pastor Brad Huggins at the 14th Street campus of The Gathering. The church is truly being the Church in that community as they serve and share in the name of Jesus Christ. On Saturday, prior to the 26th, we enjoyed a  regional time of fellowship at my favorite restaurant in Parkersburg. ___ Last Sunday Becky and I paid our last official visit at Emmanuel Wes in Roanoke(Rev. Matt Reynolds). Pastor Matt, who is also our son, had asked months ago if EWC could be our last visit. I had the privilege of preaching, the worship was great, and the Spirit met with us. My time with the LBA was excellent; Emmanuel is enjoying momentum and has vision for the future. The local church will be hosting a Christian School on their campus this coming academic year. COME ON SOMEBODY!!!!!

    As I sign off for the final time as DS I want to tell you that I sincerely love you. I hope to see you at Conference and Power!  Yesterday, we launched our big “family reunion” by hosting retired ministers and their spouses. Although I was unable to be with the group a good number of other district leaders helped host those precious servants of Jesus Christ. Pastor Tim pinched hit for me and did an amazing job. We are off and running……………………….

    You are an amazing group of people and the Shenandoah District is the very best! There is no other place, anything like this place, anywhere near this place, any better than this place, so Shenandoah is THE PLACE to be.😊

     YOU ARE LOVED!!!!!
     Pastor Greg
