District Superintendent Weekly Update

March 13, 2019

Shenandoah Wesleyan Teammate,

Christian greetings!
In the book of Acts, the author writes how Paul traveled and spoke “many words of encouragement to the people”. (20:2) __ Do you encourage the people you serve or serve with? I believe one of the most critical needs today in the lives of people is the need to be encouraged. Encourage someone on purpose today. You’re a champion!!!! 

It’s been a while since I touched base with you in this particular format; I’m talking green background and all. LOL __I hope that you’ve received the other little notes that I’ve sent out via email. I like to stay connected and keep you informed about what’s going on in the region. You should have received the quarterly newsletter in your inbox yesterday; the Shenandoah News provides info that should be helpful. Please be mindful of our Kid’s Camp dates and details. I hope that you will promote the event and help us in building a good strong camp this year. IF you have further questions please contact Pastor Dominic at Brookhill Wesleyan; he can be reached at 434-660-1709.

I want to let you know that Dr. Brady Stephens has informed Homeland Church (Parkersburg, WV) that he will be stepping down as their lead pastor this year. Pastor Brady will serve through July 14th. I/we sure appreciate the many years that Brady and Jenny have served in that city. Just one of the blessings of their service was the establishing of a daughter campus in another part of Parkersburg. The Gathering is thriving and making a significant difference for the cause of Jesus Christ. COME ON SOMEBODY!!!!

In case you haven’t heard, Rev. & Mrs. Steve Miller had a death in their family a week or more ago. Lynn’s dear mother passed away and was memorialized on Saturday (3-09). The Miller’s are wonderful and loving teammates who have served faithfully; as a district family we extend our sincere sympathy. Their daughter Rebecca serves as a missionary in the Czech Republic. Feel free to reach out to Steve & Lynn at 114 Prospect Rd.  Hurt, VA 24563.

Next year’s EXPONENTIAL dates are March 2 – 5; once again it will be held in Orlando. The theme for next year’s (2020) conference will be Pursuing The Great Collaboration. What would it look like if we pursued The Great Commission TOGETHER? A conference like EXPONENTIAL is a continuing ed. opportunity.

I hope that your local church is gearing up for an epic Easter season. Allow me to share that you will be allowed to count as Primary Worship attendance on Good Friday, any evangelistic Saturday events (Gospel has to be presented), Sunrise Service and of course the regular morning gatherings. I ask that you count with integrity; I do want you to get credit for your hard work. HE LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!

This Week’s Prayer Needs:
1.  Rev. Roy Rogers – as he continues a healthy recovery from heavy/serious heart surgery. He received a wonderful report from the doctor this week. PTL!!!!!!
2.  Pastor Joey Ryan – from Bramwell has been having ongoing heart issues.
3.  Pastor Nelson Parker (Raven Rock) – is struggling physically; facing potential surgery in the future.
4.  Pastoral Voting – taking place later this month. Pastors who have been voted on should know how to pray for pastors being voted on.
5.  Churches/Pastors – that are entering a time of transition.
6.  District Conference – scheduled for July 15 & 16.

Have a GREAT rest of the week.

Pastor Greg
