First District, it is with divine love that I greet you. I am certainly excited and humbled that you have chosen and entrusted me to serve as your moderator. As I come into this office, I am standing on the shoulders of the past moderators that have laid a firm foundation down through the years with God’s guidance.
As we move forward together, it is my prayer that we build upon that foundation and go higher. I believe with all my heart that this District is one of the best in the state; and the future is brighter than ever. However, if we’re going to achieve greater things and reach the next level, there are some areas we must strive for:
1. Operate with the Spirit of Excellence (Daniel6:3)
2. Operate with One Accord (Acts 2:1)
3. Operate with Intentional Purpose (Nehemiah 4:6)
4. Operate with Consistent Passion (Nehemiah 6:3)
These four disciplines are vital to our moving forward, and it is essential that all of us are ”all in”. I believe wholeheartedly that God has great things yet to come for this district. However, it is imperative that we are open and sensitive to the transitioning of God.
In 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 it says, “1 Corinthians 2:9-10
““But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”
Which means moving to the next level will absolutely require us being in tune with the Spirit of God. We must press forward with anticipation for what God is about to do. In closing, I believe as we work together, we can accomplish all He desires for this district and make a greater impact for His glory.
