A Message from David Wells, General Superintendent
In a challenging time, we trust you were able to enjoy a meaningful Easter season with your loved ones and to worship in spirit, if not in person, with the congregation members you’re usually connected to. It’s comforting to be reminded of the truth of 2 Chronicles 16:9a (NIV): “For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.” Our hearts, thoughts, and most certainly our prayers continue to be with you as you navigate your current reality, trusting the Lord to grant you renewed strength each day.
To our pastors: if you haven’t already, we encourage you to register for General Conference 2020, and look forward to having you join our one-day online gathering on Tuesday, May 5, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT (Eastern Daylight Time). We’ll be using this condensed time to focus on key areas of business so that we can move forward as a Fellowship with clear direction into a new and unprecedented season. We’ll also be able to hear the results of a recent survey from our Strategic Vision Committee, and a presentation from our Theological Study Commission, hosted by Van Johnson.
Only voting members are to register. Non-voting members are invited to watch the General Conference online (this information will be provided closer to the date).
Additional updates will be sent between now and May 5. Thank you to our voting members for taking the time to register and be a part of this vital day.
Our prayer is that it will be a day the Spirit speaks to our hearts about the next steps we take together as a Fellowship, and that we will be encouraged in our mission together to make disciples wherever the Lord leads, working in unity, and commanding the Lord’s blessing (Psalm 133).
In His service,
David R. Wells
