Greetings fellow Pastors and Churches of the Great Rivers Region in Areas I & III;

I am honored to be working for the region as the Regional Associate Minster for both Areas I & III. This is something I feel called by God to do for His glory. Evidently the search committee and the Executive Minister also sense the same God’s calling on me as well. It is a privilege which I do not want to take lightly.

If you do not know me yet; I look forward to meeting you. I am going to do my best to be at as many Cluster meetings as my schedule will allow. I think the clusters are great places to meet, answer questions, give information and get to know most of you.

I also realize that the Bi-vocational Pastors in Areas I & III will have a more difficult time. Therefore, I would like to arrange a Cyber Cluster for you. Cyber Clusters meet at a designated day and time over the internet through video calls. I want to try and find a time, once a month, that we can meet together via these video calls. All you will need is a good internet connection and a place you can hear and be heard. You can use your phone or computer; however, one with a cameras is best. This can be at your office or your home; just not a restaurant because of the background noise. Please contact me and, hopefully, we can find a time for us to gather via the internet.

If you ever want to connect with me, you can contact me via my new email address
at: Rex@abcgrr.org

And please make sure your current e-mail address is with the regional office so you won’t miss anything in the future.

My GRR phone is 779-207-9188. Both should be included at the bottom of this email/letter.

I have already begun meeting with several churches who have vacancies and have a few church celebrations on my calendar for this summer and fall. If you have a particular celebration you would like for me, or the region, to attend; please, let us know soon as the Sunday’s fill up fast. I also understand I will be seeking Area Assistants for both I & III. If you are interested in helping the region in this way, please let me know and we can talk further.

That is probably too much for now; but, I did want to connect with you shortly after my start. I hope to be with and meet most of you soon. It may not be on a Sunday; but let’s get together soon.
