The Handoff Begins...
The ministerial staff of the ABC Great Rivers Region works to better meet the needs of the churches and pastors of the Region. At left, Muriel Johnson, permanent full time regional associate minister serving Areas IV and V (southern IL and MO) explains to her colleagues - who are coming on staff - a lesson about area ministry as she has experienced it. At her right is temporary part-time (20 hours / 2.5 days per week) regional associate to serve Area III, Adrian Lamkin, and to her right Rachel Cocar - also temporary part-time and to serve Area I. John Grisham at right in blue shirt looks on. He is returning in the same temporary part-time status but to serve Area II churches that retiring Executive Minister Dwight Stinnett has been serving. At bottom left Larry Mason, interim Executive part-time, looks on. Dwight Stinnett (retiring the end of June) and Richard Ricks (retiring - end of August) regional associate serving Areas I and III in a full time position) are not pictured.
Here are the new staff in separate photos: Larry Mason, Rachel Cocar, Adrian Lamkin.
