Gulf States Hurricane Help
My opportunity to be in Alabama and Mississippi was at the invitation of the Gulf States Conference. I was there last week to speak first to the pastors and then later to the elders and deacons about Reconnecting Ministries. We had a great time together sharing stories and strategies for making Adventist congregations better "cities of refuge" for inactive members. I was impressed with their willingness to embrace these concepts and was particularly delighted to meet so many elders who were essentially bi-vocational pastors in distracts where the pastor has three and four churches.
