Bishop Frank Beard has announced the appointment of Dr. Rose Booker Jones as the new District Superintendent of the MRD effective July 1, 2017. I have enjoyed working with Rose on the cabinet and know that she is a highly capable DS. I thank God that the Bishop has appointed her to follow me in this role. Once again, I want to thank all of my clergy and churches for your support of my ministry these past three years. I couldn’t have experienced any fruitfulness apart from your prayers, love, and support. I look forward to my new ministry as Lead Pastor of Springfield First July 1, 2017. Please keep me and Brenda in your prayers. I am humbled by this opportunity. To God be the Glory!
