Getting to Know You

Like a number of pastors around our conference, I will be entering a new season of ministry on Sunday, July 1, 2018. As I’ve been thinking about becoming your West District Superintendent, the chorus of a song has been popping into my head. It’s “Getting to Know You” from the musical The King and I. The chorus goes

Ripples – Message from Dan

Ripples becoming waves becoming ripples was a part of the message and experience of our 2018 Desert Southwest Annual Conference. Throughout the conference, we considered the many ways in which our individual actions make an impact far beyond ourselves. As we collectively participate in the movement, the ripple carries an increasingly greater impact (don’t miss the 7-second video at the end of the article).

And be thankful… Paul Browning, District Lay Leader

What are the ideals that you live by? What are the ideals of faith to which you aspire? The foundation scripture for Annual Conference is found in Colossians 3:12-15. In the midst of a community in conflict the author of this important letter lets us know in very clear terms that the Christ follower is clothed in attributes that are part of every day life.

Stronger in Diversity

Stronger in Diversity

I love how God has made each of us so fantastically different from each other! I have never known two people who are exactly alike. Even the twins and triplets that I have known have been different from each other. Each of us have our own set of skills, gifts, and passions. We also have our own experiences and stories. These experiences have a tremendous effect on who we are as a person. This also colors how we see issues and see the world.

Welcome New Faces to the West District

Over the next few week, we would like to introduce you to the new faces in the West District. Please join us in welcoming them to the West District and continue to pray for them as they settle into their new appointments and assignments.
