While the adoption of the Forward to a New Spring plan maintained the Central Texas Conference’s current structure of five geographic districts – Central, East, North, South and West – the plan reduced the number of District Superintendents from five to three and established three District Areas. The Forward to a New Spring initiative also established District Discipleship Teams for each District Area designed to assist the District Superintendents in their duties, get as many resources as possible directly to the local churches and assist, develop and grow the clergy and lay leadership in each district. Each of the District Discipleship Teams have been coming together during the first part of the year (in between historic ice storms, Lent, Easter and other local church duties) to get to know each other and set out their strategies and plans. As they begin to roll out these plans in their district areas, we'd like to introduce the members of the district teams to you beginning with those who have answered the call to serve as Assistant District Superintendents. We'll introduce the other members of the team in the coming weeks.
Please click on the video below to meet your Assistant District Superintendent, Rev. Jay Fraze and hear a little bit about just what is an Asst. DS and how he is looking forward to assisting local churches and clergy/lay leadership as we together journey Forward to a New Spring in our wildly important goal of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
