As a part of the Forward to a New Spring initiative, each of the District Areas established District Discipleship Teams 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 other members of the teams in the coming weeks.) Please view the video below featuring Leslie Byrd, Jay Fraze and Pat McCain and hear a little bit about just what is a Asst. DS and how they are looking forward to assisting local church 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.
