From the District Superintendent We are excited about the NEO Ministry Team Retreat this weekend at Chateau on the Lake in Branson, MO. Drs. Chuck and Carla Sunberg will be our special speakers and Rev. Brady Thelander will lead our worship. Pray for this to be a time of refreshing and renewal for the outstanding NEO pastors and spouses. I have set aside a day on each Mission Area to meet with lead pastors to discuss ministry and each church’s Annual Goals and Expectations. I value these opportunities for sharing and welcome your prayers that they would truly be times of mutual encouragement. On some of the Mission Areas, the Mission Area Coordinators will also join us for the meeting. Here are the dates: October 3 – Northeast October 8 – Tulsa October 15 – Southeast October 22 – Southwest October 28 – Northwest Rev. Mike and Diane Johnson......
