It is my privilege to announce the formation of the Office of Young Adult Ministries in the South Central Conference. The director of this new department is the cornerstone of our Young Adult Initiative, which the highest priority for the South Central Conference for the years 2015 and 2016.
The Young Adult Initiative, which I have shared with the Pastors of our conference and our Executive Committee, seeks to be intentional about fully involving young adults in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and in the operating of our conference and our local churches.
We shall fully share this initiative with our constituency immediately after the Christmas holidays, but its intent is to begin to change the culture of the South Central Conference.
Young adults are inevitably the future of our conference, but that is not enough-they must be a part of the present as well. We must both invite and challenge them to do more, to be the vital part of the mission of our church that the Lord intends for them to be. On a personal level, I consider leading out in getting that done as the most important thing left for me to do in the 19 months that remain for me in this office.
On this past Sunday, 12-14-14, the Executive Committee invited Pastor Lola Moore, to serve as Conference Young Adult Ministries Director, effective January 1, 2015. She currently serves as the Pastor of the Panama City/Greenwood, Florida district, Pastor Moore is a very gifted Pastor, whom the Lord has blessed both musically as well as in the declaration of the Word of God.
Pastor Moore will work with the conference young adults, and our churches to help them to maximize the gifts and talents. […]
