Thank you so much to all who participated in the Regional Discernment Meetings held last week.
I had such a great time traveling around the conference and meeting so many of you face-to-face. I put a total of just of 3000 miles on my truck as I moved from New Mexico to Texas, to Oklahoma, to Kansas, to Colorado, and back home to New Mexico. A highlight for me was stopping by several of our churches and visiting with the pastors on a casual basis.
I felt like the Discernment Meetings went pretty well. Our purpose was to provide the opportunity for anyone and everyone from our conference to speak to the question of our continuing relationship with MCUSA. I praise the Lord that many of you took the time to do that. A variety of ideas and concerns were voiced and I appreciate the honesty and kindness that was evident.
The Network Leadership Team will be reviewing the notes and comments from each of the meetings and deciding on a proposed path forward. We will keep you informed as this process continues, and we would appreciate your continued prayers as we work through this important and difficult time.
Blessings to you and yours,
SCMC Network Chair
Dear Pastors and Leaders within SCMC
There are several positions within the conference that remain unfilled. We are in need of persons willing to take on some of these responsibilities so that God’s work through our conference can continue.
Administrative Assistant Needed: South Central Mennoninte Conference (SCMC) is in need of a qualified individual to serve as the SCMC Administrative Assistant. This is a 1/4 time position (about 8-12 hours most weeks, but more in the several months leading up to our Annual Assembly in July) with a very flexible schedule. Responsibilities include sorting mail and emails, distributing information, assisting the treasurer, recording and filing meeting minutes and other correspondence. Much of the work could be done at home, but weekly trips to the Hesston area are required. For more information or to apply, contact the conference at email@example.com .
The Gift Discernment Team is looking to fill:
- Several Network Leadership Team positions that need to be filled next summer.
The Network Leadership Team is seeking:
- a qualified person to serve as a Regional Ministry Coach
- another to serve as our Network Director.
In addition, there are openings for:
- a representative on the board for Camp Mennoscah
- a champion for the KLC Transformation Grant
Please be in prayer concerning these needs, and if the Spirit brings someone to mind who might be qualified, please let us know and encourage that person to consider that call.
Thanks so much for your attention to this.
