Greetings to all the pastors and churches of the Northwest District!
I look forward to serving you as your superintendent. I have heard wonderful things about this district from Bob and the other superintendents who have served you. My wife, Pam, and our children, Mark and Rachel, and I, have great memories of our ten years at Bethany Church in Palmyra.
Soon I will be sending you information about the annual pastoral interviews and about this year’s charge conferences. I am planning to attend each church’s charge conference this first year, so I can meet you all in your own facilities. In the future we will try some more creative groupings and alternative ways of my being with each congregation.
Bishop Johnson has set my service of installation as Northwest District Superintendent for Saturday, September 10. It will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Trinity Church in Lickdale. A reception and refreshments will follow the service. I look forward to seeing all the pastors and representatives from each congregation at this gathering of the district. It is a time to celebrate our unity in ministry and praise Christ our Lord.
Grace and peace to you all!Gary Nicholson
