To All ABC/Ohio Pastors, Ministry Leaders, Church Members & Friends:
It has truly been an honor and privilege to serve Christ through the ministries of our ABC/Ohio Region for almost 25 years. God has richly blessed me with the opportunity to establish many friendships and ministry partnerships for which I will be eternally grateful.
Over the years I have experienced God doing some incredible ministry during our time together. Both our ABC/Ohio Region and many of our churches are going through significant ministry-changing transformations. God is truly in our midst and doing great things. We continue to partner to work together in ‘building healthy churches that impact the world for Christ!’
