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!’
While I have thoroughly enjoyed our journey together, I believe God is now calling me to move into a new chapter of life. For this reason, after prayerfully seeking God’s sense of direction, as well as the counsel of my wife and others, I have decided to retire from my ministry with ABC/Ohio effective December 31, 2015.
I am reminded of what has been my theme passage of Scripture for much of my ministry…
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3: 5-6 NAS
I praise God for guiding me along the path with ABC/Ohio for almost 25 years. I look forward to the new path He is leading me and my wife on in the days ahead.
Together Serving Christ,
Robert M. Cassady
ABC/Ohio Regional Minister
