 Pastor Consultation Schedule for 2015


“Staying in Touch”

 Staying In Touch

I feel so blessed to be a part of the Marianna/Panama City District.  “District Day” held many blessings.  We had a great group that gathered from our local churches at the District Conference held at Forest Park UMC.  I want to give special thanks to the following:

Dr. John Friedman and the members of Forest Park UMC for hosting the event.  The facility was perfect for our worship, classes and fellowship.  The congregation worked overtime by providing greeters, musicians and an abundant spread of refreshments.  The food was beautifully prepared and served at two breaks.  We all enjoyed the day, thanks to their generous hospitality.

Juddy Stephenson, Pat Luna, Geoffrey Lentz and Sean Peters who joined me in offering classes for the edification and personal spiritual growth of the members of our district.

Congratulations to Pat Luna (Point Washington), Brenda Alford (Bonifay)and Antonius Barnes (Lynn Haven) who were nominated to be considered as Lay General/Jurisdictional Delegates.  The election will be held at our Annual Conference in June.

In addition, following the District Conference, the youth of our district gathered for praise, worship and fellowship at the Fusion Campus of Lynn Haven UMC.  250 were in attendance.  For this event, I want to thank:

Youth pastors that met to organize the event: Neal McGee (Lynn Haven), Paul Barnett (Point Washington), Josh Manning (Good News), Carl Fountain (FUMC Panama City), Bobbi Lassiter (Port St. Joe), and Jeff Painter (Saint Andrews).

Music was provided by Josh Johnson and band from Niceville.  Message was given by Neal McGee.

The highlight of the evening was that over 15 students gave their lives to Christ, and a multitude of students rededicated their lives.  This event was a huge success!  Praise God for the blessings of the day.

 Again I say, I love the Marianna/Panama City District and I am proud to serve as the Superintendent.
