On last Thursday evening, Debra and I met with the majority of our pastors in the Cleveland/Chattanooga district for a time of fellowship at a local restaurant in Cleveland. This is one of the continuing meetings we have had with pastors and their companions across the State of Tennessee.

Special thanks to Bishop A.J. Coalter for making the arrangements so that we could gather. Both districts were well represented, with the exception of just a few who were either on vacation or taking care of pastoral responsibilities. As I continue to say, we have wonderful pastors in the State of Tennessee and I am so honored to work among them.
