This was sent to me today.
GCI continues to look towards moving to Charlotte, North Carolina. Apparently the church is not taking most of its employees that work in Glendora with them. The rumor is that Joe is going to officially retire and turn over reigns to Greg Williams. It remains to be seen what will really happen.
Rod Meredith will be the first to take over a warm basket of cookies to welcome them to Charlotte. This will make Rod Meredith sooooooo happy!
GCI is also in a unique time of transition. I know that I myself have some important news to share with you all at our 2017 conference, as we look toward the future of this beautiful denomination. It will be a significant and historic moment, a chance to look back in gratitude over where God has brought us, and look forward with hope where he continues to lead. I know you’ll want to attend to hear from Greg Williams, Director of Church Administration and Development, as he begins an on-going conversation about the next chapter of Grace Communion International and its growth.
Here at GCI, we want to move into the future with clear eyes and with sensitive hearts to the guiding of our Triune God. We are in an important season as a denomination, one of transition and of goal-setting, as we continue to celebrate the wonderful things God has continued to do for us. I joyfully invite you to join us at our landmark 2017 Denominational Conference. You can check gci.org/events for updates, and be the first to know when registration opens in December. My heart is full as I look forward to the blessings and the richness of this family gathering.
What a joy to participate with Jesus and each of you in this life-changing work of sharing the good news about Jesus with others around the world. Thank you for your support!
I’ll keep an eye out for you in Orlando!
President – Grace Communion International
