Christian Church in Nebraska
eUpdate: Keeping Disciples Informed
It Was a Very Good Time
Richard Hull, Interim Regional Minister
“I thank my God every time I remember you constantly praying with joy in very one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel.” Philippians 1:3-4
I began my ministry with The Christian Church in Nebraska on January 2, 2018. I headed home on March 19, 2018. Chris Morton begins as our newly called Regional Minister in early April. Chris and I will keep up with emails and be available by phone for these this short period. Please email or phone.
I am glad to have been a short term “Husker.” When I wear my Nebraska hat and shirt I will remember you. I will picture:
- congregations feeding a hungry world
- worship services hearing God’s word proclaimed
- pastors praying with individuals facing life struggles
- counselors serving youth at Kamp Kaleo
- outcasts finding a welcoming faith community
- And more…
I can picture that because you offered that to me.
Thank you for the honor of serving Nebraska. I have enjoyed this ministry.
You will honor my short term of service if as pastors and lay leaders as you encourage your congregation to increase giving to The Disciple Mission Fund.
When I was a pastor I never saw this as an optional choice for congregations I served but a part of our mission and essential to Christian identity.
May the way of Christ be the way you travel on farms, in villages, over prairie, through cities and towns always seeking to love God with all that you are, love Neighbor as yourself and even learning to love your enemies.
