Dear Colorado District Ministers,
Greetings in the name of Jesus! This has been a challenging year for many of us, but you have stayed strong during these uncertain times! You have persevered with much diligence, and God will continue to reward your efforts. Let us keep our vision clear and in front of us. We will pursue and recover all! This is still our finest hour! Let us keep working together for God’s kingdom and be blessed with revival!
It is with regret that I must inform you of the District Board’s decision to cancel Camp Meeting 2020. This conclusion came about with much thought, prayer, and consideration. This is due to the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 virus. At this time, large gatherings are not being allowed to meet in the normal fashion, due to the social distancing protocols. We expect this will continue to be an issue for some time. Financing of Camp Meeting is also a concern. Currently, most churches have had to make adjustments in the way they hold their services, which may have affected their giving abilities. While coming to this conclusion, all of these issues had to be considered. The event center personnel feel like we are making a very wise and responsible decision. Your safety and well being is of our utmost concern.
Coming up soon will be our annual District Conference Business Session. I am requesting all licensed ministers to attend. Keep in mind, we must ask that only licensed ministers attend due to social distancing. This year the spouses will not be attending due to county imposed restrictions. We are doing our best to follow those guidelines accordingly. Our new date for the District Conference Business Session will be Saturday, June 20, 2020 in Longmont, CO. We will begin at 9:30 AM sharp. There will be very few preliminaries. If you are late, you may miss part of the election. The conference will be held at Restoration Tabernacle. The address is: 1831 Boston Ave., Longmont, CO. 80501.
Schedule of District Conference: Saturday Session will begin at 9:30 AM. This is the year of election for Superintendent and most Departmental Heads. Please pray and fast for God’s will to be done. After our voting session has been completed, plan to stay around a little longer for our Departmental Leaders to honor our churches and pastors for giving. We will have to limit each one to a few short comments and your presentations. Due to our time restraints, we will not be able to show videos this year. You may send them out by emails to pastors, or send links for them to visit. Thank you for understanding! We will have a small meal prepared for everyone after our voting.
Please check your emails and district calendar for any changes made by our different departments. Also, we need everyone to check your e-mails concerning your dues from our secretary, Rev. Terry Plummer. You will need to sign your dues report, and return it or bring it with you to the Business Session. This was voted on by the constituency several years ago and must be followed.
I want to thank all Departmental Leaders for your service to the Colorado District! We have seen record offerings this past year as you have worked so hard for the Kingdom. Job well done to each of you! Our district is blessed to have such great leadership!
Thank you for another great year! Let us continue in revival in 2020. Our Vision must remain clear and in front of us as we continue in the growth and prosperity of the Colorado District. Remember, this is our hour for revival! It will only come through our continued sacrifice! I am honored to serve with you in God’s Kingdom!
Servant in Christ,
