A District Assembly De-Briefing

This June 5th-6th, we participated in the Southern California District's annual gathering of delegates, elders, celebrities, paparazzi press, and Bresee look-alikes - NazCon as I like to call it. We had our fair share of die-hards, goofballs, and rabble-rousers (that's you, Ric Martinez - 2 minutes means 2 minutes!), but all in all, it was a successful convention in which the work of God was celebrated and the people of God were challenged.

Three district licensed ministers (Melissa Tucker [S.D. First], Devin Anderson [Brawley], and Bonita Burgess [Highland]) were granted their ordination while three others (Steve Babbitt [Spring Valley], Alex Iniguez [San Jacinto], and Ryan Tarbox [Colton]) were granted their first district license. We join with God's church in praising Him for how the Spirit continues to call and equip His people for service.

In preparation for next summer, delegates elected 2 ordained elders and 3 lay delegates who would serve as district representatives to the 2017 General Assembly in Indianapolis. While write-ins "Batman" and R&b group "Destiny's Child" made a late push, the assembly ultimately elected Derek Taylor and Steve Rodeheaver as ministerial delegates and Vonda Rodeheaver, Pam Altice, and Dennis Butler as lay delegates.

The assembly also elected Rev. Tom Taylor to a 4 year term as district superintendent, highlighting the anticipation of the work God will continue doing through our Nazarene churches in Southern California. We look forward to seeing God work in new and creative ways as He guides His church through 2016 and beyond.

More information regarding elections and district positions will posted shortly on the district website.

P.S.: We are starting a "Summer Shorts" video series, outlining what God is doing on the SoCal district. This month we look to the new bi-lingual ministry at San Bernardino First. Feel free to click on the adjacent picture to watch and download the video. We encourage everyone not only watch it but to spread the message of what God is doing in S.B. through their bi-lingual new start.
