The ABC-Ohio Nominating Committee is in the initial stages of finding nominees for upcoming and future vacancies on the Region Board and other committees. To help with this process, we are asking for our region's pastors to (1) Nominate people they believe would be an asset in regional leadership and/or (2) Make the form available to people who would like to be considered as a nominee. The Leadership Pool Nomination Form is available HERE. Feel free to make as many copies as necessary. To help the Committee fulfill its task, please return all completed forms to the ABC-Ohio office no later than June 30, 2013. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Rev. David Nuhfer, Chair ABC-Ohio Nominating Committee, at 614-764-1141 or Dr. Larry Swain, Executive Minister ABC-Ohio, at 740-587-0804.
Members and friends of the First Baptist Church of Delaware, the Marion Baptist Association, and the wider Christian family gathered to celebrate the ordination of Rev. Sam Chesser to the ministry. The First Baptist Church of Delaware is pastored by the Rev. Tim Chesser, who is also Sam's father. As a seminary student Sam served as pastor of the West Mansfield Baptist Church. Sam and his wife leave this week to Connecticut where he will begin his first pastorate as an ordained American Baptist minister.
