Greetings From the Moderator
My Fellow Laborers and Servants of God, Almighty:
Greetings in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Allow me to express my gratitude to each of you for your continued support of me and the leadership. It has not gone unnoticed.
One of my favorite Hymns entitled "We've Come This Far by Faith, Leaning on the Lord" has a profound meaning to me; the operative words are "Leaning on the Lord." God has sustained this Association through ups and downs, and through challenging circumstances, enabling us to endure for One Hundred and Two Years. I believe this is the greatest District and I am honored to serve as your Moderator.
As we launch forward into 2023 as a District Association, our aim is to collectively see the vision and work God has for us and to make a great impact on our churches, communities, and lives of His people. We will aim to provide excellence in ministry through:
- Recruiting and reactivating our Pastors and churches that have been dormant.
- Strengthen the Pastors' hands through preaching, seminars, and fellowship.
- Reshape our Ministries toward the 21st Century.
- Increase the participation of our Youth and Young Adults
Let us maintain our unity as we work towards our objectives. All of your support is necessary. Our faithfulness will be rewarded by God. My motivation for Ministry has always been "seeing lives change."
The Lord has shown me that our labor is not in vain. It is my prayer that we will abide in His Word and continue to bring forth fruit. My desire is to honor God in all that we do. I firmly believe that the Lord has great things in store for this great Association.
Our Association theme for 2023 is: "Forging a New Destiny" (Philippians 3:14; NIV). God has called and commissioned us to lead this Association, for such a time as this. I want each of us to strive for excellence in everything we do, from the least to the greatest; always put forth our best efforts in leadership for the Association. The phenomenal success of our East Zion Consolidated District Association is a reflection of the ever increasing dedication and enthusiasm of our dedicated leaders, Pastors, and members.
That being said, continue to move forward, keeping your eye on the prize. Great things are on the horizon.
In His Service,
Dr. Kelly R. Booker, Moderator
East Zion Consolidated District Association
