October 2015   


Thank you for visiting our website.

I count it a tremendous privilege and honor to act as your Moderator for this time of transition in leadership.  Brother Derrell has done a wonderful job leading us as our Director of Missions, and we are sad to see him go!  However, we also rejoice with him and give God praise for continuing to use him for the sake of Christ as he follows the Lord’s direction for his life.  It is my hope to bring some needed leadership in the wake of his retirement, as we seek God’s next man to lead our association to greater heights of influence and impact for Jesus!  If I can be of assistance to you or your church please don’t hesitate to call or email me at:  nlbchris@live.com or you may reach me by phone at 886-8764.   God Bless you as follow Him!
