Three days plus travel were invested in Kingdom leadership this week with our General Superintendent, Dr. Wayne Schmidt, HQ Executive Cabinet, and nearly 30 District Superintendents at the annual DS Institute. The location for these meetings was at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando which is also the location for The Gathering 2019. It was an energizing and humbling week to interact with so many great leaders from across our denomination. A myriad of high order matters were on the agenda including several exercises regarding the measures of a movement in discipleship and multiplication. Significant numbers of districts are engaged in pilot explorations considering alliances and mergers to better reach the lost. An additional highlight honoured the retirement this summer of four long-standing District Superintendents (Randy Swink – Western Pennsylvania, Paul James – Northeast, Dan Berry – South Coastal, & Buddy Rampey – South Carolina) totalling 89 years of superintendence.
