Ephesians. 4:11-16 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; [12] For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: [13] Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: [14] That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; [15] But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: [16] From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

I see our job as a district to aid an assist the churches under the banner of U.M.B.D.A. to work together. Work together to do what? To win souls to Christ, to develop strong disciples and build the Kingdom of God. I see our district sending out teachers from some of our district churches to assist our sister churches. Many of our church leaders in the U.M.B.D.A. have great skills and knowledge and they want to share their knowledge with others. It is Moderator Cox’s own personal goal to see to it that three quarters of our district Pastors preach or teach at a sub-district or district level.
