Southwest Region continues Restructure

God is at work in the Southwest Region! Over the years, there have been several efforts to reorganize the Region to increase the entire Region’s effectiveness and viability.

There is now an approved redesign that will place all administrative and staffing responsibilities at the Regional level, with a Regional staff consisting of a Regional Minister, Regional Executive, and Community Regional Ministers and support staff located across the entire Region. Areas would continue to provide valuable volunteer-led ministry. Click below to read more about the background and process that led us to this point.
