A message from the District Secretary…
For the first time in the 79 year history the Virginia District had to cancel its district assembly gathering of all its churches and pastors and have the business of the district conducted by the District Advisory Council. Some of the highlights of our meeting were:
  • The approval of Tabitha Ezelle Jernigan, Bobbie Jo King, Brad Lee Robertson; and Lee Allen Schnelle to be ordained as elders in the Church of the Nazarene and the recognition of Kawika Aulani Sever moving from deacon to elder status.
  • The recognition of the retirement of Carol Lee Dean, Debra M. Diehl (physical disability), William R. Dillon II, William Wayne Harnish, Herman C. “Buddy” Marston, Victor Phillip, C. M. Pruitt, and Virginia L. Pruitt.
  • Receiving the 16th report of Dr. Fuller to our district encouraging us not to return to the old ways of doing things (before the pandemic) but to use this as an impetus to try new things and reach new people for Christ and the Church.
  • The acknowledgment of all pastors reports being received.
  • Viewing the Memoirs Report and have a moment of silence, then prayer, for those of our members who passed away during the past year.
  • Using electronic voting to select delegates and alternates for the 2021 General SDMI Convention and General Assembly.
