Sat., Aug. 29th was a historic day for our region. We had our first official meeting as the South Region of the Wyoming Southern Baptist Convention in Hanna, WY. Our region encompasses from Rock Springs to Cheyenne along the I-80 corridor. The 3 former associations (Green River, Energy Basin, & Frontier) are all now one regional association.
All messengers present representing 10 churches, voted in new officers, new budget, new signers for the bank account, new Executive Board, and new Constitution and By-Laws. We also recommended a short list of calendar items for the Executive Board to consider.
Once the Constitution & By-Laws are approved by the Secretary of State then we will officially close the current bank account and reopen a new one under the new name.
Our Dir. of Missions is officially our Regional Missionary but is a state convention staff employee. The prayer and challenge is for our churches to step up and be involved to help out, and as always pray for our new leadership during this new, exciting, and challenging time.
