The Mission Northeast Executive Board has met five times since the beginning of the year, working on a strategy for leading the region forward in the months and years ahead. Representatives from CBAmerica, Jim Leary and Stan Rieb, have been assisting the board in these meetings. The meetings have encompassed many discussions, including reviewing and reaffirming the Mission, Vision & Values statements.
Two of those meetings were with Missions Door leaders and pastors from the Boston and NYC Metro areas. There are many exciting things God is doing in building His kingdom through these servants and the board would like to find ways to expand this partnership for even greater ministry opportunities throughout the region.
A primary focus of the meetings has been to develop a leadership structure for the region in view of the current financial constraints, geographic vastness and cultural diversity of the region. The board has determined that having a group of part-time Area Directors (AD’s) would be a better way to address the many concerns in the region. The Area Directors would be able to focus on their individual geographic region and attend to the specific needs of the area. One of the Area Directors would be chosen to serve as the Lead Area Director (LAD). This person would also serve as the liaison to the Mission Northeast Executive Board and represent Mission Northeast to the CBAmerica board.
In the coming months the board has several key challenges before them. The first challenge is finalizing the job descriptions for the Area Directors and the Lead Area Director. Then the board can begin the selection of AD’s and the LAD. Additionally, several current board members’ terms are expiring at the end of this calendar year and the board will be seeking replacements for these individuals as well.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers as the Mission Northeast Region seeks more effective ways to reach the lost for God’s Kingdom.
