"We collaborate with and support our regional ministries and leaders in our shared spiritual awakening."
From the Regional Board
Could you use some financial relief? If you would like information on a government program which allows for employer payroll tax adjustments (refunds) for the majority of the Covid era, please write Dr. Richard Loren Held for details. Those organizations who have received PPP loans still qualify in part. Dr. Richard worked with a wonderful company in California and would be happy to refer. This blessing requires minimal effort and little cost. Thank you for helping spread the word.
Still need that Ethics CEU? Please contact Audrey Pitchford, LUT to take the class as an independent study.
Is your ministry currently without a credentialed leader? We have resources to help you and guidance for possible next steps. Please contact Rev. Rich Broderhausen to learn more!
