Sam Royappa, Dean of the Cabinet, said that change and transition has been the major theme of meetings over the last year, and that the Cabinet is working closely with Bishop Jung to facilitate change in a way that honors the three missional reasons for change: effectiveness or fruitfulness, intentional leadership presence, and creative ministries across the Conference. “As a Cabinet, we act missionally, while thinking institutionally,” he said. Royappa also talked about the great thing God is doing across our Conference through new congregations, new racial and ethnic ministries, and the cultivation of generosity. “Across our Conference, people are looking for ministry opportunities and mission possibilities”, he said, and talked about some of our emerging and growing ministries, including food pantry ministry, Volunteers in Mission, multicultural/multiracial ministries, regional ministries, cooperative ministries, ecumenical shared ministries, and blended ministries. “The Cabinet is committed to continue to know God's love and make it known to people of all ages, nations, and races,” he said. “We are committed to worship authentically, to serve joyfully, to grow spiritually, and to connect relationally within the Conference.” Click here to view full presentation.
