Mid-America, September 2018
FROM YOUR REGIONAL DIRECTOR
Welcome to a new school year. I am so looking forward to seeing you and finding out how you are doing. I must confess, I have written this greeting several times debating with myself what to write. And each greeting is far too long and insufficient for what I want to share. Suffice it to say I am praying for you and hope to see you soon. Our prayer for you is taken from Ephesians 3 which focuses on strength and power...not yours but the strength that the LORD alone supplies...all for Christ's glory.
"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."
I look forward to seeing you at our district meetings coming soon
Jeff Mattner - Regional Director, Mid-America
Featured event: Fall District Meetings
District or State meetings in September are an important venue for re-connecting with leaders in your area. It's an opportunity to convene, connect and encourage.
Besides hearing about recent legislation and/or regulations in your State, you will be challenged to think about school safety in a way that you may not have thought before...Physical Safety, Emotional Safety, and Spiritual Safety.
Come prepared to join a discussion group and share and take away some new ideas and action items. Lunch will be provided. Register today if you haven't done so already. We'll see you there!
