Message from ABCOPAD Ministers Council:
The Ministers Council is accepting dues for 2013. Dues for the year are $75, which includes membership both in our Regional Council and in the National Ministers Council. Dues can be sent to Treasurer Rev.Margie McCarty at 33 Lincoln Avenue, Carbondale, PA 18407, or by paying on-line through the Region website.
Please make checks out to"Ministers Council". Dues should be received by April 30, 2013 to be applied to the current calendar year. This enables the region's council to send the national council's portion of the dues by their due date. Dues can be accepted at any time during the year. Dues paid in the last quarter of the year can be applied to the next calendar year if the member notifies the ABCOPAD Ministers Council treasurer that this is the intention.
Your dues help to provide training and continuing education events for ministerial leaders throughout the Region. This year, Ministers Council partnered with ABCOPAD and ABCNJ to produce the Fanning the Flame Conference.
For more information, please contact Rev. Margie McCarty at 570-282-2138 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
