ABCOPAD Staff Changes



Dear ABCOPAD Family,

Over seven years ago, the LORD brought the Rev. Dr. Kevin Walden to be a part of our ABCOPAD Regional Staff. Within a few months of his arrival, we launched out on a totally new regional ministry design built around our regional vision, with Kevin becoming our Regional Pastor with Pastoral Leaders. During these years Kevin has been a critical part of our regional staff team, helping us to pioneer the development of numerous ministry initiatives, not the least of which was our Leadership Learning Communities and the Refirement Interim Ministry program.

These experiences have blessed us as a regional family and further prepared Kevin for continued work in God’s Kingdom, and so today we announce that Kevin has been called to become the Associate General Secretary for Congregational and Pastoral Effectiveness, effective January 1, 2018. While we will certainly miss his ministry in our midst as a part of our regional staff, we do celebrate and rejoice with him in this new and challenging call upon his life. In the coming days, I hope each of you have an opportunity to express your thanks to our brother for his faithful service, as well as to remember him in prayer as he prepares for this new work with our wider ABCUSA Family.

Below you will find a link to Kevin’s letter announcing this new call on his life.

Trusting in God’s Provision and Presence as we move forward into the future
