Over 300 people gathered at New Vision Christian Church in Kansas City on January 24 in a celebration of consecration as the Rev. Bill Rose-Heim was installed as Regional Minister of the Greater Kansas City Region. Rev. Rose-Heim served as Area Minister of the former Northwest Area. CCMA was represented by Regional Minister Team members Rev. Dr. Larry Colvin, who brought greetings, and Rev. Dr. G. Mike Weinman who brought a warning to the Region, 'do not think they could sit back now that they had a new Regional Minister. Bill will not accept that response.'
Rev. Dr. Sharon Watkins, General Minister and President, in her address reminded that we are a denomination that takes seriously the "ministry of all believers." We understand ministry is never done in a vacuum. In accepting his call, Rev. Rose-Heim, reiterated this as he sought the hands and prayers from all.
