               Share your understanding of the relationship of the District structure with the local congregation.
               The District is comprised of each Member of each Congregation that is a part of the District.  The District
               is to assist all the Congregations and their Members to become all that they can be with God’s help and
               direction and with the aid of resources of the District.  The ministry of the District is to present Jesus
               Christ as the only Way to God, and to live and teach that All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and
               is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of
               God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.  II Timothy 3:16 & 17.

               Describe the gifts God has given you to continue the work of Jesus; particularly through the position to which
               you have been nominated.
               God enables me to teach, preach, and share the truths and principles of His Holy Scriptures in such a
               way as to encourage, exhort, and help us all to grow in the grace and love of Jesus Christ.

               How do you foresee implementing the gifts above to the position which you are being nominated?
               It is my desire to honor Scripture and glorify God by serving with the ability and strength He provides for
               each task.

               List the intercultural experiences you have been a part of during the past 5-8 years.
