Executive Committee convenes » This past Tuesday, May 22, the Rocky Mountain Conference Executive Committee members met. It was a productive meeting, with several exciting agenda items. First, the committee voted, subject to the recommendation of the Ordination Review Committee, for Ruddy Vivanco’s name to be sent to the Mid-America Union Executive Committee for consideration for ordination to the gospel ministry.
Another exciting agenda item was the approval of a new youth evangelism coordinator position. This new ministry is possible because of a generous donation by one of our members, which will cover the expenses of a program to disciple and provide opportunities for our young people to be involved in evangelism, as well as for a coordinator for the program.
Jamey Houghton, a pastor from Bakersfield, Calif., who comes highly recommended and has much experience in training and equipping young people, has been invited to coordinate this new ministry. He has experience leading youth evangelism teams in the United States and overseas. Pastor Houghton’s goal is to work closely with young people in all our academies, as well as with those who are home schooled or in public school who desire to participate. He and his family will arrive in July.

Resting in Jesus » Two of our ministry spouses, Linda Aalborg (Littleton) and Judy Schwarz (Canon City/Salida), have experienced the death of a parent recently. Linda’s father passed away last week, just a few short months after her mother’s death. Judy said goodbye this week to her mother, just one day after her father’s 87th birthday. Please remember these women of God and their families as they mourn the loss of their parents who are now resting in Jesus. Come soon, Lord Jesus!
