Regional Ministries

MINISTRY LEADERS, MEMBERS & VOLUNTEERS


 


 



Regional Ministries helps regional black churches grow spiritually, numerically and financially to experience revival and life-changing transformation.

 

The Office of Regional Ministry coordinates, develops and sustains a high level of:

  • Unity among pastors and laity;
  • Representation and participation by black pastors, laity, churches and constituency in the overall ministry of the conference;
  • Connection within the church, community and with faith-based organizations.

Primary Focus

EuGene Lewis has the privilege of serving as coordinator of Regional Ministries for Washington Conference and works alongside of our African American pastors and churches.

Pastor Lewis says his responsibilities are four-fold:

Evangelism

Work closely with African American pastors and congregations in the planning, and budgeting of  evangelistic activities.

It is in doing Christ’s work that the church has the promise of His presence….The very life of the church depends upon her faithfulness in fulfilling the Lord’s commission.

Ellen White in Desire of Ages, p. 825

Collaboration

Serve as a conduit—motivate our African American pastors, laity, churches, and constituency to participate in the overall vision of the conference, so as to creatively and substantively contribute to the overall planning and implementation of comprehensive strategies and programs designed to grow individuals, families, churches, schools and institutions in the Washington Conference.

Personnel

Assist administration in the process of locating personnel by maintaining resumes and lists of potential employers, and selection and introduction of new pastoral leadership.

Liaison

Serving as a liaison between the conference administration and the African American community. Sometimes prophet, speaking on behalf of the conference-its policies and procedures to the people, and sometimes priest, speaking on behalf of the people—their practical needs and concerns to the conference.  

Regional Advisory Committee

The Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) is comprised of pastors and head elders from each regional church and serves as the official voice to the Washington Conference Executive Committee. Pastor Lewis is the seated spokesperson for the RAC at Executive Committee.

The RAC seeks to accomplish the following goals for 2020/21:

  • Plan the annual Unity Day of Fellowship (held in January 2020)

  • Plan the Breath of Life Evangelistic meeting which will now take place July 18-31, 2021, at the Federal Way Performing Arts Center (rescheduled from 2020 because of COVID-19). The evangelistic meeting is part of an overall strategy to replant the Breath of Life Church in the city of Federal Way near its target audience

  • Lastly, grow the Ghanaian group, to company status, and church status by 2022

Western Washington is ripe for the kind of harvest Jesus expressed in John 4:35b

Behold, I say unto you, lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

We are surrounded by people of diverse backgrounds and cultures. What they are searching for we (our) church possesses.

"As the RAC continues to promote respect and awareness of our cultural heritage, we pray for God to help us, to give us His spirit, and to grant us wisdom to reach those who are searching and ready to accept Christ as their personal Savior while we continue to minister and rekindle our people’s passion for Christ and His Great Commission,” Pastor Lewis says. "Please join us in praying, learning, listening, and sharing."
