Dear Friends:

Grace and peace to you in this new year of our Lord! We thank God for your faithfulness in ministry and your commitment to serve Christ. The tasks of ministry are always challenging and rewarding but with the called session of General Conference we know some of you may be experiencing additional stress.

The Center for Clergy Excellence is providing five short videos to address some of the challenges you may be facing. The Rev. Mike Bonem developed these videos to help us lead our congregations through General Conference with as little anxiety as possible.

The videos will be released once a week for the next five weeks.

After they have been released for a week they will be posted on the Clergy Excellence website. We hope you find them helpful. We count it an honor to serve Christ with you, our sisters and brothers in the Texas Annual Conference. 

God bless,
Gail Ford Smith
