James to continue Ohio pastoral support

January 26, 2021 Published by Neil Topliffe

The Michigan Regional Board has approved Eugene James continuing support to the Christian Church in Ohio as a Visiting Regional Minister. The extension will be for approximately six months. The pastoral care for the Northwest area of Ohio Disciples extends the previously approved “Memorandum of Understanding” which began in the fall of 2018.

Pastor Eugene James noted during discussion that his work in Ohio is primarily with Ohio Congregations searching for pastors or dealing with staff personnel issues. Most of 2020 has been done remotely via virtual meetings. Ohio currently is in the search process for a new Regional Minister. James explained that the Ohio work has not diminished his responsibilities to the Michigan Disciples.
