Yesterday, it was my privilege to share in the General Assembly for CBFVA. It was a great day to share. We had Bo Prosser, Suzy Painter, Davita Parnell, and Ruth Lee from CBF Global participating with us. Worship was great, the reminiscing was good, and the best thing of all was that we old folks were outnumbered by younger faces. We announced a Together for Hope Partnership with Bluefield College for Southwest Virginia, adopted an initiative to aid congregations who need extra grant funds to get creative ministries off the ground, and we had a report of being well in the black financially and adopted a budget in excess of $300,000 and received the promise of a $100,000 grant coming for special projects above our budget. We listened to reports on youth ministries that are running at capacity and celebrated youthful leadership helping us to go forward. It has been a great 25 years, and there is a lot to celebrate in what is being done.
