Greg Williams, director of GCI-USA Church Administration and Development, recently visited the Hildebran, North Carolina church where he commissioned Paul David (PD) Kurts as one of six U.S. regional pastors.
PD, who had been serving as the lead pastor of the Hildebran congregation and assistant regional pastor in the U.S. eastern region, will now, along with his wife Emma Lee Kurts, be focusing his ministry on pastoring the lead pastors and pastoral teams who serve the congregations in the GCI-USA Mid-Atlantic region. The Hildebran congregation is now being served by a pastoral team made up of elders and ministry leaders.
In addition to commissioning PD (see picture), Greg preached a sermon from Ephesians 4 in which he encouraged the congregation to promote unity by walking in step with the Holy Spirit. He challenged PD to do the same in serving his region.
