Point of Contact, Summer 2017 PCG General Convention: Dr. Wayman Ming was elected as our General Bishop.  He has served at Messenger College (Pastor Jared’s professor, choir director, and basketball coach).  The Ingles served on the ministerial team for Pastor Ming at Joplin Family Worship Center, after Pastor Marvin Turner (who was MtZ’s founding pastor).  Pastor Jared served as one of his Elders during the transition when Pastor Dan Wermuth became the new pastor, and Pastor Ming became the Southern Missouri District Bishop.  Under his leadership, Pastor Jared was Ordained, after twelve years of ministry.  General Bishop Ming has invested in the leadership of MtZ, by investing in the ministry of our pastors during a strategic season of their development, as he has done for countless others.  His acceptance speech is offered here, as a point of connection for our congregation.
