Dr. Carlton Byrd has received the nomination for president of Southwest Region Conference of SDA. Dr. Byrd is a conference native currently serving as pastor of Berean SDA Church and speaker/director for Breath of Life Ministries in Atlanta, GA. He is the former pastor of Belfort SDA Church in Houston, TX and has received recognition for his leadership in the development of the fastest growing church in the North American Division. This nomination must be ratfied by the delegates at constituency meeting. It is important that we educate ourselves so that we can make an informed decision at this upcoming election.

I believe that Dr. Byrd is a phenomenal worker and pastor however, my question is will Dr. Byrd remain in our conference long enough for us to benefit from his expertise? I think this is a valid question being that he is a highly qualified and popular individual internationally.
Also how will he address some of the issues discussed in the blog?
Pastoral Development and Advocacy
Low Morale Amongst Workers
Our Deteriorating Campground
Youth Oriented Issues and Programs
