This year our newly elected President, Rev. Christopher Davis had a truly unique vision, to write a grant to cover the regional dues for everyone. Guess what... He did, and the grant was awarded! Your regional dues are paid, and you are member of the ABCOPAD Ministers Council for 2019. Welcome and congratulations!

If you have not received your new card for 2019, please email me ( and we’ll get one out to you as soon as possible. We are preparing to hold some pastoral gatherings around the region during 2020 so get ready! I think that they will be profitable and encouraging to you, your spouse and your ministry. 

Please don’t forget that you will still need to pay your National Dues for 2019, and they can be paid either online or through the mail.

God bless you!
Pastor Mark Schollaert
