    Bill Carr was here for > 5 years; Clarence Hildreth was here for > 5 yrs; Dave Sharpes was only here for 2 years but I think he is the exception. I'm not sure we have had a lot of turnover.

    I have no idea what that committee is supposed to do. Assuming they have power, they need people who are interested in more than organizational efficiency. Each geographic region in the Usa has its...

    Re: What's up with Upstate?

    Ryan,

    Under my plan Philly gets three 150+ churches from our southern tier. :)
