Thanks to Rev. Greg Cox, Director of Connectional Ministries for the Western PA Conference of the United Methodist Church, for his presence with us this day. You might think of Rev. Cox as the “ministries coordinator” for our entire conference. His job is to oversee all of our missional endeavors throughout Western Pennsylvania. In addition to that, Greg is a charismatic young leader and pastor in our Conference. Greg preached upon the theme, “The Value of a Connection,” with Matthew 25:31-46 as his text. Greg is a much sought after preacher and facilitator among United Methodists in Western Pennsylvania, and throughout the church. He has honored us by agreeing to come. Remember, we can do much more by working together with others than we ever can by working alone!
