Presiding Elder



From the Presiding Elder’s Desk

Greeting to the Greater Newport News District:

It is with great joy and excitement that I look forward to this conference year. I am expecting God to use each of us to serve this present age. I am humbled by the appointment as the Presiding Elder of this great District, but I am also deeply appreciative and ready to serve. I would like us this year to focus on our service to God and to each other. Our District theme will be centered on the following text:

“Whoever wants to become great among you 

must serve the rest of you like a servant.” 

—MATTHEW 20:26

“Becoming great requires us to become servants.” 

The Serving Newport News District will allow us to become the even Greater Newport News District. So let us discover and develop ways we can be of greater service to our follow man. Please remember to pray for our leadership and each other, that we will be led by the Spirit in all that we do. Let us continue to do God’s will His way.

Be blessed,

Rev. Dr. Vincent M. Jones, Sr.

Presiding Elder
