I am sure that each of you are aware by now that I have accepted the role as Acting Associate Regional Minister for the Region. Many of you would have received a letter from the Central/High Plains office from our Regional Moderator – Ruby Brower. If not, I want to share this with you:
The Regional Board held a special meeting on Sunday, September 17, 2023, to receive the resignation of the Rev. Ken Marston. As a part of that meeting, plans for continuing the ministry of the Christian Church in Kansas (Disciples of Christ) were discussed. During Rev. Marston’s sabbatical, the Region contracted with the Rev. Dr. David Dubovich to work part-time to help build and maintain relationships with congregations and pastors in the Central and High Plains areas. David has served the Kansas Region as the pastor of Park Place Christian Church in Hutchinson, Kansas, for the past eight years.
It seemed natural to the Executive Committee and the Kansas Regional Board to invite David to continue serving the Region full-time as Acting Associate Regional Minister. The Rev. Dr. David Dubovich accepted the call, submitted his 60-day notice to Park Place Christian Church, and will join the Kansas Regional Staff on November 28.
I want to say that I am looking forward to working alongside with each of you as we continue the work that God has called us to be within the Region of Kansas. I will be in touch with each of the clergy soon, to start scheduling visits to each of your congregations on a Sunday morning to come and worship with you and bring welcome to each of you from the Region. As I begin the transition from serving as Pastor at Park Place Christian Church to this new endeavor, feel free to reach out to me if you need anything. I will have a new email address soon so once I receive it and it is active, this will be published for another means to reach me.
Blessings to each of you,
Rev. Dr. David Dubovich
