Promotional Director Announces Retirement

Letter From Promotional Director Glenn Poston

Next September, 2019, will mark my 67th birthday and the completion of 13 years of serving as your Tennessee promotional director. It has been without hesitation the greatest blessing of my life and ministry. I have enjoyed every minute of serving the wonderful churches of our state and I consider it the highest honor and privilege of working with the dedicated pastors and lay leaders in this part of God’s kingdom.

God has revealed His mighty power time and time again in providing for the needs of the state office and I marvel at His goodness and grace. But now, the Lord has confirmed to my wife and I that it is time for me to transition from this office. I strongly feel that I do not have the stamina to continue at the pace I have been running for the past several years and give the ministry the level of activity and vision it requires. As you know the travel required for this job can be exhausting and it’s getting harder for me to bounce back. Perhaps it’s time to consider a younger man for the job. I do have some health issues that have occurred when I became extremely tired and I feel that slowing down is the prudent thing to do.

The guiding verse from God’s Word for my life has always been, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine  own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy path.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

I believe the state office is in great shape financially. I sincerely hope that I have made a difference and that our churches will see the value of keeping a full-time director. I further believe there is complete unity of purpose and spirit on our Executive Committee. I will work with them to make the transition as smooth as possible. My desire is that the Executive Committee  would find a replacement and introduce him at the next state meeting (November 2019) and allow me to work with him until the end of next  year.

Thank you for allowing me to serve.
