- Al Reimche to President, Oregon Conference, from Oregon Conference VP for Administration. Here is a note from the Oregon Conference website– Al Reimche accepted the invitation to serve as President of the Oregon Conference on Monday February 23, 2009, and will assume responsibilities as President immediately.
Reimche has not only served as Vice President of Administration at the Oregon Conference for the past 7 years, but has a diverse record of ministerial service over the past 35 years, serving as Ministerial Director, Senior Pastor, Youth Pastor, and elementary teacher through out the Northwest and Canada.
Upon his acceptance, President Reimche stated, “After taking time this weekend with my wife, Beth, for prayer and processing our thoughts, I have accepted the invitation to become the next President of the Oregon Conference. I accept with excitement-because of the strong team we have throughout the Oregon Conference, but also some apprehension-because I believe decisions made and directions taken in the coming months and years are crucial to God’s calling. Overall, I am confident of the Lord’s calling, and am reminded of the passage in Philippians 1:6, ‘…being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’ God has tremendous plans for His work here in the Oregon Conference, and I want to join you right in the center of His will as we together carry out His commission.”
