Dear Friends of the North Alabama Conference,
Thank you for the warm hospitality and welcome that you have extended to my family and me since the announcement of my assignment as your bishop. I have been humbled by the many notes, emails and other expressions of welcome that I have received from you. Also, it has been a gift to have so many of you praying for my husband Lee, our children and me throughout these summer weeks of transition.
I feel privileged to join with you in ministry here in North Alabama. It is a joy to partner with you in living into our church’s mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Blessings to each of you.
Bishop Debra Wallace-Padgett
