While Lari is on Sabbatical, we are blessed to have as our Acting Regional Minister the Rev. Dr. Marshall Dunn. As many of you know, Marshall recently served as Temporary Associate General Minister and Vice-President of our denomination, and before that served for 31 years as the Senior Pastor of University Christian Church in Hyattsville, Maryland. According to Rev. Dunn, "I want to do my very best for the regional church I love. It has done so much for me through the years and it's my privilege now to give something back."
