"I know there are many signs of vitality already evident throughout this district on behalf of our Lord Jesus Christ," Malone said. "I will seek to celebrate those ministries and share those stories so as to inform and encourage other congregations.
"My first goal is to simply get to know the people who are the churches of the Knoxville District, along with each of the pastors and their families. I will seek a balance of support and accountability for both pastors and congregations. We all need someone who cares enough about us to both encourage us and challenge us.
"Most of all, I will invite all of us as Christians to be diligent in nurturing our relationship with the Holy Spirit who is God. As Jesus taught us, if we will really learn to love God with everything we are and learn to love people as he showed us, our vitality will cease to be an issue."
