A Retrospective On Six Years

“I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding.” –
Jeremiah 3:15

The Board of Managers (BOM) thanks the Lord for the many contributions of the entire ABC WI community over the past six years in response to Rev. Dr. Marie Onwubuariri’s leadership and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We celebrate how God has worked through Marie and Franklin to touch every dimension of regional life, leading our beloved region to become stronger, more united, and more faithful to Christ.

Dr. Onwubuariri has faithfully led the region through a defining period in its history. Like the chiefs of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32), she has demonstrated an understanding of the times and has known what to do in making a timeless mission – sharing the gospel of Christ, encouraging each other in our faith, and sharing our resources in witness and mission – timely. The BOM is grateful to Dr. Onwubuariri for her sacrificial service in and through our region and the ABC USA. Because of her wise and strategic leadership, we are confident that our region will continue to thrive in the years ahead.
