Greetings in the name of the Lord who was born in a cradle, died on a cross, buried in a grave yet rose Sunday morning with all power of both heaven and earth! It is certainly an honor to serve as Moderator of the Canaan District Association®. I have been humbled by the privilege of serving in this office as a representative of this district all over this great State of ours.

I am thankful to each of you for your love and support. I am also thankful to my Vice Moderators and the outstanding job that the Auxiliary leaders are doing. I am excited about the future of the Canaan District Association®, for with "God all things are possible."

The Canaan District Association® has achieved much with even more to come. As a body of baptized believers with the help of the Lord, we shall accomplish these things as His will permits. Together, we will keep our hands to the plow and help build disciples for Christ and His Kingdom as we await His return.

God Bless!

Dr. Rex Woodwork
