The Future is Now!

Dear Southwest Region Conference Family:

Christian greetings to each of you!

My wife, Danielle, and I, along with our three daughters, would like to thank you very much for your prayers, support, and words of affirmation given our most recent election as President of the great Southwest Region Conference! We are elated to serve you and solicit your continued prayers and support as we seek to serve God and His people, and collectively, tell a dying world that Jesus saves!

The question was asked of me, “Dr. Byrd, what do you plan to do as President?” My answer was simple, “Prepare people for the soon return of Jesus Christ!” With Pastors and church members alike working and praying together for this reality, I truly believe that the Spirit of God is going to be made manifest in copious fashion in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas!

There are four primary areas of ministry that we will emphasize:

  1. Evangelism
  2. Adventist Christian Education
  3. Media and Digital Ministry
  4. Youth and Young Adult Engagement and Retention

Our mantra is, “The Future Is Now!” Now is the time for our conference to realize the great potential that God has for His churches, His schools, His ministry, and most importantly, His people! I humbly invite you to be a part of this grand opportunity to do God’s biddings and share His love with others!

May God continue to bless you!


Dr. Carlton P. Byrd, President
