The Rev. Dr. Thomas R. Jewell will retire in December of 2012 after nearly 20 years as regional minister for Oklahoma. He said, “The years that I have spent as Oklahoma Regional Pastor have been some of the most exciting and challenging years in ministry. Working with congregations and pastors to grow and strengthen the Church of Jesus Christ has been most rewarding. The hundreds of Disciples that I have met along the way have shared with me a depth of commitment that is exemplary. The love shared so graciously with me, Kay, and our family has been a blessing. We have come to love Oklahoma as our home and plan to continue to reside here.”
A celebration of his work is set for Nov. 17 at Southern Hills Christian Church in Edmond, Okla.
