The Regional Board of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Florida has called Rebecca L. Hale as its transitional regional minister, effective April 9. Hale’s selection was confirmed by a unanimous vote of the board after recommendation from the region’s transitional search committee. Previously, Hale was acting regional minister for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Tennessee, and a consultant for congregational transformation and leadership development.
From December 2006 until May 2009, she was the transitional interim regional minister and president for the Northwest Regional Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). "We have been blessed by Rev. Hale’s leadership during the past three months, and appreciate her willingness to remain working alongside us in this shared ministry," said a statement signed by Brenda Caban, moderator, and Dawn Robinette, moderator-elect. "We look forward to her continued leadership in this challenging time of our region." Read Hale’s biography at: www.floridadisciples.org/r_hale.htm
