COCISD welcomes local clergy to Ministers Roundtable 

Local ministers and church leaders joined Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD Superintendent Jerry Gibson for the first Ministers’ Roundtable of the 2015-16 school year at the Jones Educational Complex on Monday, Sept. 21.

Among the topics discussed were positive ways to work together, including targeting areas of students’ academic needs for tutorials at various churches throughout the community, and focused volunteer tutorials on campuses. Church leaders said they were pleased with the district’s new coaching staff and how they have worked to clean up the problem of profanity among student athletes, as well as how the new coaches were setting a good example.

Attendees included Fran and Lloyd Bowen of Center Hill Baptist Church, Tobey Clements of Magnolia Baptist Church, Dalton Currie of First Baptist Coldspring, Clyde Harden Jr. of New Destiny Fellowship, Charles Horton Sr. of St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church and Mariann Rayne of Paul Horton UMC. 

Gibson said the meeting was a success and plans to hold future Ministers’ Roundtable meetings twice a semester, four times a year. The meetings begin with dinner at 6 p.m. and are expected to last about an hour.

“We want to form a true partnership,” said Gibson. “The insight and support of our local ministries is greatly appreciated.”

The next Ministers’ Roundtable meeting is set for Monday, Dec. 7, at the Jones Educational Complex. All local ministers and church leaders are invited to attend. For more information, call Cindy Elliott at 936-653-1114.
