For those of us who were Sunday School Superintendents or Directors of Religious Education or in Youth MInistry or Camping or any number of ministries in the ’70s-’80s Bp. Sorge encouraged the development of networks for support and continuing education for us across the church. The networks were coordinated by leaders (RRECs?) in these areas. Well done good and faithful servant. Rise in Glory.
