Dear Forrest City Family of Faith:
 
I am beyond delighted to be coming home.  "What do you mean Dixon, coming home?"
 
Well, anywhere the people of God are is home for me.  And, I am only a few years removed from my first appointment in the Arkansas Delta.  I am only one generation removed from the Mississippi Delta.    I was born and raised in Memphis.  My brother with other family and friends still live in the Memphis area.  I am coming home!
 
I am excited about joining you in ministry.  You will hear me say (probably more than once), that as a Christian and a Methodist, I sat in the pew for more years than I've stood in the pulpit.  That connection to the pew is still a big part of who I am and my personal mission statement:  To inspire, encourage, enlist, and empower every member to be in ministry.  
 
We are called to be disciples making disciples ... all of us.  In connection ... let's do it together!
 
peace and blessings,
Dixon
