In the president’s response, Pastor Dracket invited the members of the conference to continue building on the legacy established by the pioneers over these past 125 years. He also expressed his desire that the prayer of Jesus, ‘that we be one as He and His Father are one’, become a reality among the members of the church. He encouraged the millennials to reach their fellow millennials with the message of hope in a hopeless generation. In conclusion, he expressed, ‘May those who come behind us find us faithful’.
