WV Flood Relief Update/Appeal from Men’s Ministry Director David Bounds

WV Flood Relief Efforts 2016-06-30

In the Rainelle, WV area, the UPCI West Virginia / western Maryland District is teamed up with Bro. Larry Williamson out of the South Texas District and Reach Out America. UPCI Pastor Chad Smailes is overseeing a 40,000-square-foot facility, which is the old Magic Mart in Rainelle. We need many volunteers right now to help unload and distribute all the product that's been brought in. If you can help in anyway it would be much appreciated.

Also tomorrow, Friday, July 1, Channel 17 of Fayette County will be having a tel-a-thon for the relief effort by Reach Out America and the UPCI West Virginia / western Maryland District for the Rainelle area. All proceeds will go straight to the Rainelle effort. We have a 26-foot box truck with a lift gate rented, and it will be located at the Kroger in Oak Hill, and anything that you could give for that effort would be much appreciated.

Also on Tuesday, July 5, UPCI Pastor Eugene Whetzel (district North American Missions Director) will be taking a crew of men to help rebuild the devastated church in Charmco, WV. We have 120 sheets of plywood that will be reinstalled in that facility (including sanctuary and Sunday school rooms). If you can join that crew it will be greatly appreciated. Contact info for Pastor Whetzel:

Also on Tuesday, July 5, UPCI Pastor Anthony Moss will be taking a crew of men to help rebuild the devastated church in Clendenin, WV. If you can join that crew it will be greatly appreciated. Contact info for Pastor Moss:

Update from Bishop Hudson

2016-04-10 Bishop David and Brenda Hudson

The following is the transcript of a "ONE CALL NOW" update from Bishop David Hudson, Superintendent of the West Virginia / western Maryland District, UPCI:

"This is the bishop speaking, and I wanted to touch base with our West Virginia & western Maryland pastors and ministers. Trust you are doing well and had good church yesterday. I have been making progress, for which I praise God. I had my first immune therapy treatment specifically for the melanoma stage four cancer on Friday. Everything went very well, but Friday night I had some reaction, which is part of the situation, and my legs were so weak I was unable to stand. The doctor suggested coming to ER to get checked out for sure, and everything did check it out. They have kept me here Saturday and Sunday, and I have regained about 75% of my strength back in the legs. Thank you so much for your continued prayer and thoughts. I do rejoice at the reports that I get of those being filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized. I believe God is continuing to do good things across West Virginia and western Maryland. We will continue to pray and believe God for great things as our camps convene for Sunday school and youth, and churches are having their vacation Bible schools. We pray blessings upon you and your family and churches. God bless! It's good to speak to you today. May you have a blessed week."

3 Key Reasons Why Our Departments Should Post on

Some of our departments have their own separate websites, which is fine, of course. However, all our departments are encouraged to also post their info about events, fund drives, etc, here on the main district website. Why? There are several important reasons.

  1. "Posting once publishes everywhere WV UPCI" -- Due to the built-in features of our main website, a single post here on will cause your message to automatically appear on three other sites: the WV District's Twitter feed, on the WV District's Facebook, and on the WV District's Google Plus page. That's four different points of contact from the effort of just one post. (See images below.) Want to post something? Click here now.
  2. "Central point of access" -- While many of our ministers and members know about this main website, fewer know about all the additional departmental domains elsewhere. When our departmental leaders and teams continually post here, that helps each department stay in touch with its readers, and it increases the chances of getting viewers to go to those separate departmental websites elsewhere.
  3. "WV UPCI's Automated Weekly Newsletter" -- Each Monday morning, an automated email newsletter goes out to our subscribers. It includes all of the new posts made during the prior week. Think ahead and post in advance, so your article's inclusion in the newsletter will be timed properly. Want to subscribe? Click here now.

Below are screenshots showing an initial post here (A), and the other three sites that get automated updates (B, C, and D) because of that initial post:


A single post (shown here) gets posted automatically to three other sites.

Tech: Why You Should Delete SnapChat (from

"I’ve been engaged in various forms of social media since AOL chat rooms in 1994. And I’ve never seen a more dangerous application targeting teenagers, specifically girls, than SnapChat. The premise of SnapChat is simple. You take a picture, send it to a friend, and they can only see it for up to 10 seconds before it’s deleted. And that’s where the lie begins. I want to be blunt. My goal for this post is to motivate you to delete SnapChat from your phone...." [read more].
