Lt. Colonels Philip and Deslea Maxwell, currently serving respectively as Secretary for Program and Assistant Program Secretary, have been appointed as Chief Secretary and Territorial Secretary for Women’s Ministries in the USA Eastern Territory. Effective February 1, they will assume their new appointments with the rank of Colonel.
Australian officers, the Maxwells have served in the Central Territory since November 2016 when they became leaders of the Kansas and Western Missouri Division.
While in the Central Territory, the Maxwells took Ephesians 3:20 as the verse for their ministry: “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
“It is difficult for us to leave as we have felt so accepted and supported throughout our time in the territory,” said Colonel Phil. “Yet, we are excited to see what God has in store for the future.”
