The first set in the series of seminars, which has already been prepared by Ray Wooten, pastor of the United Church of God Birmingham and founder of United Christian Ministries, deals with the concept of "servant leadership" and provides practical applications for those who need guidance in assisting with a congregation.
The old model of the Worldwide Church of God's Spokesman Club, while valuable for speaking skills, is only a small part of the skill set that a church leader needs, Mr. Wooten said. He details the attitude of humility and self-sacrifice that has been so frequently overlooked.
The IBLC has asked Mr. Wooten to give the presentation because of his many years of service as a field pastor.

David Hulme's Response to Ray Wooten (December 29, 1995)
Ray Wooten's Response to David Hulme (January 12, 1996)
The first letter below followed the December 1995 UCG-AIA Ministerial Conference in which Ray Wooten was not voted to the Board.Also at this conference, there was a document with more specific doctrines ratified by 94% of the attendees (which were ministers only, either full-time or lay ministry).
Ray Wooten had previously come to understand some divergent views of church governance prior to the conference.These views contrast with an emerging UCG-AIA, which will tend to retain centralized doctrinal authority, much like the former WCG.
In the end, Ray Wooten and David Hulme are unable to resolve irreconcilable differences in governmental structure and organizational affiliation; as a result, a new UCG-AIA pastor was sent to Birmingham as of January 1, 1996, with Ray Wooten accepting a financial severance from UCG-AIA.In the end, Ray Wooten and David Hulme are unable to resolve irreconcilable differences in governmental structure and organizational affiliation; as a result, a new UCG-AIA pastor was sent to Birmingham as of January 1, 1996, with Ray Wooten accepting a financial severance from UCG-AIA.
The second letter is David Hulme's dismissal of Ray Wooten from the UCG,AIA organization.The third letter was written in final response to David Hulme in order to clear up certain misunderstandings David Hulme had regarding the UCG- Birmingham and Ray Wooten.

1. He states: "What we hope for, since it is essential to our beliefs as a congregation, is freedom to fellowship with, and even support, individual ministries as well as other organized efforts by crossing organizational lines."This comment reflects the reality that many former WCG members are coming to realize: there are members of different organizations who support similar if not identical doctrinal positions.Efforts by UCG-AIA to build one organization falls under the following paradigm: the body of Christ must be completely contained within one religious organization.Ray Wooten is more flexible on this point.
2. He continues: "This is my personal conviction as well.I don't intend to put demands on others."However, he does not consider that the ratified doctrines of UCG-AIA define demands to be put on others, and specifically the types of things that the organization would expect from new and continuing members (and certainly of its leadership).Now these things, again, do not seem like demands when you've been doing them for 20 years; however, the entire package can represent a major lifestyle change for a new UCG-AIA member.So, the UCG-AIA leadership should be willing to teach these demands to new Christians, and in this point Ray Wooten takes a step away from UCG-AIA.
3. He continues: "I am not preaching false doctrines.
That Ray Wooten would not agree with this governing fact, is itself, a demonstration that he believes in a false doctrine from the UCG-AIA point of view; however, on the other hand, what he says is the truth from the new WCG point of view.

Despite our differences, Ray, we certainly wish you well in your future endeavors.

Finally, you say, " ... despite our differences Ray, I wish you well in your future endeavors and if the truth of God's words is furthered by your efforts, we will rejoice with you.

Ray Wooten invokes this freedom in choosing not to merge his already existing church fellowship, UCG Birmingham, with the newer UCG-AIA.
2. He continues: "I reject the concept of the ministry functioning as a priesthood which has the sole authority and responsibility to preach that gospel from just a central location.
4. Ray Wooten concludes: " I would also like to extend this same wish to all faithful brethren regardless of their affiliation."

Comment: I agree that faith is critical to making government work.Accepting and working with a governmental structure is also a matter of faith also.However, Ray Wooten did not discuss the assumption is that the organized board and/or leadership have the biblical power and authority to make and enforce doctrinal decisions.
