You can love everyone!

A District Apostle is responsible for the leadership of the Church, the development of the congregations, the purity of the doctrine, and that there are enough ministers. On Sunday, 3 June 2018 Chief Apostle Schneider appointed a new leader for the district of Switzerland.

“You will not be loved by everyone. You will not be able to please everyone. For some you will not do enough, for others too much. For some you will be too fast, for others too slow,” Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider said to District Apostle Jürg Zbinden (60). “But you can love everyone. And that’s what matters!” he made clear in closing.

District Apostle Zbinden succeeds District Apostle Markus Fehlbaum, who retired in the same divine service.
