We have been seeking God’s direction for almost three years, as we have searched for a pastor to join our preaching and ministry team. Despite consistent, diligent, and prayerful efforts, and interviews with several men, we came to a point during the pandemic when it seemed God had closed every door. Then, this year, we found ourselves with another pastoral role to fill when Andy Lee announced his move to the mission field.
We are excited to announce that God has now provided two candidates! On June 7, the Session approved the call to Rev. John Fender and Dr. Ken McHeard to join the FPC pastoral team as Assistant Pastors. We believe these men are specifically gifted to help us fulfill our mission. John will serve in parish development, leadership development, and missions. Ken will serve as part of the preaching team and work with the discipleship team.
Two joint Sunday Schools are planned to provide more information.
