What a privilege and honor it is to be your pastor. I celebrate who you are and your love for God. I appreciate the leadership of JP and his faithfulness as your pastor over the past years. You have been blessed. From the moment I heard of the prayerful decision of the Bishop and Cabinet for me to be your pastor, I have been giving thanks for you. I'm reminded of the words of the Apostle Paul to the church at Ephesus.
"I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God's people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you!" Ephesians 1:15
I look forward the days that are before us. May we learn from each other! May we grow in our faith as we "Honor God by making more disciples for Jesus Christ."
