Well the big announcement this week is that our lead pastor, Jamie Long, is moving on from Pendle Hill Baptist Church.
And so 2009 promises to be a very interesting year for us here in Pendle Hill. You may recall I was elected to Ministry Leader for Mission / Evangelism at Pendle Hill Baptist Church three Sunday’s ago? Well my wife was elected Deacon at the same time, so, given the way baptist churches appoint pastors, her job has just gotten twice as big.
Jamie announced this to the leadership team the week after the new positions were bedded down. He is seeking a fresh challenge after 12 years with the church and says he will be finishing up in February. It was announced to the rest of the church last Sunday, so, now that its in the open, I know a few would like to know. I am sure we all have an interesting journey ahead of us.
