By: Pastor Carl Wilfrid, Interim Senior Pastor
My three-month assignment as Interim Senior Pastor came to a close on July 16. It was every bit the rich adventure I anticipated. Your generous and heartfelt welcome encouraged me; your excellent staff impressed me and proved to be excellent ministry partners; your energy and faithfulness as a community of Christ-followers amazed me.
I am deeply grateful to Pastor Frank for offering the opportunity, to the Council for “calling” me and to all you conversation partners who emerged as I had the opportunity to lead worship, teach, preach and provide pastoral care. I have long believed that God is, and wants to be, in conversation with each of us and that a pastor’s job is to stimulate and facilitate that conversation. I hope I have been able to do that.
