Northern Ireland CallingFebruary 11, 2009
Well, the news is now out in the open. I have accepted the call to become pastor of Ballymoney Baptist Church, Northern Ireland.
For a bit of background to the church, this article chronicles the farewell of the previous (and founding) pastor Steven Curry, and actually gives a fair bit of detail about the church’s history. In the article, one of my soon-to-be fellow-elders is quoted to say:
“That respect and reverence for God’s Word, combined with rigour and diligence in preparation has been an anchor throughout his [Steven’s] ministry in Ballymoney, and I have no doubt will continue to prove a mainstay in the future as well.”
Pray that I will be faithful to, and worthy of, this legacy!
