This has been a week for our moving pastors. We had the following changes in the Pensacola District:
Dr. Jeff Spicer (Melissa) who served Mary Esther
Rev. Bob Bailey (Judy) who served Warrington
Rev. Connie Ragghianti (Al) one of our Deacons.
These persons have served the church faithfully and we wish them well in this new chapter in their lives.
Moving Out of the District:
Elizabeth Sullivan (Crosspoint) is moving to South Carolina to serve an appointment there
Rev. Lew Wilder (Crosspoint) serving the Choctaw Beach church as a retired status
Ebb Hagan (Jay) serving Chipley
Kathy Knight (Milton FUMC) serving Kingswood
We wish all these pastors the very best in their new appointments. They all have served us well!
Moving within our District:
Rev. David Cook serving both Cottage Hill & McDavid
Rev. Ted Johnson, who has been serving McDavid, will now be serving Warrington
We give God thanks for their ministry.
New to Our District:
Nathan Adkison serving as a Crosspoint Associate Pastor
Cecil Jackson comes to us from Dauphin Island and will be serving Jay
Dr. Sam Parkes come to us from Cloverdale in Dothan and will be serving Mary Esther
Steve Warren comes to us from St. Luke Enterprise and will be serving Milton FUMC
David Garvin will be joining the staff at Shalimar UMC as their youth minister
Please help me in welcoming all these new pastors to the Pensacola District.
Please join me in praying for the pastors and churches in our District where there are changes being made. I am thankful for each of you and for the great work you are doing. I look forward to another year of joining with you in doing Kingdom Work!
