New Pastors in The Pas – June 2, 2019
We had a great celebration followed a Barbecue. Regional Director Dave Wicks led the service and then led Communion as part of the Commissioning. Debbie Grimes from the local Leadership welcomed Ray and Nida Walsh as their new Pastoral couple. Ray is an avid fisherman, so Debbie handed him a fishing rod alluding to him becoming a “fisher of men” and committed the church to “getting in the boat with them” to catch people in their community. Ernie Hanchuck, another local leader, prayed over Ray and Nida at the end of Communion. Dave challenged Ray and Nida to lead the church forward in Evangelistic growth, challenged the Board to support and stand with Ray and Nida and then challenged the congregation to pray for Ray and Nida and allow them to lead the church into a season of change as they build on the great foundation so well laid by Pastor Betty Olson.
