The seasons change. As summer gives way to fall and fall yields to winter, in the same way God orders the life-cycle of His children. On September 11th the calendar shouted, “Jayboy, you are 65!” The years have wings and they have ushered in a new season for us.
After diligent prayer, thoughtful consideration, and consulting with wise counsel, Mary Ruth and I have determined this is the right time to start the process of handing the baton of Pastoral Leadership to a new Shepherd for our beloved First Baptist Family. My retirement will be June 30, 2020.
Nine by virtue of their offices, they include:
Chairman of Deacons
Chairman of Finance Committee
Chairman of Community Ministries
Chairman of Senior Adult Council
Chairman of Adult Choir
Chairman of Church Leadership Council
Chairman of Building Project
Representative of Student Choirs
Please use the online form below to select up to but no more than 10 members to serve on the Pastor Search Committee.
Ballots will also be available on Wednesday night, October 9 and Sunday morning, October 13.
