We already miss Pastor Chris and his family very much. Please continue to pray for them as they transition to the new areas of ministry God has for them.
Many of you have been asking what our next hiring plans might be. We believe that we need to focus on our Children’s and Family Ministries. The Mstar Kids team is doing a fabulous job with part-time staffing and we have had a vision for a long time to strengthen this important ministry with a full-time pastor/director. Many research groups have concluded that the overwhelming majority of people will make a decision to follow Jesus or not by age 12. It is mission critical to reach children with the good news of Jesus and also empower parents to be the primary faith trainers of their children.
The plan is to reallocate any available funds toward filling this important and currently missing position on our team. We will keep you updated on progress as we pray and search for the right person and keep an eye on our financial budget. Chris’ responsibilities have been divided up amongst the current leadership team and we have good plans moving forward to continue the important work that he did here.
