It is with a heavy heart that I announce to you my resignation from serving as pastor of Mt. Nebo United Presbyterian Church, effective August 24, 2021. My final Sunday in the pulpit will be September 19, 2021 and my last day will be September 30, 2021.
Thank you for giving me the honor of serving as your pastor. For allowing me to be part of your stories as you all were a part of mine. It is a beautiful thing to have played a role in your stories. And for you all to have helped me realize the pastor God is calling me to be. That call is beckoning me to Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church where I will serve as their next associate pastor.
As this chapter in your story as a congregation is coming to a close, know that God is not done with you yet. You are in God’s care and always have been. The same Jesus who calls the church into being, who send the Spirit to empower and equip the saints for ministry, will walk alongside you as you seek to be a faithful church in this new time and place.
During this season of transition, you will be in my prayers, and I would appreciate you holding me in your prayers also. In the coming weeks I would like to get together with as many of you as I can to pray and say goodbye. Please feel free to reach out to me via e-mail email@example.com
