Important Message Regarding Ministerial Staff Changes

On December 3, we announced to you the retirement of Gary Ruffin as Minister of Education and Outreach effective on December 31, 2017. We will honor Gary in the evening of January 14, 2018.

Gary’s retirement brings about the opportunity for a restructuring of our staff which has been approved by our Personnel Committee.

On January 1, Brad Gill will promote from Minister to Students to Minister of Outreach. In this new position, Brad will be responsible for evangelism (including FAITH Evangelism), guest and member outreach, and new member assimilation. He will also be the minister on staff directly responsible for College Ministry. He will also be the direct supervisor to a new Minister to Students. We have begun the search for a new full-time Minister to Students.

Also, on January 1, Scott McKenzie will promote from Minister to Senior and Single Adults to Minister of Education. In this position, Scott will be the director of Sunday School and Discipleship. He will also be the minister on staff directly responsible for all adult ministries. He will also be the direct supervisor to the Minister to Children and the Directors of Preschool.

Andrea McKenzie has resigned from our ministerial staff. We appreciate her 9 ½ years of service and pray God’s blessing and favor on her life.

I know you will join me in praying for each of these families, specifically, as well as all of our ministry families.
