Over the past few months, it has been an honor and blessing to serve as Pastor of Good Shepherd—even for a short time. I give thanks to God, and thank you for the support shown me during my ministry among you. Thank you for accepting me, for your understanding and forgiveness for any mistakes I may have made, and for expectations I may not have met.
On June 30th, 2021, when I end my tenure as interim Pastor here at Good Shepherd, I will be returning to the pew to continue to be in worship and in ministry among you.
We look forward to welcoming our new Pastor Navin Satyavrata, and his family on July 1st. Pastor Navin has been blessed with a unique set of gifts and talents that he will be imparting with us. He has a heart for missions and serving others. For this we are grateful,and look forward to being in ministry with this spirited man of God.
We have a responsibility, and I invite you to hear these words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew 10:40-41(NLT): “Anyone who receives you receives me, and anyone who receives me receives the Father who sent me. If you receive a prophet as one who speaks for God, you will be given the same reward as a prophet…”
I pray that we will continue to grow in love and respect for each other and in following Jesus Christ.
Peace and love,
