We welcome our new transitional Pastor and his wife, Ed & Elaine Jump.  

            Thank you for how warmly and genuinely you have received me as your Transitional Pastor.  You have already given great joy to my heart and I know we have a kindred spirit.  It blesses me greatly to have the privilege of guiding through this time of transition.

             “Transition is when you have to do what you don’t know how to do.”  Transition has been defined as the psychological process people go through  to come to terms with a new situation.

            The period between pastors should be treated as a time to:  define current reality, assess strengths and weaknesses, focus on the mission of the church, revitalize the church, and pray, pray and pray some more! 

            The first major step in the transitional process is to conduct “Listening Sessions”.  As transitional pastor I will sit down with small groups of church members to listen as members share the strengths of the church and the weaknesses of the church.  It will be time not only for me to listen, but for you to listen to one another.  Once all of the listening sessions are over, we should have a healthy appreciation for our past, a realistic look at today’s challenges, and a clear sense of the direction God is guiding us.

            No doubt the future is bright! 

            God bless each of you with His boundless love!

Pastor Ed
