Justin Searles, our Youth Pastor, informed our Elder Board that he and Val are being called by God to plant a church in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.
They will be part of a church planting residency program with Reach Chicago which will help them prepare for this new mission and also will help identify an area where they will start their new church. His last Sunday will be on August 30th. We had to delay the announcement because of the last week’s mission trip that Justin was leading.
Join us this Sunday, as I interview Pastor Justin. He will share about how God led he and Val to this new journey and I will be teaching on managing transitions in life.
We will miss Justin, Val, Elijah, Luke, and Levi as they start this new adventure. But at the same time we can be joyful because we are sending them out as missionaries in starting a new church which God will use to transform lives! Let’s pray for Justin and Val as they move though this transition.
