Old News – New Pastor

Well I guess since it’s been announced Sunday morning in our congregation I can put in on here – it is likely old news to most people who frequent this place, but our church family has taken the final step(almost) in hiring a new pastor. Scott & Amy Landry will be coming to Yellowknife in a few weeks for a visit, and barring any really significant problems for either them or us, like them being allergic to mosquitoes or us not liking their hairstyles – they will be moving to YK sometime in August.

I don’t know Scott & Amy, but I’m really excited how everything worked out. I am totally confident in the process and effort our search team put into this decision – and it sounds like Scott and Amy will be a great fit for our group. They are Ontario people (which I’ll work at forgiving them for – kidding of course) and are moving from a Youth Ministry position in Colorado.
It has been about a year and a half since Steve & Rebecca moved away, and it’s been a tough year for the church I think – probably pretty normal for a church with a long term pastor leaving, but still tough. At some points I didn’t have much hope that someone new would ever show up. I should have had more faith (as is often the case), but we ended up with two very strong candidates in the end – I don’t think our congregation could have asked for better.

I’m excited about this new chapter in our history.
