This morning I preached my final message as Senior Pastor of Stroudsburg Wesleyan Church before leaving for my one year study sabbatical to pursue a Doctor of Ministry Degree through Asbury Seminary's Beeson Pastor Program. Although it was an emotionally draining day saying goodbye, it's a relief to know that I have the honor and privilege of coming back to continue to serve this church that has literally become a family to me, Amy and the kids. The church provided a fabulous meal to say farewell to us until next May and to welcome Pastor Jason Argo, who is beginning his service as Family Life Pastor, and his wife Nicole. I am confident that the church is in the best of hands with Pastor Jason and Pastor Tim Gilbertsen, our Assistant Pastor. Below are pictures of our church family from both the 9:00 and 10:45 services this morning, as well as a Luchetti family photo taken today.
