After much prayer and conversation with the church board and staff, Rev. Shawna Songer Gaines has accepted the call to be the pastor of Trevecca Community Church.
The process delineated by the manual of the Church of the Nazarene has served us well. The leaders of our church, district, and denomination are pleased and excited that God has led in this direction.
We started this pastoral search with the following verses:
Psalm 37:3-5 (NASB):
"Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the LORD; and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He will do it."
As we move toward Step #10 in our Checklist, let us "Trust in the LORD", "Delight ourselves in the LORD", and "Commit our ways to the LORD". We serve a faithful God.
Thank you for your prayers for our church and our new pastor. Please continue those prayers during this transition for both our church and for her family.
We are privileged to be the church home of some the top theologians, evangelists, and missiologists in the Church of the Nazarene. They faithfully serve our church and community by providing theological guidance and wisdom to the church leadership.
