Hello New Hope family!
We are excited about where God has led us, and about recommending Dick Jaques (along with his wife, Nancy) for the Lead Pastor position at New Hope. God is faithful and He has led us to a humble, gentle, and wise couple! In case you missed the announcement at church on Sunday, you can find it online (along with a link to some of his sermons) here:
Please feel free to watch the announcement, listen to his sermons, ask questions and offer feedback to the elders.
We continue to be so very grateful for the amount of prayer that you all have put towards this process. We have felt encouraged and upheld by our church family. Knowing that you are praying has given us confidence that God's plan is in motion. Would you continue to pray for Dick and his family? and for our church body? The 30-day Prayer Guide would be a great resource for the coming weeks. Imagine what God might do if many of us asked him for these things! We encourage you to pray them on your own or to gather with people to pray together as we anticipate his arrival.
Thank you church. It is a joy to be with you in this journey.
