PASTOR JEFF IS GOING ON SABBATICAL ON AUG. 19
From Pastor Jeff: I can’t believe I am now entering my 14th year here at MCC! (That’s a total of 20 years including my “first stint” as well!) It is such a joy and honor to serve as one of your pastors. I am daily blown away with all of the blessings I receive from you as a church. #luckiestpastoronearth! One amazing thing about MCC is its heart to make sure that our pastors serve and lead out of a “full tank.” This vision is lived out in many ways including through our sabbatical policy. It’s my turn to take an intentional time away from day to day ministry for restoration, reflection, refreshment, and professional development. I will miss you, but will be back before we know it! Please pray with me as I seek Jesus, rest in him, and allow whatever work he wants to do in me during this season.
