Since we have started our Entrust program, Rocky Creek has been blessed with some great pastoral residents and college interns. Stephen Forrester has served as a pastoral resident and has now completed our requirements for ordination.
Stephen Forrester’s churchwide ordination will happen as a part of both English morning worship services on Sunday, May 19th.
After continuing pastoral training and serving in different capacities, our pastoral staff served as an ordination council in which we sought to affirm what God had already done. After assessing Stephen’s doctrinal stances and devotional practices, we wholeheartedly believe that God has called Stephen into the ministry. We are eager to see all God continues to do through him. Ordination is a wonderful next step for him as he prepares for full-time vocational ministry.
Please continue to pray for Stephen, Lauren, Owen, and Emmett as they serve in the ministry now and prepare for what God has in store in the years to come. We look forward to sharing this special moment with our church family this Sunday.
