To all members of St. John’s,
We all need to jump with joy, if you still can, and sing the praises of St. John’s: we have a new settled pastor. On Sunday, May 23rd we overwhelmingly voted to hire Pastor Barry Bordenkircher as our new minister after he preached a wonderful sermon. Barry has a great resume with a variety of experiences and our Pastoral Search Team did an outstanding job finding him, going through the entire process and issuing a call to Barry, which he accepted.
We, the members of St. John’s need to welcome Barry and his wife Cheryl with the love and adoration that our church has known for many years. I feel that he has many ideas and programs that will benefit our church and congregation.
I want to thank our Pastoral Search Team who did an outstanding job, especially while working to find a new minister during a pandemic. We are extremely grateful that you found Barry and brought him to St. John’s. Be sure to thank Pat Goins, Laura Haas, David Stamm, Tim Barber and Kyle Taylor for all of their time and effort in finding a new minister for St. John’s.
Let us now move forward into this new era with joy and love for one
another and bless you all and God Bless St. John’s.
President, St. John’s UCC
