A New Pastor at Faith Baptist in Portage

God has directed Jonathan Robertson and his wife Hope and their two children to the ministry of Faith Baptist Church of Portage. On Sunday June 5th we were able to participate in an installation service. The new pastor taught the adult Sunday School class, I preached in the morning service and pulpit supply pastor for the past 12 months, Randy Hibbs spoke in the afternoon installation service.

An added blessing was the presence of two related families who participated with special music in the services. The Doyle Robertson family did several special numbers. Brother Robertson is Jonathan’s uncle and they are on the summer staff at Camp Chetek. Also Dr. and Mrs. Monty Budahl were present and provided special music for the afternoon service. The Budahls are the parents of Hope Robertson.

The families of the church provided a delicious lunch following the morning service. The Robertsons are in the process of purchasing a home and Brother Robertson recently received his Master of Theology (ThM) degree from Detroit Baptist Seminary. We wish the Robertsons a long a fruitful ministry in Portage.
