A council was held on Saturday August 16th at Westside Baptist Church in Janesville where Bob Logan is the pastor. The candidate was Daniel who will be working with his parents Bruce and Ruth who have served for many years. A number of area pastors attended the questioning session and Brother Daniel did an excellent job of presenting his testimony and doctrine. The executive council voted unanimously to recommend ordindation to the Westside Baptist Church.
On Sunday evening August 17th the church held an ordination service for Brother Daniel. Special music for the service was provided by the candidate’s mother, Ruth, and by Deacon Dennis O’morrow. I preached the charge to the church from Colosians 4:2-4 with a charge to faithfully uphold Daniel and Hannah in prayer for their ministry. The candidate’s father preached the charge to the candidate from II Timothy with a number of key challenges from that pastoral epistle. Following the charges the deacons and myself and the candidate’s father laid our hands on him with Pastor Logan giving the ordination prayer. The evening concluded with a lunch in the church fellowship hall.
Daniel and his wife Hannah will serving with his parents for six months and returning to raise support for a future work. Pray for God to bless their work.
