Pastoral Installation at Victory Baptist Church in Oshkosh

Sunday afternoon November 8th Victory Baptist Church installed their new pastor, Brett Shafer. Brett and Katie have served in an assistant position in a number of WFBC churches including Faith Baptist Church in Oconomowoc and Calvary Baptist Church in Kaukauna.

The installation service began at 3:00 PM and included several hymns, scripture reading and concluded with an installation charge to the new pastor. During the service former pastor Paul Stephens provided a message as charge to the church and Pastor Jim Stevens from Faith Baptist in Oconomowoc gave a charge to the new pastor. The service was followed by a dessert fellowship in the fellowship hall.

Pastor Paul Stephens has faithfully served the church as pastor until health issues caused his early retirement this year. He has suffered an extended period of health challenges over the past 2-3 years. At this time Paul and Ruth will be staying at Victory to continue to assist in the ministry there.
