Saturday October 14th Holmen Baptist Church hosted an ordination council for their assistant pastor, Ben Vahle. The council included eight pastors and four deacons from the church. Following a question time of the candidate’s testimony, call to ministry and doctrine, the council recommended that Holmen Baptist Church proceed with ordination. Brother Vahle did a fine job of presenting his doctrine and answering questions by the council.
On Sunday for the AM Service Pastor David Vahle of Rustic Hills Baptist Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and father of the candidate, preached the ordination message. Following the message the ordained men and deacons laid hands on the candidate with a closing prayer.
The church hosted a delicious carry-in dinner after the morning service. It was a blessed day of recognition of the gifts of ministry of Pastor Ben Vahle, and the anticipation is that God will grant the Vahles a long and fruitful ministry for the Lord Jesus Christ.
