The session of Grace Church called Curtis as an Assistant Pastor in 2009. Now that we have been here for some time, Grace's congregation voted Curtis in as an Associate Pastor in December. Not too much will change other than his title and he now has voting privileges on the session.
Because this is considered a new pastoral call, Curtis was installed as an Associate Pastor on January 30. It was an encouraging night to spend with our church family. We're very thankful for such a warm and loving church family here in Savannah! We are always praising the Lord for his provision in bringing us to this church. The Senior Pastor, Brannon, has been an excellent shepherd both to the flock at Grace and also as Curtis' boss/mentor.
A few weeks ago, we learned that Brannon will be serving our country by deploying for 3 months as a Chaplain in the National Guard. As we think about the ramifications of this news, we are excited for Brannon's ministry in the military and also for the opportunities that Curtis will have while he is away, even though it scares us at the same time!
