Update on Pastor Joel
Dear Northland Family,
As you heard last weekend, Pastor Joel and Becky are transitioning from Northland because Pastor Joel has fulfilled his pastoral call. While we are saddened to not have them here every week, the elders have affirmed their decision and are praying for their next season of ministry.
We also want you to know that his last preaching weekend as senior pastor will be the weekend of September 30. In each of our worship gatherings, we will be celebrating them during and after each service. This is going to be a weekend you won’t want to miss!
I’m excited about our future together here at Northland. As we continue to remind one another, our mission since 1972 has been to bring people to maturity in Christ. Let’s continue to affirm that.
Change is in the air and we can’t wait to tell you more about that in the coming weeks.
P.S. If you haven’t posted a thank you note to Pastor Joel and Becky, you can do so here.
Dear Joel and Becky
You have been such an encouraging presence to me and my family….through seminary, interning with the Northland counseling /pastoral ministry, having our son (now 22) and inspiring me toward and through my current work with incarcerated mental heath patients. You have always been witness to empathy and compassion, grounded in your awareness of God’s creation… nature, the arts, the physical sciences, psychology, world religion, cultures and history. You have challenged…no, invited us to be students, researchers and explorers for the sake of forwarding the Gospel of Christ in the amazing world; free of boundaries and beyond any walls we may find ourselves limited within. We wish you all the very best in your further adventures. May God richly bless you in your work and explorations further on! With deepest gratitude and love.
