Licensed Minister of the Gospel

With gratitude to the pastors and elders of College Church in Wheaton, I want to let you know that yesterday the Council of Elders approved my candidacy to become a licensed minister of the gospel. With this title, I am not taking a full-time position as a pastor of any church. Rather, this recognizes what I have already been doing in my various responsibilities and puts me under pastoral supervision, with a view toward continued growth and openness to new opportunities to serve the church. The licensure is for a three-year term. It’s a great honor, and an even greater responsibility. May the Lord empower and guide this little clay pot in this new chapter in my life.
