The First Baptist Church of Cedar Springs is proud to announce the ordination of their Assistant Pastor, the Rev. Chris Howard, to the gospel ministry. Pastor Chris is in his sixth year of youth ministry with the First Baptist Church since graduating from Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvia.
The Ordination Service was held November 10, after a council, called for the purpose of examining the candidate, recommended that the church proceed with ordination. The charge to the church was brought by the Rev. Alan Moody, a long time family friend, and the charge to the candidate was brought by the Rev. Ken Riley, the Executive Director of Lake Ann Camp. The prayer of dedication was brought by the Rev. Dann Austin from Baptist Bible Seminary.
A Harvest Celebration Luncheon followed the service which was well attended by friends, family and members of the church family.
“We are looking forward to many more years of serving the Lord together here at First Baptist Church,” said Pastor Jim Howard.
