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.

Pastor Ryan Black
Well, here we are already, two months short of the Pastor Installation date back in 2010. Pastor Ryan Black exceeds our hopes in the fulfillment of God’s role for him here at the Cedar Springs Christian Church. It had been almost five years of inviting speakers to share from the pulpit when God sent Rev. Black our way. His goals and focus fit the character and focus of this little old barn chapel at 340 W. Pine Street. He is down to earth and presents the bible, verse by verse each week. Bible prophecy is a strong focus of his messages. He shares from the pulpit what the newspaper headlines proclaim that God foretold way back in the Old Testament of God’s word. These are amazing days! What would God have you do at this time in history? Perhaps you’d ‘fit’ by attending. Why not find out? Pastor Ryan’s Ordination service will be held on Nov. 6, along with a dedication service for his youngest children, twins, Caleb and Ella, siblings of Aubree. Afterwards there will be a lovely time of fellowship during our Thanksgiving potluck meal and the public is invited to participate in this memorable time in the Lord. Note: If you feel a call from God to labor for Him in Christian Ministry, and you need a place to serve, stop by and find out if you’ve found a home for your calling. Questions welcome, simply call: 696-1180 and please leave a message!
