We have great news to share! This morning during our Congregational Meeting, our church family gave a 97% written vote of approval to our Elders to hire Greg Edens as our next Lead Minister at Bright Church. Greg and Amey have confirmed that God is calling them to Bright and have accepted the invitation to come. We praise God for His guidance and direction during this Succession Process and give Him glory for prayers being answered!
Greg will conclude his current ministry next month and will start at Bright on April 26, the day of our Haiti Meal Packing event. Jeff will be assisting with a gradual transition (several-month hand-off), preparing Greg to assume the full duties.

After the time of gradual transition is complete, there will be a special service celebrating Jeff’s ministry at Bright (and his 41 years of faithful ministry) at which time “the baton” will be formally handed off. At that time, Jeff will be given a 2-month sabbatical, he will step down as an elder, and then return to serve as a full-time Teaching Minister on staff at Bright.

Please continue to lift up prayers during this transition process. Jeff and Johnnie and Greg and Amey are excited for the future of Bright and all God has in store for His church in this community!
