On behalf of the Board of Trustees of 217church, we want to extend a warm welcome to our new Lead Pastor, Kevin Namur. As part of the team that planted 217church, Kevin served under Pastor Josh's leadership as Worship and Youth Pastor. Since being called to serve as Princeton Alliance Church's Youth Ministry Leader, Kevin has continued to pray and hold a place for the 217 family in his heart.
In all of this, God is at work. Traditionally, the Lead Pastor search process takes 12-18 months. In less than three months, God made it clear that He had our next Pastor in mind, and this was evident throughout the application and interview process. While many qualified candidates applied for the position, Kevin proved to be uniquely equipped and especially passionate. His love for Christ, knowledge of the Word, heart for the congregation and community, and passion for the next generation were unsurpassed.
Kevin begins his official role as 217church Lead Pastor on January 2, 2020. Over the next four Sundays, sermons will be shared by select Pastors within the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Please join us in warmly welcoming Pastor Kevin, his wife Jessica, and children, Judah and Camila. We look forward to Kevin coming home, and we are sincerely excited for all God is doing in 217church.
