Update: On Sunday, October 4, we agreed together in the Lord to call Jason Read as our Executive Pastor. Our vote was overwhelming and Jason gladly accepted. Pray for the Read family as they prepare to sell their Louisville home and transition to Greenville. We will communicate with you in the days and weeks ahead as the timeline for the Read’s transition shapes up.
Our church has been blessed with godly Bible-led leaders for over four decades—men who guard the good deposit that has been entrusted to them. We are thankful for the church Christ has built and we are excited for our future together.
Your elders are excited to introduce you to Jason Read, our candidate for the role of Executive Pastor. Please start by reading the Letter from the Elders. That will orient you to Jason and to the process that led to this point and the process going forward, including your role. Then, acquaint yourself with Jason through the other materials we’ve included here. Finally, put some dates on your calendar, listed below.
