Lagniappe: Our Ministers

Sometimes we take very important items for granted. At FBC Covington, one of those areas is in assuming everyone knows the ministers on our church staff. Since that obviously is not known by everyone, let me take this opportunity to give you that information.

At the moment, we have 10 fulltime ministers for our congregation. Our current ministers have a combined 166 years of service to FBC! That blows my mind.

Next week we will present a prospective preschool minister who is being recommended by the pastoral team and the personnel team of FBC. We will vote on this recommendation Wednesday, March 13th at 6:45PM in the Fellowship Hall.

Developing staff is a continual responsibility at any church. Please pray for other new Pastor team members who will be presented in the months to come.
