Just about 17 months ago, Pastor Brent announced that he’d be leaving his position as pastor. We put together a search team, made an announcement to the denomination who sent resumes to them, and the long process of finding a new pastor began.
Eventually, the search team brought a name to us- Beatrice Radakovich, a young woman from Chicago. We brought her to Wichita to preach on Palm Sunday. The day before, she’d met with members of the leadership team & the church staff, along with a couple of groups of members of the congregation. After her sermon on Sunday, we had a meeting where comments & concerns were aired, and a vote was taken. While not a unanimous vote, only 2 votes were cast against calling her as our new pastor.
This Sunday, Mother’s Day, she’ll be inaugurated as our pastor.
Welcome Pastor Bea! It’s going to be great seeing what God’s got in store for us under your leadership!
