Welcome Jan King, our Interim Pastor

 

Jan King has accepted the Leadership Team’s call to be our Interim minister. The start date is Monday, October 15.

Jan comes to us from the Bedford Church of the Brethren, where she is a half time Pastor.

She began her ministry by working 15 years as the Executive Staff for youth for the Atlantic Northeast District (our district). She was chaplain for a few years at Cross Keys Retirement Center in New Oxford, PA.

For 11 years, Jan worked for the General Office of the Church of the Brethren as the congregational Life Coordinator for the East Coast.

She was a full time pastor for 5 years at Woodbridge Church of the Brethren before coming to the New Bedford congregation.

Jan’s husband, Scott, is a retired School Superintendent. Jan’s kids and grandkids live in Harrisburg and Annville. We look forward to getting to know both of them.

Jan fills a 3/4 interim pastor position here. She will work for us 3 days a week and preach Sunday mornings. Jan has been contracted for a year. We hope within that year we will have called a full time pastor. There is a 30 day notice clause in the contract that can be used by either the church or the interim to negate the contract.

The Search Committee is STILL searching for our full time pastor. We are currently reviewing profiles and will interview candidates that interest us. Jan’s hiring does not stop the search process. We are continuing full speed ahead. Prayers for a good match are much appreciated.
