New Appointment for Pastor Tina

Big changes are ahead for Pastor Tina Harris and Grand Avenue Temple. Mary Sova, Chair of the Leadership Board at Grand Avenue Temple UMC, explains:

“This past weekend our board learned that our beloved Pastor Tina, who has faithfully & passionately served the Lord here at Grand Avenue Temple, has been called by Bishop Farr to a new and exciting assignment as the Director of Missions, Service and Justice Ministries for the Missouri conference in Columbia.  

Pastor Tina will begin transitioning to her new role later this spring, preparing to pass the baton to our next pastor.  We don’t yet know who is going to be our next Pastor, but expect to find out in the next six weeks or so.  We will share specifics & new information as we learn more over the coming weeks.

As unexpected and difficult as this upcoming change feels, I also know God is good – He loves Pastor Tina, He loves each one of us, and He has important work for us to do to share His love & advance His Kingdom. “
