We all fear the unknown, whether that is in our professional careers, relationships, or big changes in our life. That’s a similar feeling that the staff and congregation had when Pastor Danny announced his intention to retire this August.
A verse that has been on our Pastor Search Prayer Team’s heart for our staff is Colossians 3:23:
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters…”
There is an understood degree of apprehension from the staff about what their role will be under a new pastor. There is also great excitement. The staff asks for prayer in dealing with the understandable fear of the unknown.
