Nathan Pylate's Ordination Service

Sunday, April 11, 2010 will be a big day for New Life Church and for Nathan Pylate. We are going to ordain him in an ordination service at the Robinwood Campus at 5:00pm.

Ordination, as practiced today, is a professional credential recognized by the broader community. It confirms that we recognize in him the gifts and calling that God has placed in his life that make him well-suited for gospel ministry.

I trust the service will be meaningful not just as an encouragement to Nathan, but also to the church as we recognize the additional demands and responsibilities on pastoral ministry. Just in case a service will not be sufficient encouragement, we will share a meal following the service as a time to celebrate!

Dr. Randy Roberts from Western Seminary will deliver the charge to the candidate. I will give the church a charge, an encouragement about what this kind of event means to a church.

I hope you can come and enjoy God's work in our church and in Pastor Nathan Pylate.
