Transition period and Pastor Search process

During the transition period, as Istrouma seeks its next pastor, a Transition Team will meet regularly for general church leadership and serve as shepherds for the church. The Transition Team will consist of the four current Lead Team Pastors and four church members, to be voted on by the church on Sunday, March 15. 

The Transition Team and Nominating Team will work together to appoint a Pastor Search Team. That team will then begin the search process and will make a recommendation to the church for the next Senior Pastor of Istrouma. The Pastoral Search Team will be approved and in place by the end of April, 2020.

Pastor Jeff and Mrs. Nell

Senior Pastor Jeff Ginn and his wife, Nell, have re-entered the foreign mission field! Jeff will serve as the IMB Affinity Group Leader for the Americas. Click here to learn more about this region of the world and the IMB efforts there. The IMB, or International Mission Board, is a Southern Baptist entity devoted to sharing the gospel with people around the world. Your gifts to Istrouma help to support the IMB and missionaries around the world. 

While we are sad to see the Ginns go, we are excited about how God will use them on a global scale to further his kingdom. They are living out our mission statement of glorifying God by making disciples of all nations!
