I am so excited to announce the election of Nick Roark to be the next pastor at Franconia Baptist Church. Nick comes to Franconia from the staff at Capital Hill Baptist Church and previously Providence Baptist in Raleigh, NC. He is an excellent expositor of God's word and has a heart for God's people.
This of course is part of the transition process so that Carrie, the kids and I can prepare to leave for Mexico, Lord willing this summer. Nick will begin at Franconia on June 1 and I will formally step down as pastor by the 1st of July.
This was a bittersweet moment because we have come to love Franconia and always will. At the same time it was very sweet to see the unity of our congregation in what looks to be a very healthy transition. Praise God for all He has done at Franconia Baptist Church and we are excited to see what He will do through our family in Mexico.
