As your appointed leaders of this church, we are continually evaluating every ministry, communicating with the ministers and those involved in it, to discern the current state and its trajectory for the future. The Student Ministry is, of course, a part of that evaluation.
After much prayer and discussion, speaking with parents and volunteers, and working with Shelby Kohring, the elders have made the difficult decision that new leadership is needed for the Student Ministry. Effective today, February 21, 2021, Shelby is no longer our Student Minister.
We are grateful for the time and energy Shelby gave to this ministry over the last several years. His passion is evident and we love him, Jessi, and their beautiful family. We wish only the best for them moving forward as they continue their work in God’s Kingdom.
We will communicate with our Student Ministry families over the coming days and weeks regarding next steps for this ministry and ask for your prayers in this effort, as well as prayers for the Kohring family.
