Last Sunday, July 16, Pastor Ryan Mustered preached in both Watseka and Ashkum as a candidate for Trinity's lead pastor position. Following an afternoon Q&A with Ryan and his family, Ryan was confirmed by unanimous vote of the members present at the special business meeting! We are thankful for God's leading in this process and are excited for Pastor Ryan to begin as lead pastor on August 21.
Ryan's first Sunday to preach is tentatively set for September 3. Please continue to pray for Pastor Ryan, his wife Malinda, and their children: Zach, Hannah, Lydia, and Caleb,as they make the transition to Iroquois County and Trinity Church!
