It is always a joy to see God calling and leading His people. We are so excited to announce the Ordination of Tim Henderson to the Holy Order of Deacon in the Anglican Church of North America.
This Sunday evening, April 15, our very own Tim Henderson is taking an exciting next step in his calling into ordained ministry. Bishop Quigg will be ordaining Tim into the Transitional Deaconate to serve and learn the role as an Ordained servant leader. This ordination will be a small service held in the Chapel on Sunday at 5 pm. You are welcomed but not expected to attend.
Then, in October 2018, we will hold a larger service of celebration and ordination as Tim will be ordained to the Priesthood. We hope the whole church family will join us to celebrate, worship, pray for and pray with Tim as he moves into his new calling. Unlike this weekend, for his ordination to the Priesthood, we will have a reception to celebrate.
What does this mean for Church of the Holy Spirit? It means that we can celebrate with Tim and his family this new season of life and ministry among us. He is excited to continue to teach, preach and lead the staff and 20 Somethings as well as direct the Blue Ridge Fellows. You may also notice occasionally Tim wearing a collar, which is the outward sign of the new season of his ministry.
We celebrate these next steps in his life and ministry.
