Next Sunday, we’re going to be officially welcoming Jason and Stephanie Eddy to the staff at Bethel. Many of you already know Jason and Stephanie and some of you were around when Jason served us as our interim youth pastor back in 1999. They are coming on staff, through a program called Pas- tor in Residence (PIR). Jason will not be on our budget, but raising support from friends and family members. This is a temporary position for them as they transition back into full-time ministry. Jason will be helping in the areas of administration, discipleship and visitation. Begin praying for Jason and Stephanie and their three daughters, Grace, June and Ruth as they join our pastoral team for this season.
