This is an exciting time for our church family and I have some news to share with you. The elders have been talking to a candidate about a 10-15 hour/week position with our worship team. The position is primarily about helping with music and tech needs behind the scenes. We are happy to announce that we have officially asked Chris Whitehurst to fill the position and he has accepted! Chris’s full time job is the Camden County High School band director, and as such he comes with a wealth of experience and know-how. He is an expert musician and his greatest strength is teaching others to be musicians and technicians. He loves the Lord and therefore has a heart to use his gifts in the local church. He has spent the last several years in a similar position at Open Door Community Church in Edenton.
He and his wife Mandy, and their two boys—Gavin and Alex, have sensed God’s calling to join our staff team and our community. We are thrilled to have someone of his caliber on board. Please join us in welcoming their family beginning in January 2015.
