An important update

This morning at church we announced that Matt French, our Pastor of Worship and Students, is having a life redirect.  Matt has recently told us that he is entering the United States Coast Guard!  His family’s new adventure will begin about mid-September.  Matt, Sheena, Austen and Silas have been at NCC for most of this year, and have done a great job serving God with all of us.

Although this news is sudden, God has guided us to a great transition plan.  Chris Whitehurst has agreed to become our part-time interim Worship Director.  Chris has already been working with the worship team and is a great fit for this role.  Chris’ full time job is Camden County high school band director.  On the student end, the Elders have asked Tim Chappell, who is our Kidz Community Coordinator, to also take on leading Student Rev in a part time position.  More details to follow.

NCC will certainly miss Matt and his family.  But we are grateful to God for how he is working out a transition plan that will safeguard NCC and our ministries.  Of course there are many details to work out, but we wanted to communicate this breaking news as soon as possible.

UPDATE:

The French family’s last Sunday will be September 11th.  Please join us in sending them off well!

That Sunday will also be Chris Whitehurst’s first official day in his new role as our part-time Interim Worship Director, and Tim Chappell’s first official day in his new role as our part-time Family Ministries Director. We are so excited to have these guys on-board!!
