We Should Do This More Often
Friday, April 27, 2012 Comments (0)
“We should do this more often” expresses my view of our FBC calendar for this Sunday evening, April 29, when our church will ordain Brett Brandewie for Christian Ministry.
Among Baptists, we ordain individuals to the Gospel Ministry when a person senses and responds to the call of God specifically to the vocational area of pastoral ministry in a church-related setting.
Brett Brandewie has been a member of First Baptist Church of Tallahassee since 2004, when he joined by letter. As a full-time student at FSU, Brett served FBC initially as a College Ministry Intern (December 2005 – April 2007), then as an Interim Youth Ministry Leader (April 2007 – July 2008).
Brett was faithful and effective in both areas, exhibiting the evidence of his calling and his strong interest in ministry even then.
Brett, along with his wife Laura, daughter of Steve and Jane Wofford, our Church Administrator and his wife, will graduate with a Master of Divinity degree from Beeson Divinity School of Samford University in May. Brett graduated FSU with a
Bachelor of Science double major in Psychology and Economics.
Since Brett’s departure from Tallahassee, he has served the Rocky Ridge Church of Birmingham (Associate Youth Pastor); Mountaintop Community Church of Birmingham (High School Ministry Pastor); and First Baptist Church of Hoover, AL (Youth Ministry Worship Leader).
Brett’s ordination to the Gospel Ministry will be this Sunday night, April 29, at 6:00PM in the Sanctuary.
Consider participating in our third Congregational Listening Session at 4:00PM in the Fellowship Hall. The session theme is “Leadership,” led by our Pastor Search Committee. Come to the Listening Session and stay for the ordination. Because… “we should do this more often!”
