Jim Bond, District Superintendent

The process of finding a new senior pastor is moving forward! Our Kansas District Superintendent Jim Bond is working closely with our recently elected church board to review potential candidates and resumés. Please remember our board and DS in your prayers as they seek God’s guidance, discernment and wisdom in this important work. Because of a variety of factors, we do not have a set timeline on when we can expect a new Senior Pastor. It’s more important that this position is filled with the right person rather than filled quickly.


Dr. Mark Hamilton

Dr. Mark Hamilton will serve as our interim preacher during this time of transition. Dr. Hamilton has extensive experience in the role of interim preacher and is a Professor of Communication at MidAmerica Nazarene University. Dr. Hamilton will handle much of the preaching responsibilities this summer as we go through this transition.


We’re excited about the many ministry opportunities at our church this summer and fall, and we want to encourage you and your family to stay connected! Make sure to save the dates on the following upcoming events and remember to be in prayer for our church’s leaders and future senior pastor!
