Changes, changes and more changes!

Sometimes change is good. Sometimes those changes hurt our hearts. This time it is a combination of both!

We celebrate the retirement from our Board of Rev. Dr. David Tabor of the Holston Conference as he is now being reassigned to parish life!  Thank you for your many years of service and we wish you every blessing moving forward.

We also celebrate with our outgoing board member, John Davis, on his new job out of state. We celebrate our newest board member, Mr. Jim Bailey, who will finish Mr. Davis’ term. Both men are attorneys and we are delighted that they have offered their willingness to GraceInside.

We celebrate Bill Twine’s 30 years of service as a chaplain with us. He is retiring. Ordinarily, we would be bereft at his absence and the wealth of knowledge he takes with him. Happily, however, we get to celebrate his continued service as our Supervising Chaplain in an expanded role. We delight that his years of experience are still available to GraceInside!

We also have several new chaplains to celebrate!

Rev. Edmund Mensah has come to join the GraceInside family at St. Brides Correctional Center.

Rev. Richard “Ritchie” Johnson has come to join the GraceInside family at Bland Correctional Center.

Rev. Nicholas “Nick” Meyer has come to join the GraceInside family at Coffeewood Correctional Center.

Welcome, gentlemen!

We also have a few transfers to celebrate. Sometimes God calls our chaplains within our GraceInside family from one congregation to another.

Rev. Robby Burke continues his service with a new chapter in our GraceInside family at Augusta Correctional Center

Rev. Paul Ritter continues his service with a new chapter in our GraceInside family at Keen Mountain Correctional Center.

 

With these changes, we celebrate what God is doing and will do for the hearts who need Jesus in prison!
