A sad demise. . .
You can read about it all here. . .
One of their staff pastors and the one listed as Interim Leader, has spoken about the 70 life span of a congregation and the prospect of being reborn. This is a hopeful spin on a story filled with disappointment, pain, and bitterness. The point here is ampilifed by the fact that, typical of mega churches, this is an independent congregation and there is no real denominational leadership to assist them in their strife. Now they are down to some 1,300 - 1,600 in attendance (depends on who is reporting) and have laid off the majority of their paid staff, closed satellites, and hunkered down to figure out if this parish has a future and what kind of future that might be. . .
They are advertising for a Senior Pastor so some of you might apply?!?
