During the January 4, 2014 church business meeting, it was voted to extend Licenses to Preach to five members. Two of the members, Becky Van Horn and Johnny Long, were present and given licenses to encourage the development and use of their gifts for preaching and related ministry. Three other members who are currently in a pastoring role, Judith & Joel Houts and Ray Peterson, were granted a similar license including additional pastoring responsibilities such as administering communion and funeral services. Although they are still members of our church, Judith and Joel Houts are currently pastoring in Puerto Rico and Ray Peterson is assisting with pastoral work in Albion, Wisconsin. We are happy for these people as they utilize the gifts and opportunities God has given them!
