Pastoral Search Announcement
Based on the work and recommendation of the Pastoral Search Team and after conversing with and interviewing the candidates, the Elders unanimously recommend that Jeremiah Meadows be called as our Pastor.
Jeremiah is a 2011 DTS graduate with a passion for teaching others about Christ. Music, food, and sports are among his other interests. He and his wife, Lexi, a biomedical engineer, will welcome their first child in August. Mark your calendars for May 19, when Jeremiah will preach and we will vote on extending our call to him to become Senior Pastor of Skillman Bible Church.
A Meet & Greet will take place on Saturday, May 18 from 4:30-6:30 in the Cook Building, allowing everyone an opportunity to get to know each other in a relaxed setting.
Please see the prayer guide in the Monday E-mail for suggestions as to how we can pray for the Meadows family and for our church. The elders are available to answer questions throughout this process.
A note about our church...
In the very first psalm, God inspired the psalmist to illustrate the one who follows Him, the one who delights in His word, with the imagery of a tree firmly planted by streams of water. This tree flourishes and prospers because it drinks from a rich and abundant source of life-giving nourishment. It's everything it was designed to be--tall and strong, firmly grounded and fruitful--because its roots run deep.
We've borrowed the image of a tree from the psalmist to describe us. Like a tree, we see Skillman Bible Church as a community grounded in the faith (the roots), growing together (the trunk), and reaching the world (the branches). All that we do at SBC is designed to ground us, grow us, and enable us to reach out to others and see the good news of Jesus Christ prosper--to make God known, to increase His reputation.
As we follow Jesus together, we should expect these things to be true of us. We're digging our roots deep--grounding our community in the gospel, in God's word. We're growing together--developing intimacy, strengthening unity, and increasing in maturity. We're exercising our God-given gifts and using our resources to reach the world (both at home and abroad).
Grounded, growing, reaching. That's how we understand what it means to follow Jesus at SBC. I invite you to join us--to plant yourself in our community, to become a part of the process. We're all in process here. None of us is a finished work. But we're doing this thing together, by God's grace, "until we all attain to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13).
Skillman is excited to have the Zomi Christian Church, a Burmese congregation ministering to the Zomi people of Dallas, meeting on our campus Sunday afternoons at 2:00 p.m.
