In an email sent Wednesday to members of the Grandville, Mich., church, leaders announced Kent Dobson had accepted the lead position.
Dobson served as a worship director in the church’s early days and has preached as a guest speaker in the months since Bell left. He is the son of Ed Dobson, pastor emeritus at Calvary Church in Grand Rapids.
“It’s been 7 months since we began our search for a teaching pastor, and we are so thankful for your prayers throughout this process,” church leaders said in the note to members. “As a long-time member and frequent guest teacher, Kent both knows and loves our community.”Dobson will be formally introduced on September 9 during the church’s 9 and 11 a.m. services.
My prayers are with this prophetic church an with their new teaching pastor!
