Pastor Brian Janssen resigns.

The serious side of Pastor BrianThe not-so-serious side of Pastor BrianIt has been a hard week for many as they have learned of Pastor Brian's resignation. He will be moving to Bethel Baptist Church in McMinnville to serve as the Pastor of Music and Worship beginning the first of February.

Brian's ministry has been much loved and appreciated over the past eleven years. Here is a link to his letter of resignation to the church. Here is Pastor Scott's letter that was sent in the same envelope.

We will have a reception for the Janssens to celebrate with them and to say thank-you on January 8th at 5:00p.m. at New Life Church Riverfalls. If you would like to begin leaving messages of appreciation as comments below, please do.

Brian and Kelly,
As hard as it is to see you leave I know that it is all God. And we know He gives good gifts! After all He gave you to us 11 yrs ago. As you leave you take a part of us. Just remember how much we love you. Bethel Baptist is sure in for a blessed surprise!

Dear Brian and Kelly,
What sad news this is to me. You both are such a wonderful and important part of our church. I will miss the gift you have of beautiful music arrangements, Brian. I have loved the mix of hymns and contemporary songs and how you arrange them every Sunday. And Kelly, I will miss the fun and honest heart you share. You are both so great! I also think Bethel Baptist is very blessed!
With love,
Melanie Creps
