Where's Pastor Scott?

It's not exactly "Where's Waldo?" But, it will have to do in a pinch.

As most of you know, I am on a 3-month leave of absence to be the interim pastor at Light on the Hill Fellowship in Oregon City and to shepherd their impending merge with Maranatha Baptist Church. This is a unique opportunity that has come our way in part because I am a trustee for the local association of churches for CB Northwest.

My primary responsibilities will be preaching on Sundays, elevating and uniting their leadership, shepherding the congregations to a point they can join with one another. You can follow some of what I'm doing on their new blog I've called "Bless Oregon City".

I will still be available for "light duty" at New Life Church. I'll be in the office and meeting with the staff on Mondays.

Tonight I watched a spectacular thunderstorm in Fort Collins, Colorado. I am at the CBAmerica Summer Leadership Summit. One of the blessings is that I got to have lunch with Al Russell the supervisor of all CB Chaplains. He was able to encourage me that he is doing what he can to support Chuck Searl.

Well, I guess we can share our pastor now and long as it is for a great cause...Oregon City bringing glory to God.
I believe they asked the right pastor to do the job! We do miss you though!
Looking forward to the churches standing on their own in His strength.
