  1. SENIOR PASTOR TRANSITION: The Personnel Committee intends to make two important motions in the church council meeting on May 8, 2019.
  • We move to make Hubert Ng the Mandarin Pastor effective July 1, 2019
  • We move to make Jonathan Szeto the Senior Pastor effective July 1, 2019

Prior to presenting this motion, the Personnel Committee invites everyone to a townhall meeting on Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 12:15 in the ETC to discuss the proposed staff transitions.  If you      have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the members of the Personnel Committee:  Jennifer Yee, Ken Huang or Phil Leung.

7.  PASTOR HUBERT will be taking a 6-month leave of absence from April 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019 due to medical reasons.  Please continue to pray for him that he can have the time to                              rest and recover.  During this time, Pastor Jon will resume the role as interim senior pastor and will oversee all our pastoral team.  The Mandarin congregation will also have the assistance of Pastor Jerry who is retired with many years of experience.  His primary role will be to preach and train our Mandarin congregation for the next 6 months.  Please continue to keep our pastors in your prayers.
