Tyson pronounces his first benediction.
The Presbytery wishes to welcome to its membership Tyson Turner of Christ the Word PCA in Toledo, OH.
Tyson has attended Christ the Word with his family for some time. He then felt called to the ministry and trained with the pastor's college at CtW. At the last meeting of the Presbytery he sustained his ordination exams and these pictures show his ordination service.
We pray that the Lord will abundantly bless his labors as Tyson has been called to serve in a part time capacity at CtW.
The commissioners of the Ohio Presbytery gathered together today at Zion Church in Winesburg, OH to conduct the business of the church. As always the time proved profitable for work and camaraderie. As always, along with the docket items there was a good deal of fellowship and brotherly jocularity!
Providence Presbyterian Church in Pataskala, Ohio (east of Columbus), initiated a Bible study in Mount Vernon, Ohio. Teacher Sacha Walicord of that congregation was teaching at a university there. He saw no Reformed churches in the area, so with his session’s approval he began a Sunday evening Bible study.
The group grew quickly. Four OPC families who live near Mount Vernon have become part of the work. Two are from Providence Church, and two have come from Covenant Presbyterian Church in Mansfield. In March, the group was received as a mission work of the presbytery and became known as Knox Presbyterian Church.
As of July 1, Sacha will focus his labors on ministering to this new group, which numbers about fifty. Larry will be encouraging Sacha and the mission work and serving on the overseeing session.
