New Assistant Pastor at CCP
Dearest CCP Flock,
I am delighted to report that the Lord has brought us our next assistant pastor, Mr. Michael Bauer (29 years of age). Michael and his wife Sarah have been married for five years, and are expecting their first child in September. Michael graduates this week from Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC. After graduating from Lancaster Bible College, Michael worked for two years as an administrator for the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals. The past three and a half years, while earning his M.Div. at RTS, Michael served as an intern working with youth and families at Coddle Creek ARP in Moorseville, NC.
Michael has a heart for the Lord, a passion for the Scriptures, a devotion to the Church, and a love for the lost. I really look forward to working with him. He will begin the ordination process with Lowcountry Presbytery this fall. The Bauers will move to Mt Pleasant on July 1st.
Here is a word of greeting from Michael to our congregation:
Dear Christ Church Presbyterian Family,
Sarah and I are so very excited that the Lord has called me to serve as your Assistant Pastor! We are incredibly grateful for you and humbled by this wonderful opportunity. We loved being able to meet some of you when we visited a few weeks ago, and are looking forward to meeting all of you and getting to know you all better as we serve amongst you. I know that the Lord has led, trained, and prepared me for this position, and I am eager to be able to minister to all of you.
We cannot wait to move to Mount Pleasant and begin our ministry at Christ Church.
Thank you, and may the Lord richly bless you!
Michael and Sarah Bauer
