On Sunday, April 3rd, after a lengthy journey of searching and praying for God's man in God's time for a senior pastor, Park Fellowship members voted unanimously to call Scott Peterson of Stanchfield, Minnesota as our new senior pastor, an invitation Pastor Scott joyfully accepted.
Scott's many qualifications and gifts of shepherding, preaching, discipling, and a shared commitment reflected in our statement of faith supported our decision to move forward. Scott has a humble heart and desire to love and grow God's church, and that gave us confidence God has answered our prayers.
Some of Scott's ministry experiences include: pastor of discipleship and evangelism in a Converge church, pastor to children and families, pastoring a Cambodian church in California plus 2 years of missionary experience in China.
We feel blessed and give thanks to our Heavenly Father that He brought Pastor Scott and his wife Stephanie to Park Fellowship Church.
A message from Pastor Scott
First, Stephanie and I want to thank God for leading us to the people of Park Fellowship. We sincerely believe we are right in the center of His will, and that is a tremendous feeling! Second, we want to thank the pastor search committee for their diligent and thorough efforts in seeking God and His direction. Last but certainly not least, we are thankful for the people of Park Fellowship who felt led to vote with a "Yes" for me to be the next Senior Pastor; I am incredibly humbled and exceedingly joyful! I look forward to getting to know all who currently call Park Fellowship their church family AND all whom God will bring as He builds His family in depth and in breadth, through discipleship and evangelism.
