Last night First Baptist Church of Jefferson (Ohio) voted to call me as their senior pastor and I have accepted their offer. As some of you know, I have been looking for a ministry position for several years and this comes as a bittersweet surprise. Our family is excited for this new opportunity but sad to be leaving Red Village. For the Phillips family, Sunday morning is our favorite time of the week, worshipping God, listening to his preached Word and being with people we know and love. Brenda and I will always remember Red Village as a place where we are not only challenged by sermons, but challenged by many young people devoting their lives to Christ through overseas mission.
We will be praying for RVC in the weeks ahead as the church embarks on a new era of impact with the blessing of a new building. We would appreciate your prayers too as we begin a new adventure in Ohio, which will be 20 minutes from Brenda's parents.
Our move date is May 29th and our house is for rent, so please contact me if you know anyone that would like to rent a house in Monona.
We love you and will miss you and thank God for you!
Kevin Phillips and family
