Volunteer Minister of Men's Ministries

Rev. Don Kelgard

Don Kelgard has served as an Elder in this congregation and has also been wrestling with a nudging from the Lord to discern a call to ministry. With much prayer and conversation, our Ministry council/Board requested that the Area Commission on Ministry commission Don as First Christian Church's Volunteer Pastor to Men's Ministries. Don went before the Area Commission on 9/9/19 and I am pleased to announce that they have granted Don a 1 year ministerial commission through the Regional Commission on Ministry.

This holds all the rights afforded all ministers in the DOC. He is also bound by the same ministerial code of ethics as all ministersin the DOC. Don will be mentored and supervised by Rev. Ann Dotson and our Elders/Ministry Council as he grows in his calling and serves the Lord in this broader calling. We will install Don as our Volunteer Pastor to Men's Ministries in an upcoming worship service.

Congratulations Rev. Don! Can't wait to see how God continues to work in and through you!
