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. Don went before the Area Commission and we ar pleased to announce that they have granted Don a 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. 

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