I am so grateful for our wonderful-gifted, pastoral team. While
Janet and I have been away for vacation and family time in
Colorado and California, you have been blessed by two excellent
guest speakers, and Pastor Kevin Taylor. On this last weekend of
my time away, I again take joy in introducing Troy Maragos, our
Pastor of College and Young 20s Adults. Troy has been serving
with us for over a year and has already demonstrated his
God-given abilities in Mens Ministry, Bible & Life Groups, and
from the pulpit. We are blessed with his relocation from Chicago
to Naples after having served as a satellite campus pastor for
Harvest Bible Chapel led by Dr. James McDonald. Receiving his
Bachelors Degree from Wisconsin and his Masters of Divinity
from Moody, he is a blessed, biblical communicator.



Next week, we will offer another discussion time for those who
are interested and want to the hear explanation behind the
recent changes in our church Constitution and Bylaws. As you
may remember, we were ready to make a presentation over a
month ago, but wise input from those within the church and
outside both pointed out wording which should be added or
modied. The deacons ofcially recommended this Constitution
for a secret ballot vote on August 13/14, complying with the
30-day notice required in our existing 24-year old document. I
am grateful for your patience with us as we have sought to work
through this tedious process. Prudent congregations are doing
the same all over the country.
Thank you for praying for wisdom on behalf of our lay and staff
leadership. A seasoned pastor said it best, Praying without
ceasing equals keep buzzing the nurse! Those of us who are
sick need the Great Physician, Who not only came to call the
sinners, but Who also leads the righteous. Ask the Lord to give us
a spirit of unity as we prepare for great days ahead. As the apostle
Paul said, You started out only to do this work, but now nish
doing it as well (2 Corinthians 8:10, 11).
