Last Wednesday, after prayerful deliberation, DCE Nick Moss declined St. Mark’s call to be our Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries. He feels the Lord still has work for him to do at St. Paul Lutheran in Lakeland, FL. We praise God for His steadfast faithfulness as we continue to find the person the […]
