The Rev. Dan Morley, Missional Strategist and Superintendent for the North District, announces that the Board of Ordained Ministry has approved a personal leave of absence for the Rev. Jessica Goad at her request, per paragraph 353.2a of the 2016 Book of Discipline. Rev. Goad is currently serving at Federated Community Church in Flagstaff, AZ. Federated Community Church is an ecumenical shared ministry (2016 Book of Discipline paragraphs 207-208) with the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA), and the leave will be coordinated with the calling of the new Presbyterian pastor, in accordance with the polity of the PCUSA. Rev. Goad will serve as the Interim Pastor of Federated Community Church until the Presbyterian Church has secured an incoming pastor to serve, but no later than July 1, 2019. Please pray for Rev. Goad and Federated Community Church during this time of transition.
