Highlights from our May 9, 2015 Congregational Meeting
On Saturday May 9, 2015, Redeemer held its annual congregational meeting. Here are some of the highlights. To watch the videos shown on Prayer and the Ministry Year go to redeemer.com/May9.
Election of Associate Pastor
The Rev. Abraham Cho was elected as Associate Pastor and new East Side lead pastor. Since last September a search team has been conducting an extensive process to find a new East Side lead pastor. After much prayer and careful consideration that team recently made a unanimous recommendation to the Session that the Rev. Abraham Cho, assistant pastor of the West Side congregation, become the new East Side lead pastor. The Session is immensely pleased to announce they have, in turn, unanimously recommended Abe to our members at the May 9 Congregational Meeting and he was elected as an associate pastor and the lead pastor of the East Side congregation.
Loan Rate Modification
Church members voted unanimously to authorize the trustees to approve a loan rate modification for our W83 mortgage. This refinancing will reduce our interest rate from 4.75% to 4.25% resulting in significant annual savings.
All officer and trustee candidates, received at least 51% yes votes during the congregational meeting on Saturday! They have been voted in to begin a three-year term starting June 1, 2015, and ending May 31, 2018. Thank you for supporting and praying for these men and women.
Re-elected for a second 3-year term:
