This past weekend at Living Hope marked a new season for our church. Our Pastoral Candidate, Rick Cochran, and his family spent time getting to know our church's leadership. Pastor Rick shared an inspiring message that encouraged all of us to continue walking into our Promise Land on Sunday morning.
Joshua 1:7-8 (NLT) says, to be strong and courageous, obey instructions, and then you will be successful. God doesn't want us to dip our toe in the water; he's looking for us to go all-in, to consecrate ourselves to His purpose. Sometimes God asks us to take steps of unreasonable faith so that He can work an unexpected miracle.
At the close of the message, Pastor Rick invited people to take the courageous step of faith in accepting Jesus and rededicating their lives to HIM.
On Sunday evening, the membership of Living Hope overwhelmingly voted to accept Pastor Rick Cochran as our new Lead Pastor! We welcome Pastor Rick, his wife, Nicole, and their family to Living Hope Church and are excited to begin this new ministry season together.
Pastor Rick's first official Sunday is November 1st. We encourage you to continue to pray for our church, our Pastor, and the Leadership team as we begin a new season of ministry and believe God to guide our steps to the Promise Land.
