Dear Hope Family,
I am writing this morning with great news!
When we experienced a transition in our Office Administrator position this past year, long-time Hope member and director of our Hope Springs ministry, Jeanne Lenham, graciously covered our gap, serving faithfully and sacrificially so that the work of ministry and daily administration of the church could proceed without interruption. She found that the uniqueness of the position matched her many gifts and interests, and we sensed a leading for Jeanne to remain in the Office Administrator position on an interim basis to discern if this could be viable work for Jeanne and her family on a longer term basis.
After months of working shoulder-to-shoulder with Jeanne and being blessed by her excellent work, I am thrilled to report that Jeanne has agreed to to continue to serve as our Office Administrator – no longer Interim! You will notice that the back of the bulletin has changed to reflect Jeanne’s “new” role, and I and the staff could not be more proud or grateful for the opportunity to continue working with Jeanne. This truly is God’s provision and kindness for our church family.
In this role, Jeanne has already brought us timely, thoughtful organization, a consistent, warm, and servant-hearted presence to the church office, and a commitment to maintain the current successes and a vision to improve and expand what needs to grow.
Please do pray for Jeanne and her family – that they could experience God’s grace and protection as they enter more fully into this crucial work and that they could thrive in the embrace of the Father for this season of their life together.
Grace and peace,
