The elders of Grace Bible Church ordained me Sunday, January 18. I am grateful to all those who worked so hard to make the entire evening special, and humbled by the many testimonies of affirmation. I’m posting the slideshow, as well as the audio of the service, for those (like my mom, and some who were not able to attend) that may be interested.

The audio starts with a message about ordination by John Zimmer from 1 Timothy 5:22, followed by my brief testimony of salvation and call to ministry [starting at 15:51].
Next were numerous, gracious testimonies from friends, past and present ministry partners, and family [with the start time for each person in the brackets]:
- [28:01] Chuck Weinberg * [30:25] Marty Yorio * [32:56] Jonathan Sarr * [39:50] David Light * [44:14] Darien Bowers * [49:29] Andy Bowers * [53:15] Ron Regas * [57:47] Curtis Wentling * [1:03:46] Doug Main * [1:06:37] Jesse Martin * [1:08:44] Teresa Weinberg * [1:11:34] Justin Culbertson * [1:15:07] Gale Light * [1:16:16] Micah Lugg * [1:21:13] Tim Lugg * [1:23:13] Mo * [1:26:14] Misty Hehe * [1:28:10] Barbara Higgins * [1:31:20] Phil Johnson
