On Thursday evening, June 14th 2012, Dr. J.K. Warrick, General Superintendent in the Church of the Nazarene, officially ordained Pastor Grant Verdoold as Elder in the Church of the Nazarene.
The beautiful service, and message delivered by Dr. Warrick, was the culmination of this year's Canada Central District Assembly, and was attended by many hundreds from across the District (Windsor to Ottawa, Thorold to Sault Ste. Marie), and a wonderful turn-out from Cedardale Church.
We congratulate Pastor Grant on all of the effort and dedication he has made and achieved on this part of his life journey with his Creator, leading to his ordination. As Dr. Warrick said during the service, "... this is the highest calling in the world ... and there is no retirement from it."
We congratulate Karen, too, for her contribution to Grant's efforts and successful completion of the requirements for ordination. We love you both, and we're excited that God has orchestrated this beautiful season in all of our lives. It is one of His masterpieces!
Katie and I are grateful to have been able to participate in this amazing evening. Congratulations Pastor Grant and Karen!
