Chris Solwecki faithfully served Glenn Park for nearly 5 years. In January, he informed the Elders of his need to resign to pursue the best health care possible for his daughter, and to provide important support to his wife by moving back to a region of the country where her family lives. In his own words to the congregation: “I’ve known this was necessary for a while now, but have fought it vigorously because I love you and because you have shown unwavering love for us. I’m not a person who gets to know people well, but your support, encouragement, sharpening, and kindness to me and my family has won me over. God knows what Glenn Park needs, and if you seek him, pray earnestly, trust your leadership, and ‘be the church,’ God will provide the exact right person for the next chapter in your story.”
Those who comprise Glenn Park and its leadership are confident in their mission, vision and core values, and believe that God will lead them through this time of transition. The elders and staff will lead the church until our next Lead Pastor is found. The Elders of Glenn Park are prayerfully considering the resumes that have been received and are looking to God for direction. In the interim, the following men have stepped up to fill in as interim preaching pastors.
- Tom Hawks
- Mike Kelly
- Dave Mauldin
