Kevin's Farewell Announcement

Image
Dear Friends,
It is with great excitement, a little bit of sadness, and assuredness of God’s Call on my life that I announce my departure from Walla Walla Presbyterian Church as the Director of Youth Ministries. In response to God’s timing, I leave to begin my grad studies at San Francisco Theological Seminary, pursuing a Masters of Divinity in order to move toward ordination as a pastor.
