We are delighted to report that Gregory Stevens has accepted our invitation to be our full-time Associate Pastor for Faith Formation and Family Life. Gregory will begin his work here next week. Here is Gregory’s recent letter:
Dear First Baptist Church of Palo Alto,
I am honored and humbled to have been called as your Associate Pastor for Faith Formation and Family Life. I have no doubt that you all have worked hard and long during this process. I am thankful for your prayers, support, and for the invitation to partner with parents in raising faithful followers of Jesus Christ. As we discover how best to love God and love our neighbors together, I hope to incite wonder, provoke discovery, and fuel passion for social justice.
Alive and active, our faith is at its best when tangible expressions of love, justice, and peace make a difference in our lives and the lives of our neighbors. Our historical roots in the Baptist tradition are chock-full of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace G may we continue this good work together as we explore new ministry possibilities!
I look forward to camping, casseroles, and candle light vigils, to ice cream socials, yard sale fundraisers, and Friday night football games. I look forward to these magnificent tomorrows as we bring Love to life!
Grace and peace,
