Dear Church,

For those of you who were not able to be with us at Church in Conference on Sunday, I have some incredible news to share. After hearing from our candidate to become the new Minister to Students, our church unanimously voted to call Matt Hester to come and lead the student ministry here at FBC! The plan is for Matt and his family to move to Augusta over the next few weeks and begin this new season of ministry with us beginning in August.

I want to take a moment and publicly say “Thank you” to the members of the Search Committee that worked so hard over the past six months. Their time and dedication to our church has helped us arrive at this moment. I am incredibly grateful. Make sure that you tell them the same thing when you see them around our campus.

I hope that the summer is going well for each of you. As always, I am proud to be your pastor.

Grace and Peace,
