Our search for a new lead pastor candidate is over!
A culture of sending is at the heart of the Church at Martinsburg and in August of last year our founding pastor and his family were sent to the nations. Our Pastoral Search Team has spent 8 months reviewing over 60 resumes, listening to over 40 sermon samples, examining approximately 20 questionnaires, and conducting numerous interviews. We are now down to 1 man.
We are excited to announce AJ Roberts has been presented to the members of the Church at Martinsburg as the final candidate in consideration for the Lead Pastor position.
Pastor AJ has lived in Martinsburg for over 30 years, been an active member of the Church at Martinsburg for 9 years and has been serving our church faithfully as one of our pastors for 3 years. God has been preparing him for this new role for many years and we are so excited to see how God will use him and our church in the future.
Pastor AJ is a man passionate for God’s Word and he loves God’s people. AJ is a hardworking leader in our church; he has deep affection for our people, loves making disciples, and is engaged in the culture of the Church at Martinsburg. We’re excited to consider him moving into the role of Lead Pastor.
