On Sunday, March 16, I announced that there will be a change of pastoral leadership at Waggoners beginning July 1. Bishop Jeremiah Park and his cabinet have appointed me to serve St. Paul’s UMC in Red Lion, PA. The phone call from the superintendent came suddenly and unexpectedly. Neither I, nor the SPPRC members, who represent this church, asked for the move. However, in our denomination this sometimes happens when unanticipated circumstances leave a church needing a pastor. The Methodist church is an Episcopal system, meaning the Bishop has the power and final say so to appoint pastors to corresponding congregations. It is also an itinerant system, meaning pastors agree at ordination to go or itinerate where the Bishop directs. For 16 years the Conference leadership allowed me to minister here, and for that I am deeply grateful. Couple this with the fact that Tom Willard served 13 years here before me. This adds up to only two pastors in 29 years at Waggoners, something that doesn’t happen very often in the UMC. SPPRC Chairperson, Leroy Hoover, will announce the new pastor on Sunday, March 30. Right now this doesn’t seem real to me. But, as time for the move draws closer, it will be hard to leave you all. My family and I have grown up with you. Thank you for all the love and support you have given the Funk’s over the past 16 years. My last Sunday will be June 8. After that I take 2 weeks vacation and attend Annual Conference. The last week of June is a moving week, one in which I have no responsibilities at Waggoners or St. Paul’s. My sole responsibility will be moving my family to Red Lion. I have 10 more Sunday at Waggoners, which will give me the opportunity to thank you even more and set the stage for a new era of pastoral leadership.
