Senior Pastor Accepted! – Dec. 17

Troy-Kimberly

On Sunday December 17th we learned that Pastor Troy Teeter accepted the calling to be the senior pastor for our church!

We are very excited to have him and Kim coming to Baker City in January and getting settled into the community.

The Church Board wants to thank all of you for your prayers concerning this important decision for our church family.

From Pastor Troy’s Facebook on 12/17/2017.

“Well, the news is out and we are excited to share that Kim and I have accepted the senior pastorate of Baker City, Oregon Church of the Nazarene.

While we are extremely excited for this new part of our journey, we are sad to be leaving what has truly become a home for us in Aurora with many friends that we count as family. So many emotions, but God is faithful and continues to sustain us and gives us peace.”
