Chesapeake Pastors Attend Special Ministerial Meeting

  • News

The day included a farewell for outgoing ministerial director Eli Rojas.

Pastors from across the Chesapeake Conference gathered at the conference headquarters in Columbia, Md., on August 29 for a jam-packed day of ministerial meetings. The day featured a wide range of activities ranging from training and announcements to the special recognition of a few individuals.

The day’s guest speaker was evangelist John Earnhardt, who shared ministry lessons from his personal testimony of coming to Christ from an auto-racing background. The cousin of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt emphasized how Christians can use personal hobbies and interests to connect with people who might not otherwise listen to a traditional sermon.

The meetings also served as an opportunity for pastors to say farewell to outgoing ministerial director Eli Rojas. Rojas, who recently accepted a call to serve at the North American Division Evangelism Institute, was presented with a plaque by Jerry Lutz, Chesapeake Conference president, in recognition of his nine years of service to the conference. 

Conference pastors also officially welcomed John Rengifo and Shelvan Arunan to the Ministerial Department, who will begin in their new roles in September and October, respectively.

Six pastors were recognized for nearing completion of a Clinical Pastoral Education course: Kelvis Romero, Hope Dike, Anibal Santeliz, Jenner Becerra, Dan Darrikhuma, and Esteban Paredes.
