Chesapeake Conference recently welcomed Rodrick London as the new pastor of the Federalsburg (Md.), Sussex Central (Md.), and Seaford (Del.) district on the Eastern Shore. London was officially installed as the new district pastor during Sabbath worship services on Sept. 18.
“Pastor London was brought to us by the Lord,” says Eli Rojas, ministerial director for Chesapeake Conference. “The story of how he came to our area is a great reminder that God has a plan for our lives. If we are willing to go wherever He sends us, we’ll be able to see His hand doing great things in us and through us. We are so happy to have the London family on our team.”
London comes to the Chesapeake Conference from Tennessee, where he previously served as associate pastor of the Knoxville First church. No stranger to the area, London grew up in the Westminster (Md.) church, where his parents remain active members.
London is enjoying getting to know his new churches and is excited by future opportunities for evangelism. “I am excited to listen to the needs of these communities and begin to live a life of servant leadership,” he says. “I plan on conducting a formal evangelistic series in the future, and I am happy with the warm way we have been welcomed at the churches.”
London is joined in ministry by his wife, Meagan, and their 21-month-old daughter, Mila. The couple is expecting twins.
