We currently do not have a Lead Pastor. We accepted Pastor Douglas' resignation on March 11 effective at the end of April, as he prepares to move back to Pennsylvania to be near his parents.
On March 13 we had to close the physical church. Until we can meet in person we cannot have a Congregational Meeting and form a Pastor Search Committee.
In the mean time Church Council, with their authority to act for the congregation in between Congregational Meetings has taken the following actions -
- Laura B. Doscher
Chair of Church Council
Pastor Todd is an ordained minister currently working full time as an Assistant Pastor at White Rock Community Church.
Todd grew up in a home that was centered in service to the church. In his youth his home was often host to bible college students, missionaries, bible college professors and Christian musicians. He is a graduate from Ozark Christian College. During his college years he went on weekend preaching and teaching ministries with his professors. He spent time volunteering at Revival Fires an evangelical crusade ministry and volunteered at Good News Productions International. It was at the college library he began his journey to expand beyond conservative theology to embrace a fuller and deeper theology and spirituality from authors like Nouwen, Nee, Buechner, Bonhoeffer and articles from the Whittenburg Door, etcetera.
Todd has served WRCC in a variety of capacities; Chair of Celebration, Deacon, Choir, drama and church play writer, interpreter for the deaf and as worship and song leader. He has also completed the Lay Training year program designed by Brite University. In the Assistant Pastor capacity he fills the Pulpit and facilitates Sunday school or Bible Studies as needed. Todd may also lend his creativity to special services during the church seasons or create workshops to teach about services or roles within the church.
Todd’s varied background in acting/ play writing with 10 years of experience, being in interior design and event planning for 4 years, coupled with interpreting for the deaf for over 33 years and participating in foreign missions/ church planting for 4 years has provided the perfect foundation for his pastoring to WRCC.
