Special Announcement from Rev. Aaron Anderson

Dear friends and congregants,

For the last 18 months I have been working through a stirring in my heart regarding my sense of calling to City Church. I have analyzed and prayed about how my gifts and weaknesses have shaped, served and hindered City Church in the last five and a half years and how I might best serve Christ’s Kingdom in the future.

In this process of prayer and discernment, I have sought the counsel of numerous spiritual counselors and questioned my own heart and motives to discern if this was the moving of the Spirit or something else.

In late March I stepped into the role of Interim Transition Team Leader at Logos Academy on a part-time basis with the intention of concluding that role on June 30th. As the Logos Board of Directors planned for its future, I was asked to consider a long-term leadership role with the organization.

After much discernment, prayer and consultation, Gail and I have come to the conclusion we believe the Lord is leading me to this full-time role at Logos Academy to begin July 1st.

This will mean a transition of leadership for City Church. As the founding planter of City Church, this has been a difficult process for me. We deeply love the people at City Church and understand there is much more work to be done.

City Church’s borrowed session and Presbytery have engaged in discussion and have defined a search process for a new pastor for City Church. A search team is being assembled and will be made up of members of our borrowed session, members of City Church, and members of the Church Planting & Outreach committee of Presbytery. This team will refine the search process and lead City Church through it.

It has been a true joy and fulfilling experience to be a part of planting City Church and of being its pastor. I am so grateful that the Lord in his wisdom planted our family here in York in 2004 and is keeping us here in 2014 and beyond.

May Christ be glorified in His Church,

Rev. Aaron Anderson
