Ordination of Eric VanderMolen at Bethany URC

Last night I had the privilege of participating in the ordination of Eric VanderMolen, one of our PRTS graduates, at Bethany United Reformed Church, in Wyoming, Michigan. Rev. Greg Lubbers preached an excellent and personal ordination sermon, “A Charge to the Gospel Ministry,” from 2 Timothy 4:1-5, unpacking the charge’s context, action, and manner; Rev. Casey Freswick, who has served this flock well for twenty years, led the ordination; and I gave the prayer of intercession. Please pray for Rev. Eric and Lori VanderMolen as he leads this flock of several hundred members as a young preacher and pastor that God may fulfil for him the rich promise of Ephesians 3:20-21.
