Leadership Change

Change is inevitable they say – and they would be right. Still, it’s not every day
that a church has a change in regard to its senior pastor (thankfully) but this is
where Vision Christian Family finds itself as of this past Sunday.
Jocie and I find it a real privilege to be entrusted with the leadership of Vision
Christian Family after you have enjoyed such a long, stable and enriching ministry
under Pastor Geoff and Theresa. 42 years is quite a significant season in
leadership. We are very grateful that they will both continue to play a part in the
church in whatever way the Lord leads them. We look forward to an ongoing
relationship with them and a growing relationship with the rest of the leadership
team and all of you who call Vision Christian Family home.
As I said on Sunday, we very much see ourselves as stepping into an already
strong flowing stream of God’s purpose here at VCF. I repeat the Scripture I
quoted on Sunday – Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this, that he who began a
good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” God
has been doing a good work here at VCF and He will continue to do so.
God was not waiting for Jocie and I to arrive to see His plan unfold – His plan has
been unfolding for many years and we are excited to see what the continuance
of that means in coming months and years.
We have been called here to be a part of that but it is a plan that we all share in
as a local body of believers. As Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 12:18-20 “But in fact
God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them
to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many
parts, but one body.”
So, as Jocie and I join you here at Vision Christian Family we encourage you to
continue to find and express your part in the Body. None of us are called to do
it all and all of us have a place and a purpose in what God is doing.
We really do look forward to walking this journey of faith and service with you all.

About us

Our vision is to be a caring and empowering community of God’s people, bringing healing and restoring hope through life  changing encounter with Jesus Christ.

We not only have a big heart for people but a big heart for our city. Vision Christian Family is one of a number of Ipswich churches who want to see Christ’s kingdom dynamically established in the lives of God’s people. Everything we do ultimately works toward this single purpose.
