Bay Presbyterian Church welcomes transitional senior pastor
On Sunday, Feb. 12, Bay Presbyterian Church (BPC) welcomed Rev. Bob Hopper to the church to shepherd the congregation as the new transitional senior pastor. He was called by BPC’s Session to help prepare the church for the subsequent calling of a new senior pastor.
"We are excited to welcome Bob and his wife, Tacey, to the Cleveland area. We believe that under his leadership, this will be a time of spiritual fruitfulness and growth," said John Meaux, a member of Session, the local governing body of Bay Presbyterian Church, comprised of church elders and pastors. "Rev. Hopper gives BPC a unique outside perspective in leading us forward. This experience will help the congregation through the transition from one senior pastor to another."
Rev. Hopper has nearly 40 years of experience as a Presbyterian pastor, and for the past seven years has served as a transitional pastor for various Evangelical Presbyterian Churches in cities such as Fresno, Indianapolis, Wichita and St. Louis.
“My call as a transitional pastor is to help the leadership of BPC get a clear picture of what God is doing and will do in the months ahead as the church prepares, searches for, finds, and receives a new senior pastor,” said Rev. Hopper.
