Installation Service Coming Soon!

We are entering a new era in the life of the Church at Faith Lutheran in Moorpark. By God’s grace and mercy, He has seen fit to send us a new pastor, Rev. Ernest Jeong. Things are happening very quickly. Pastor Jeong and his family will arrive in town on Aug 27 and have an apartment at The Ranch in Moorpark. The Elders will be meeting with Pastor Jeong on Sept 7 although we will probably be talking often before that. And then...

The Installation Service will be Sept 10 @ 4:00pm with a reception to follow. This is a very big event in the life of our congregation. Pastor Larry Stoterau, the President of the Pacific Southwest District, will conduct the installation along Pastor Tim Barkett, our Circuit Counselor. There will be other Pastors from the area with us. So please mark the date and time on your calendar and plan to attend. There will be more information sent out via email as we get closer.

Over the next several weeks Pastor Jeong will be getting to know people within the congregation. Reaching out to people has been a large part of his ministry in the past and we expect that ministry to continue. The Elders have already made plans and will continue to do so for a smooth transition.

While this is a time of joy and celebration for us, it is a time of sadness for Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Milton WA. They are saying goodbye to a Pastor who has served them faithfully for 5 years. Please keep Beautiful Savior in your prayers. Also please keep the Jeong family in your prayers for safe travels as they journey from Milton to Moorpark. This will be a stressful time for them and they need our support as the transition to a new home.

For those of you into social media, Pastor Jeong has a Facebook page:

Stop by and welcome him to family at Faith.

God’s Peace to all,
Dave Bovey

Call Committee Update

Through the leading of the Holy Spirit, and by the grace of God, we have elected to call the Reverend Ernest Jeong to be our next Pastor. Pastor Jeong is 37 years old, is married with three children (ages 10, 9 and 6), and is currently serving as Assistant Pastor at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Milton, Washington. Pastor Jeong was contacted by Pastor Barkett, our Circuit Counselor, following the Call service and he indicated that he is available and excited to consider the Call. The Call documents, including the Diploma of Vocation, compensation information and additional congregation information have been mailed to Pastor Jeong. The next step is for Pastor Jeong to review the Call documents, visit Faith and prayerfully seek God's will prior to deciding whether or not to accept the Call. This process will take between three to five weeks. Please continue to pray for Pastor Jeong and his family, for Beautiful Savior Lutheran, and for Faith Lutheran during this time.
