Zach Batson, Associate Pastor at Journey@McPherson was licensed towards ordination by Regional Conference Minister Clarence Rempel on January 26. It was also the 7th Anniversary of the beginning of the church. Zach came to a fullness of faith in Jesus Christ and was baptized in the early years of the church. He was mentored by Pastor Jim Ostlund, and entered into leadership through worship ministry. He completed a two-year Masters Degree in Spiritual Formation at Friends University in 2019. South Central Mennonite Conference supported Zach in his study for ministry with $2,000 in Education Grants designed specifically for conference members seeking pastoral training. Praise the Lord for this call on Zach’s life and into ministry! Pray for Zach, Journey@McPherson, and the two-year discernment of a possible lifelong call to ministry that this License begins.
