Staff Transition Plan
Our Lead Pastor, Larry Veach, has announced his retirement, effective June 1st, 2018. The elders of New Life Christian Church have decided to transition current Teen Pastor, Kraig Bishop, to the role of Lead Pastor. In addition, they have decided to transition current Children’s Pastor, Jon Rhoades, to the role of Teen Pastor. This means we will be hiring a new full-time Children’s Pastor. We believe that Jon led well in moving our Children’s Ministry forward and we will look for someone to continue that forward motion. New Life Christian Church has been given an opportunity very few congregations receive: the opportunity to transition well. Below is a tentative schedule for how our transition will proceed:
Search Begins for Full-Time Children’s Pastor.
Position is officially available after January 1, 2018.
January 1, 2018
Kraig Bishop becomes Lead Pastor in Transition.

When new hire arrives, Jon Rhoades becomes Teen Pastor.
June 1, 2018
Lead Pastor Larry Veach Retires.
Kraig Bishop becomes Lead Pastor.
