Grace and peace in the name of Jesus Christ. The ministry is thrilled to announce that at Bobby Schuller, Chad Blake, and Russ Jacobson were ordained as ministers of the Word and sacrament in the Reformed Church in America (RCA) on Sunday, June 28th in a service at Shepherd’s Grove Church. This was the culmination of almost a decade of study, prayer and discernment. Bobby, Chad and Russ are all graduates of Fuller Theological Seminary, and the denomination’s Ministerial Formation Certification Agency (MFCA).
This was the first triple ordination in the history of the California Classis – the regional body of the RCA. Please join us in celebrating this milestone! This ministry has a proud history of being led by seminary trained, ordained ministers, and this tradition is alive and well. Ministers cannot be ordained without a specific ministerial call, and we are pleased to report that Bobby, Chad and Russ will be serving us as follows: Bobby as Lead Pastor, Chad as the Executive Pastor of Shepherd’s Grove Church and Russ as the Executive Pastor of The Hour of Power & Chief Operating Officer of the ministry.
Bobby, Chad and Russ – we are blessed by your leadership and delighted to make this journey with you. Let us all continue to press on for the glory of God, and the advancement of his kingdom.
