Dear ARC family,
We have been in significant discernment for the next steps of the Alliance of Renewal Churches. After many conversations and deliberate prayer, we are happy to announce that Sean Kelly will step in and serve as the Interim Director of ARC. Sean is currently the Sr. Pastor at Peñasquitos Lutheran Church in San Diego, CA and will maintain his full responsibilities there. He has committed to serving on a limited part-time basis through the end of 2022, providing strategic leadership, communications, and coordinating ARC events that we have come to know, love and look forward to. This appointment will begin May 1. Please join us in welcoming Sean to this position and committing to prayer for him and the ARC!
We recognize there has been a long period of silence from the Leadership Team and we are deeply grateful for your grace and understanding during this period of discernment. We are equally grateful for those individuals and congregations who continue to support ARC with your financial gifts and we ask you to continue to do so. You can expect a video greeting and update from Sean Kelly in the very near future.
We look forward to the time when we can be together again in person. Until then, we remain united in the Spirit.
