Moody Bible Picks Multisite Pastor as Its New President
Jobe, the founding pastor of New Life Community Church, will serve as Moodyâ€™s tenth president.
His tenure begins in January, a year after Moodyâ€™s previous president J. Paul Nyquist and chief operating officer Steve Mogck resigned as the schoolâ€™s board declared it was â€śtime for a new season of leadershipâ€ť following layoffs and mounting tensions between the faculty and administration.
â€śWe have had a vision for Chicago and beyond and seen God do some amazing things â€¦ and we continue with that passion and that vision. Recently, God has opened up a great door of opportunity,â€ť Jobe, who holds a diploma and masterâ€™s degree from Moody, said in a video announcement to the New Life community....
Pastor Jobe has a missional viewpoint, he might not be you reformed cup of tea, but , he is an evangelist and folks, without the evangelist, who will go and tell? Has God not gone ahead and planted the field for harvest?
Hmmm..."multi-site" pastor...interesting! i think this is the new model that the modern church growth experts have come up with. i can't wait until we find a 'smartphone pastor' who only appears in 'cyberspace' things are starting to look more like a science fiction movie every day! i need to watch "Sleeper" again to pick up more points.
