Moody Bible Picks Multisite Pastor as Its New President
Jobe, the founding pastor of New Life Community Church, will serve as Moodyâs tenth president.
His tenure begins in January, a year after Moodyâs previous president J. Paul Nyquist and chief operating officer Steve Mogck resigned as the schoolâs board declared it was âtime for a new season of leadershipâ following layoffs and mounting tensions between the faculty and administration.
âWe have had a vision for Chicago and beyond and seen God do some amazing things âŠ and we continue with that passion and that vision. Recently, God has opened up a great door of opportunity,â Jobe, who holds a diploma and masterâs 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.
