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