We have been at Dunningville for almost a decade and, although it has been a good place to live and minister, we have increasingly come to believe that it was time to move. After months of discussion, thought, prayer, and discernment, we are pleased to announce that I have been offered and accepted the Call to become the next minister of Pultneyville Reformed Church.
Pultneyville is on the shore of Lake Ontario, north of Rochester – less than two hours from Niagara Falls in one direction and the Finger Lakes in the other. It sits nestled in the middle of hundreds of acres of fruit orchards (many of which are apples).

Thus far, we have found the people to be open and friendly – even the interviews were fair (and, for those of you who don’t know, church interviews can be a real beast!)
It is, of course, a bittersweet move – we have poured our lives into the people of Dunningville, however we are excited about the change and looking forward to a new context and a new congregation to live and minister with.
Unfortunately, we didn’t take any pictures of the people during our candidating weekend, but we did take some of the facility….
Stay tuned, I’m sure I’ll be posting more about the transition in the coming weeks and months!
Grace and Peace,
