Bishop John Zuck officiating in the installation of Jimmy Lang as pastor of the Bethel Brethren in Christ Church.

Our Promise
Bishop: Will you encourage your pastor and wife always by displaying loving support, understanding forgiveness, and by following their leadership as they follow Christ?

Congregation: We will.

Pastor's Promise
Bishop: Jimmy, as you are installed as pastor of the Bethel Congregation, do you promise that if you are wronged, you will forgive as you expect to be forgiven, to seek always to keep yourself spiritually sensitive, mentally alert, emotionally strong, and physically fit? Do you promise, as much as lies within you, to be at peace with all, and to lead this congregation in the way of Christ as the Holy Spirit grants to you wisdom and power?

Jimmy: I do, with God's help.

Bishop Zuck, Deacon Forsee and Sister Byler pray over our new pastor and wife.


  1. It is such a blessing to have been able to find a new pastor so soon...and to have family so close by! Which side of your family is Carmen from--your Mom or your Dad?

  2. Carmen is Dad's brother's daughter.
