introducing pastor joe
on sunday, pasadena mennonite church officially installed joe roos as their lead pastor after two years of searching for someone to replace jim brenneman who had helped found pmc and had been the only lead pastor this young church had ever known.
this is a significant moment in any faith community. selecting someone to lead is a difficult task, but i think we've found a pretty special guy in pastor joe. he helped jim wallis start sojourners magazine, has spent several years as a lead pastor near washington dc, and just returned from serving at an international school in india with his wife. for a church that is passionate about global issues, social justice, and christ's call to peace, he should fit in just perfectly.
i can't take credit for this photo. pmc is fortunate to have several gifted photographers. john barkman is one of them and he does an exceptional job at documenting the life of the church. this photo is his, and if you'd like to sample more of his work, check out this website.
