Since 1983, Cherrydale Baptist Church has been blessed by the service of Senior Pastor Steve King. In October 2017, Pastor King shared with the Cherrydale family that “after much prayer and reflection, I believe that God has called me to serve at Cherrydale five more years….The plan is that I will continue to preach and function as your senior pastor for at least two more years and then shift to a new role of support for the next generation of leadership.”
Our elders’ strong desire is to see a healthy, effective succession in leadership under which the vision and ministry of Cherrydale continue uninterrupted and the congregation is informed and engaged.
Cherrydale members are encouraged to come with feedback and questions to our elders on the pastoral succession process. Register for one of the following forums (childcare provided at both forums for registered infants through 6th-graders):
- Sunday, Apr. 15 at 5:30 pm (pizza provided) | Childcare available.
- Wednesday, Apr. 18 at 7:00 pm | Nursery childcare available. Children four through 6th graders attend Kids Club (first-timers register here).
