Ladies and Gentlemen, esteemed colleagues, beloved brothers and sisters in faith,
Greetings in the most precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
When I first took on this task of leading our church, I was filled with a mixture of anticipation and apprehension, a combination of fear and faith. Over these past years, however, all apprehension has subsided, replaced by a deep sense of gratitude and fulfillment. I stand before you tonight filled with a profound sense of humility, steeped in honor, cherishing every memory and pondering every moment we have spent together as a church community.
As I prepare to step down and pass the baton to the next leader, I am reminded of the words of Saint Paul in his letter to the Philippians, "I thank my God every time I remember you." Indeed, every one of you has played an integral part in my journey as your church leader, and for that, I am eternally thankful.
Our church has seen numerous milestones and accomplished great things in the time we have laboured together. We've sung praises together, bowed our heads in prayer together, laughed and cried together. We built relationships and ties that have forged us into a strong, enduring family.
We have faced insurmountable odds, weathered many storms, and experienced the highs and lows that life brings. And through it all, we have emerged stronger, engrained with a deeper understanding and appreciation of God's unwavering love and mercy.
As I prepare to pass on this great legacy and responsibility, I wish to reassure you that my faith in our community and our mission never waivers. The church's future remains bright, nurtured by the strength of our faith, the integrity of our community, and the resolve to stand by each other no matter what.
To my successor, carry this mantle with a humble heart and a spirit of servitude. Lead with understanding, inspire with love, and always keep God's word at the helm. Remember that we are all imperfect and in constant need of God's grace.
I ask all of you to welcome and support your new leader, just as you welcomed and supported me. Be each other's beacon of light, tapping into the strength that a faithful and unified community naturally possesses.
Lastly, but certainly not least, I express my deepest thanks to my supportive family, who have been my rock and solace through this journey.
As I step down from this role, I don't view it as an end, but as a new beginning. A new chapter in our service and worship to God. I will continue to serve our Lord and remain an active part of our church community, working and praying alongside all of you.
To our Lord, I say - To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. In you, I trust.
And to you, my fellow congregants, I express my deepest gratitude and love. Being your church leader was a privilege of the highest order and truly a blessing from God.
May the good Lord continue to bless all of you and our church. Let God’s will continue to be done on earth as it is in heaven. All glory, honor, and praise be to our heavenly Father.
Thank you all, God bless you, and God bless our church.
In His Service,
