…We are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

Ephesians 4:15-16

Jesus is ever-faithful to MPC, bringing the right parts for His body and enabling us to work together properly — what a needed grace. Join us in blessing Hilary and welcoming Christina and Chelsea!

Hilary Tompkins has answered the call to dedicate her working energies to her local church, and finished her last day as MPC’s administrator on May 5th. Hilary blessed us with five years of faithful, creative service, and we thank God for how her organizational gifts and nurturing spirit shaped this ministry for the better. She’ll continue as an intercessor for MPC, and has promised to visit us in Cedar Springs this July. Thank you Hilary! May God bless the work of your hands as you apply your talents in new ways. We honor your passion to see His body built up in love, and ask the Spirit to send you into this new season with a heart full of His peace and joy.

Welcome to our new office manager, Christina Pestana! Christina brings a wealth of ministry experience using her well-honed administrative gifts. She’ll be working closely with Sill Davis, MPC’s executive director, in planning events and keeping our base of operations running smoothly. We are grateful for Christina’s dedication to prayer and her commitment to following Jesus in all she does. It’s no small thing to find an administrator with the required skills and talents who is also passionate about the healing, transforming work of Jesus. Christina, we thank God for leading you to join the MPC staff. We pray that He’ll richly bless your heart in the deepest places even as your work enables others to receive that same blessing.

Welcome to our new communications coordinator, Chelsea Peck. Chelsea is passionate about maturity in Christ, for herself and for all. Her dedication to MPC’s mission grew out of her personal experience at a five-day school. She’ll be responding to your letters and emails, and applying her creative gifts to our newsletter and website. We’re grateful for the love of truth and beauty that Chelsea brings to her MPC work, and for the pastoral sensitivity that shapes every message she writes. Chelsea, we praise God for how His love shines through your life. We pray that He’ll cause every bit of your MPC work to bless you and grow you up into Christ.
