On Sunday, July 7, 2019, Pastor Jon Jenkins resigned as the pastor of Grace Baptist Church to accept the call to be the next pastor of the Fellowship Baptist Church of Clayton, North Carolina.
We would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to Dr. and Mrs. Jenkins for 33 years of successful ministry in northern Michigan. As the founder and visionary of Grace, Pastor Jenkins’ leadership has guided our church family through storms, trials, challenges, deaths and hardships – but also through prosperity, new life, expansions, and a level of growth rarely seen in such a rural area.
We are honored that Dr. Jenkins has spent these years of ministry in Gaylord, Michigan. As the Lord is leading him through this transition, Pastor Jenkins has our full support, blessings, and prayers in the days ahead.
Pastor Jenkins has poured his life into Grace Baptist Church, and we are excited to continue his legacy.
Thank you, Pastor and Mrs. Jenkins, for your love, prayers and friendship over the past three decades.
