As of this morning, I am now listed in the Conference Journal not as supply pastor, ministry intern or student pastor, but assistant pastor. (Actually, I never have been a supply pastor, but they get nice purple tags at conference. Perhaps they are especially pentinent.) (Mine was blue and now is brown -- so I'm full of -- Chocolate?)
This is, by the way, a Yipee! moment. Titles left to go: Probitionary Member then Elder. Lord willing and crick don't rise. Only, what, 5 or 6 more years??
