“Melanie, Addison, and I are very excited to be appointed to serve you and Ormond Beach. I am honored to follow Pastor Kandace and to continue the good work for God’s kingdom she is doing. I look forward to the ways God will use Tomoka United Methodist Church to be the visible and active presence of Christ. I ask that you pray for my family and me, as we pray for you.”
