Ecclesiastical Council for Three Atlanta-area People

The Southeast Conference of the United Church of Christ is calling an ecclesiastical council to consider ordaining Heather Bardole, Josh Kuipers and Jodi Yarini. We will gather on Saturday, August 27 at 1:00 p.m. at Virginia-Highland Church, 743 Virginia Ave NE in Atlanta, GA.

Heather and Josh are members of Kirkwood UCC in Atlanta. Jodi is the licensed pastor of Decatur UCC in Decatur, GA.

As members of the United Church of Christ, our congregational polity gives us the privilege of discerning and deciding who our minister will be. We invite all to come to hear these folks talk about their faith, call to ministry and sense of vocation. Ask them questions. Pray with them and for them. And be part of the body deciding how to answer their request for ordination.

Your presence, prayers and support will mean a great deal to all the candidates.
