For several months now we have been talking about and planning for the arrival of “The Curate,” a newly ordained clergy person who will be coming on staff here this summer. Well, Grace Church, blessings abound! After months of conversation and discernment and with full vestry and diocesan support, Jodi and Christian Baron, will be coming to Grace together to be “The Curates” – plural. Each will have a distinct job description but they will share this full-time position while also settling themselves and their three daughters into lives of ministry in Western Michigan.
We’ll communicate information about their diaconal ordinations and arrival in Holland as the details are put in place. For now, visit this link for a little more about Jodi’s and Christian’s ministry areas and an introduction to the Baron family.
