REVEREND BRIAN MERZ ORDINATION
The Summit Church congregation in Boise, ID gathered on Sunday evening, March 27 to ordain Pastor Brian Merz to the Gospel Ministry. Rev. Duane Vaughn chaired the local Ordination Council which met previously on Saturday, January 27. The Council, composed of delegates from sister Mission Northwest churches, examined Brian and recommended that Summit Church proceed to ordain Brian. Brian’s ordination meets the standard ABC-USA requirements to have his local church ordination recognized by the Region and ABC-USA. Brian has served in various roles in his 26.5 years of ministry at Summit and is deeply appreciated by the congregation. Presently he is the Discipleship Pastor. Pastor Jim Steiner is the lead pastor at Summit Church and preached the ordination message.
