Teaching Elder update

Over the last several weeks we have hosted two men, Troy Solava and Darrell Morgen, as candidates for the teaching elder position at CVBC. Both proved to be mature Christian men and  capable teachers, but after prayer and discussion the elders have unanimously decided to invite Troy Solava and his wife, Lindsay, back to CVBC to meet the congregation and to continue discussing with them the possibility of serving as our next teaching  elder. Originally from the Chicago area, Troy has a B.A. from Moody  Bible Institute, served as Director of Student Ministry at First Evangelical Free Church in Rockford, IL, and is currently completing his Masters of Divinity at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, where he works as an intern to Albert Mohler.

Troy is a young man who is deeply thoughtful about the Scriptures, is   a gifted preacher, is a warm encourager of people, and has a marked humility in his interaction with others. We believe Troy will integrate well into our elder team and that he has the vision to help us in our responsibility as elders to guard, shepherd, encourage, and prepare you, our CVBC church family, for the work of the ministry.

Due to an upcoming missions trip that Troy and Lindsay are participating in, it works best to host them for a second visit next weekend, June 23-24. That’s coming up quickly, so we don’t have a complete schedule finalized at the time this bulletin went to print, but please watch for a CVBC-ALL e-mail early this coming week that will describe some opportunities for you to meet Troy and Lindsay during next weekend. If you don’t receive the CVBC-ALL e-mails, contact the church office.

We have decided not to ask Troy to preach a sermon at CVBC on short notice, but we will instead include here (and in the e-mail) links to sermons he gave during his time in Rockford.

  #1 (Matt. 16:13-20)   https://subspla.sh/9n6x5mf
  #2 (Philippians 4:10-20)  https://subspla.sh/da731e6

We will have Troy and Lindsay introduce themselves during our Sunday service on June 24, and we will set up one or more times outside the service for you to meet them and ask questions. We covet your continued prayers and invite you to approach any CVBC elder (see the back cover of the bulletin this week) with questions or feedback you have on the transition process, or regarding Troy in particular.

Sincerely, CVBC Elder Team
