Our Interim Pastor is here!

We are delighted to welcome our Interim Pastor, Dr. Richard E. Cryder, and his wife Diane to IBC. Despite still being jet-lagged, Rick preached an excellent and challenging sermon at our Sunday service on October 7. Rick has 24 years’ experience as a full-time senior pastor in three churches, and has theological qualifications from Grace Theological Seminary and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has undergone a training course on Interim Ministry and has just completed a period as Interim Pastor in Pennsylvania. We are delighted to have Rick and Diane join our church family. (Feel free to leave a welcome message on the “Comments” section on the left.)

Many thanks for your willingness to serve our church and bless our community. Welcome and may the LORD bless you both richly.
