Pastoral Call

The pulpit committee, having met on Saturday, December 20th, made their recommendation to Sovereign Grace Baptist Church with regard to calling Jon Cardwell as the congregation’s next pastor. The congregation voted on Sunday, December 21st, and the call was extended that afternoon. Brother Jon has humbly accepted the Lord’s call through the believers of Sovereign Grace Baptist Church and will be working with the leadership to transition from California to Alabama.

Brother Cardwell has recently served as a missionary-pastor to congregations in remote villages of Alaska since 2002 and had to leave as symptoms of an illness yet to be diagnosed forced him and his family to leave the harsh enviornment of “bush” Alaska.  Since his honorable discharge from the US Navy in 1993, he has also served the Lord in missions to Asia and as a pastor to a local congregation in Riverside, California.
